The Ville de Montréal, through its Bureau du design, has presented the Phyllis Lambert Design Montréal Grant since 2008 to a Montréal designer or design collective with fewer than 10 years’ practice, having demonstrated exceptional quality in studies and work as well as marked interest in the city, particularly Montréal. The $10,000 grant is intended for young designers and must be used for a professional development project that involves a design theme focusing on The City and taking place in one of the cities of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network

The grant is named in honour of Phyllis Lambert, a Great Montrealer, passionate champion of excellence in architecture and staunch defender of emerging designers. In naming the grant for Ms. Lambert, the Ville de Montréal sought to underscore her remarkable contribution to the international reputation of Montréal and to the quality of life of its citizens, as well as the decisive influence she has had on the quality of urban planning, architecture and design in the city.

C’est vendredi le 23 mai dernier que se tenait l’AGA de l’APDIQ.

Cent-dix-huit (118) membres étaient réunis à l’Agora du Design, en plein coeur du SIDIM, pour assister au rapport annuel de l’association, mais aussi applaudir et accueillir les nouveaux membres provisoires, certifiés et honoraires.

Les membres ont aussi élus deux nouveaux administrateurs, soit Marie-Josée Despins et Yacine Yalaoui, qui siègeront dès le mois de juin au conseil d'administration.

Les Designers d’Intérieur du Canada étaient présents, représentés par Susan Wiggins, directrice générale de l’association.

L’association nommait trois nouveaux membres honoraires cette année: Messieurs Claude Bérubé, Philippe Dagenais et Alain Moureaux pour leurs carrières exceptionnelles de designer d’intérieur et leurs contributions à la profession du design d’intérieur.

Un hommage a été rendu à Monsieur André Lapointe, décédé en avril dernier. André Lapointe a été président de l’association de 2003 à 2012.

L’assemblée s’est terminée par un cocktail offert aux membres dans le contexte festif du SIDIM.




It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of André Lapointe. André was a champion of the interior design profession, having contributed to the creation of de l'Association professionnelle des designers d'intérieur du Québec (APDIQ). He was also one of the founding members of Mission Design, working in collaboration with architects, landscape architects, graphic designers, industrial designers, and urban planners.

André's career in interior design was multifaceted. After graduating from interior design school, he was responsible for designing many of the buildings and offices used by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), including administrative and executive offices, and spaces used by high level ministers including past governor generals Roméo LeBlanc, Adrienne Clarkson and Michaëlle Jean.

A champion of Canadian interior design, André was the president of APDIQ from its founding in 2003 to 2012, and served on its board until 2014. During his time as president, his oversaw APDIQ's integration as a provincial association of IDC, and was responsible for creating the "Designer d'intérieur certifié APDIQ®" certification.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
