Rewind of NeoCon 2012
June 18, 2012
While it may take a few days to recover from the excitement and action-packed NeoCon, it’s all worth it. Tromping around the Merchandise Mart and one will come across an incredible scene of fresh, innovative, and eye-catching furniture, textiles, and more. Here’s a brief run through of the highlights from our experience.
Weren’t the Alexander Girard textiles beautiful? The pop of color, texture, and the story behind the designer really made for a great reintroduction at NeoCon. Viewing the Herman Miller Collection was a must in the showroom as there was lots to see, touch, feel and relax on. With plenty to explore, Herman Miller also had stations setup for people to join the conversation with the Community Pulse, which was used to survey individuals and provide instant infographic results. Check it out here. Congratulations to Herman Miller, Herman Miller Healthcare and Geiger for their wonderful showrooms and for taking home seven Best of NeoCon Awards!
All around, it was a beautiful showroom and they had beautiful products (ok, and superb flower arrangements). The Tre Stool caught a lot of attention with it’s functionality and form, and the uniqueness of Perch made for an eye-catching and “I gotta try that!” reaction.
We were able to explore their wide array of product that is suitable to meet any needs. From chairs to workstations, we sat in a variety and while taking it all in we were able to rest our feet ever so comfortably.
The color palette of the showroom was popping with the combination of orange, blue and white. If you stopped into Jofco, then you noticed many pieces from the Collective and Ziva collections. Collective is here in our showroom and it provides a nice collaborative seating area. Ziva addresses the needs of an open environment with multiple configurations and mobile and electrical capabilities.
Nucraft impressed us with their award-winning products: Passport Solo, Passport Duo, Reveal, and Emme. Sleek and sophisticated, this collection integrates technology and purposeful applications to each functional piece it creates.
Once again, DIRTT awes us with their reconfigurable solutions for any environment. Their Chicago Chic theme came to life when you toured their penthouse showroom complete with a stunning view of Chicago. On display was a high-class residential setting, a “chapel” with geometric influences, the Peek-a-Boo wall and table, and new technological touches to the healthcare side. The creme brulee oatmeal was a nice touch for the early morning tour, too.
