CROSSVILLE, TN -- Crossville’s "Bluestone" and "Mixology" tile collections have been named winners of 2012 Green Good Design Awards bestowed by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. The annual awards recognize 120 products from across the globe that are leading examples of sustainable design.

The European Center’s International Advisory Committee selects products based on design processes that emphasize overall environmental responsibility. The GOOD DESIGN awards date to 1950; this is the fourth year for the sustainable design award category.

"Bluestone" is a popular porcelain tile collection manufactured at Crossville’s U.S. manufacturing facilities through processes certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS). The line holds Green Squared certification and contains a minimum of 20% recycled content. "Mixology," designed by Mikeal Jensen, Residential Design Director for Crossville, replicates cast metal with 50% SCS-certified, post-consumer recycled content.

Jury members of The European Center’s International Advisory Committee are design industry leaders from across the globe who review products, programs, people, government, environmental planning and architecture to determine the outstanding achievers. The European Centre and Chicago Athenaeum’s environmental conference will exhibit the 2012 Green Good Design products throughout the U.S. for a year, beginning at the University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana in September 2012.
