Our Furniture & Interior Design team just got back from NeoCon 2017, the premier global platform for connecting, learning, and conducting business in commercial interiors. The event draws more than 50,000 design professionals from all over the globe to theMART in Chicago. The show, which spotlights thousands of new products every year, was both knowledgeable and entertaining.

 

Check out some photos from our adventures at theMART below!

First stop. Teknion.

 

Teknion, Zones Modular Seating

The signature Open Serpentine Planning capability of the Modular Seating is enhanced by mixing high-, low- or no-back units, plus varying their direction and material finishes. Each unit connects different activities within a single footprint. Endless combinations exist to blend with other products. There are many possibilities for impromptu collaboration and reflection in perimeter planning applications as well.

Teknion, Zones Workshop Settings

Zones Workshop Settings build upon the concept of Enclosures and Lounge Settings by extending the available footprint and scale to accommodate larger group meetings, project work or conferencing. Like Lounge screens, Workshop screens are shaped in various ways to create a myriad of possibilities for floor planning.

Teknion, Zones Lounge Settings

Zones expands upon the award-winning collection that was first featured at NeoCon 2016. New furniture pieces have been added to the offering to enable whole new planning paradigms. Zones Screens create unobtrusive, aesthetically pleasing barriers that define space and allow to create for various working environments. Lounge screens are instrumental at enclosing areas best suitable for more casual, relaxed gatherings, individual or focused work.

Teknion, Zones System Integration

New Zones-inspired elements, such as curved timber legs and Desk Edge Screens, seamlessly integrate with District and upStage systems to soften the lines and help enhance the individual’s tactile experience. These new organic design elements create fluid, inviting furniture shapes and help to engage workstation users in a state of comfort while ensuring complete systems functionality.

Studio TK, Kuskoa & Kuskoa Bi 

Kuskoa is rethinking the role of form and materiality in the new workplace. From large cafes to small collaboration zones, the chair, counter-height and bar-height stools offer versatile elegance to pair with a range of table types. Kuskoa Bi is a statement piece you can sit on. This unique bioplastic design is derived from plant-based renewable resources.
