Products to aid those with memory loss and an exhibition stand made from carved blue foam and mirrors are among the award winners at this year's International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York.
Dezeen US editor Dan Howarth was on the judging panel, alongside Annie Block of Interior Design, Melissa Feldman of Stroll Productions, Sheila Kim of Architizer and Paul Makovsky of Metropolis. Together they selected winners in 12 categories.
New York's Pratt Institute received the Wellness award for a collection of homeware and furniture designed to improve the lives of those suffering from Alzheimer's disease, which affects memory and other mental functions.
Meanwhile, the School Installation award went to the University of Cincinnati's colour-coordinated display of products created through a cross-department collaboration.
The winners of the Booth Design prize were Two Parts and Katie Shima, for a compact space lined with blue modelling foam cut into sculptural shapes. The booth was used to showcase the Brooklyn company's ceramic LED lighting.
Trueing, a Brooklyn-based design studio set up just four months before the fair, received the Emerging Designer accolade after presenting a set of table lamps with spinning dichroic disks.
Recognition for lighting was split into two: a ceiling spotlight that pops out of its fixtures by Delta Light won for Architectural Lighting, and a spherical design with circuits of LEDs inside by Jason Krugman Studio snatched the trophy for Decorative Lighting.
Material Innovation went to Shore Rugs for its floor coverings woven from silicone strips, Textiles was given to Louise Gray's soft-toned quilts and coverings, and the Kitchen/Bathroom winner was the Nice Collection of transparent taps by Fantini.
