World Market Center Las Vegas honored Roger Thomas of Wynn Design and Development as a Design Icon during the Winter 2009 Las Vegas Market.
Thomas created the interiors of Wynn Las Vegas and most recently led the interior design of Wynn Macau, which opened to the public September 5, 2006. Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, opened on December 22, 2008, along with Wynn Diamond Macau, which will open January 2010, also bear his stamp. Thomas designed the interiors of properties including the Golden Nugget hotels in Las Vegas and Laughlin and the Mirage Resort, Treasure Island and Bellagio Resort on the Las Vegas strip.
Honors are nothing new to the noted design legend, whose career spans nearly 40 years. (He started his career as an apprentice designer while still in his teens.) Elected to the Hospitality Design Platinum Circle in 2005, Thomas received a Lifetime Achievement award from the Network of Executive Women in Hospitality. In 2007, Thomas was listed in Architectural Digests AD 100.
