Design Journal, the international trade publication for interior designers, architects and facility managers, is the sponsor of the ADEX Awards.
An anonymous panel of professionals representing a cross section of the design industry conducts all voting for the ADEX Awards. ADEX judges are among the best in their respective areas of expertise and the ADEX represents the best product designs of the year in the opinion of those who themselves reside at the top of their specialty.
