Merit Display: The Solutions Center


Chicago, Illinois, USA


As a leader in building products innovation and service to the design community, USG Interiors had amassed a significant collection of physical awards and accolades. The company hired Starr Design to create two display areas to enhance the entry and exit experiences at the coat gallery and elevator area, respectively, in the Chicago showroom.

A custom millwork panel, finished in high gloss automotive coating, holds textured and clear glass panels for displaying paper awards. Adjustable custom hardware secures the glass panels to the routed millwork. In the coat gallery, a suspended manufactured display system supports plaques and framed awards. The versatility of the integrated systems allows the client to easily update materials and consistently feature the company’s contributions to the design industry and non-profit organizations.
