SOM’s Nada Andric in Interior Design Hall of Fame

Nada Andric, associate director and Chicago office interior design studio head of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) has been inducted into Interior Design magazine’s Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame was established by the US-based magazine in 1985 to recognise individuals who have made significant contributions to the growth and prominence of the design industry.

“It is truly an honour to be a 2011 inductee into Interior Design’s Hall of Fame and to be joining an elite group of professionals.  My work is a passion of mine so to be recognized by my colleagues and collaborators with such a high honor is simply astonishing,” Andric said.

Previous Hall of Fame luminaries include Antonio Citterio, Clodagh, Thiery W. Despont, Frank Gehry, Albert Hadley, Andre Putman, David Rockwell, Lauren Rottet, Philippe Starck, Robert A.M. Stern and SOM Interior Design Partner, Stephen Apking.

In addition to Andric, Patricia Urquiola, David Keinberg and George Beylerian will also be inducted into the class of 2011.

Since joining SOM in 1992, Andric has focused her extensive design experience on large-scale global architecture and interior design projects which have given her the opportunity to work in 13 countries.

Her work can be seen in some of the world’s most iconic buildings including Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building in Dubai, and Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, China, which upon its completion was China’s tallest building.

Nada’s body of work also includes Virginia Beach Convention Center (Virginia Beach, USA), Korea World Trade Center Expansion (Seoul, South Korea), Hyatt Global Headquarters (Chicago, USA), Nestlé Makati Administrative Offices (Manila, Philippians), Xerox Center (Chicago, USA) and The Broadgate Tower (London, UK).
