Benjamin Moore will honor six architecture and design firms with its 2010 HUE Awards.

For the first time, the HUE Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to an interior design firm rather than an individual. The award will recognize Diamond Baratta Design, of New York, and its principals William Diamond and Anthony Baratta.

Also due to receive the colorful HUE glass sculpture and $5,000 cash prize are Ghislaine Viñas Interior Design of New York, for Residential Interiors; Envision Design of Washington D.C., for Contract Interiors; Amy Wax of Montclair, N.J., for Residential Exteriors; and Allen + Philp Architects/Interiors of Scottsdale, Ariz., for Contract Exteriors.

A HUE Special Achievement Award will go to Eikona Studios, of Cleveland, Ohio, “for its unique dedication to the restoration and preservation of mural art and masterpieces that grace the walls and domes of American churches, cathedrals and houses of worship,” Benjamin Moore said.

The winners were chosen from nearly 150 entries. This year’s HUE judges included Thomas R. Krizmanic, AIA, LEED AP, a principal of STUDIOS Architecture, which was a 2008 HUE honoree; Reed Kroloff, director, Cranbrook Academy of Art and Art Museum; Mayer Rus, design and culture editor of The Los Angeles Times Magazine; Essie Weingarten, founder and president of Essie Cosmetics, Ltd.; and Tim Wisgerhof, former creative director of Saks Fifth Avenue and now head of his own firm, TwoSeven Inc.

In casting their votes for Diamond Baratta, the HUE judges noted that the New York City-based interior designers are risk takers who have made color usage an unmistakable and defining signature of their work.

“Few push the envelope on using color as courageously, imaginatively and effectively as William Diamond and Anthony Baratta of Diamond Baratta Design,” Benjamin Moore said in a statement. “Their work is non-conformist and diverse in style but informed by their deep knowledge of and appreciation for past eras of architecture, design, fashion and culture. They are brilliant at reinterpreting historical and classical looks, and very often it is via use of color—an unexpected contrast or untried pairing of hues—that they succeed in creating the spin.”

The awards will be presented May 5 in a ceremony at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.

“Benjamin Moore is proud to present HUE to another group of immensely talented and visionary architects and interior designers who have clearly demonstrated their understanding of the power, impact, emotion and vitality that color brings to our world,” said Eileen McComb, director of corporate communications for Benjamin Moore. “We applaud these design professionals and their exemplary achievements.”
