Erin Ruby, CID, IIDA/ Founder of Erin Ruby Design, LLC
Erin founded her practice on the premise that built environments should be viewed holistically; that the contents of a space are an extension of their context. With an extensive background designing commercial interiors, her expertise has expanded into product design and resulted in award winning collaborations with manufacturers of contract furnishings and textiles.
After graduating from Virginia Tech in 2000, Erin began her career at TVS Design where she worked on multiple commercial and corporate projects including the Interface Americas showroom, which was the first project ever awarded LEED CI Platinum certification. Shortly after joining TVS she had her first foray into product development with the 'stitch' collection for HBF Textiles, which received a Best of Neocon Gold Award in 2003.
In 2008, Erin joined STUDIOS Architecture and quickly rose to Associate Principal, leading design on high profile projects for Dow Jones, IMG Worldwide, and The Johnson Company. Her collaboration with Halcon on a fully scalable furniture collection was recognized with a Best of Neocon Silver Award in 2014.
