NEW YORK -- The International Interior Design Association New York Chapter, (IIDA NY) has announced the appointment of Steven South, IIDA, LEED AP as chapter president. IIDA NY has been recognized as the IIDA Large Chapter of the Year for its continued effort to serve and deliver benefits and professional growth for its members, both professional and students. 

South was appointed president elect in December 2012 and became president in June 2013. South is succeeding Hans Galutera, co-founder and principal of BG Studio International. “Mr. South was chosen because of his dedication to the organization and his drive for expansion,” says Galutera. “He is extremely passionate about the organization and we are excited to have him as our president.”

As a five-year IIDA NY member, South was already working as a senior interior design associate for Perkins+Will when he joined the organization. Throughout his career, South has executed projects on a local, national, and global scale and is currently working on projects with The New York Police Academy, Haworth Showrooms in Houston and New York, and Long Island University. South has also just begun teaching the Final Healthcare Design Studio at New York School of Interior Design. The course is part of the Master of Professional Studies in Healthcare Interiors, the only program in the US dedicated to this subject. “I saw IIDA as a way to give back to my profession and engage in other ways outside of work,” says South. “IIDA is a design-focused professional organization and I wanted to connect to like minded people.” 

Each year, the New York chapter president is tasked with creating a theme. This year it’s "#Creativestew." 

“The idea is to bring the power of design to transform, connect, and elevate,” says South. “Through outreach to different segments of the IIDA NY community, we will expand our presence within the State of New York.”  Under South’s leadership, the IIDA NY Chapter will focus on growing our city centers creating campus centers in Upstate New York, and increasing exposure with educators and students. In addition to the #Creativestew theme, South is focusing on the creation of more satellite headquarters throughout New York that will report to the main IIDA NY Chapter. These city centers will allow IIDA NY to reach out to more interior designers and expand the network.
