The companies invite all architects and designers to share their work with colleagues and peers around the world in the second annual 2018 Best of LaCantina. The design competition recognizes architectural excellence, creativity and innovation for the best use of LaCantina’s open space products and solutions. For more than 85 years Interior Design has been a curator, innovator and influencer in the design industry and is a global resource for design professionals.
Open to residential and commercial architects, interior designers and interior architects, home builders and developers, the competition aims to showcase contemporary design and celebrate the ways designers have used LaCantina products in their projects.

LaCantina is a designer and manufacturer of a range of folding, sliding and swing door systems. Its products allow designers to blur the division between indoor and outdoor, transforming and creating open living and entertaining spaces.
“The world has adopted an indoor-outdoor lifestyle and the design solutions created by the architects and designers using LaCantina products keeps getting more innovative,” states Lee Maughan, vice president and general manager of LaCantina. “We’re excited to see what the competition will look like this year and to provide a platform that recognizes their projects.”
