Intereum and Herman Hiller partnered to bring a Healthcare experience to MinneCon – a Trade Show that IIDA Northland organizes yearly. This year’s event took place in July at the fully-renovated Milwaukee Road Depot which re-opened its doors and added to the revitalization of Minneapolis’ Riverfront District. The Trade Show hosted four CEU sessions: Power to Thrive Panel Discussion, Alternative Approach to Design, Communicating Across Generations and Design for Integrated Work.
Promoted at MinneCon was a grassroots beneficial reuse program: ZeroLandfill Twin Cities. They collect unwanted and discontinued samples and building materials from Dealers and Manufacturers and put them into hands of local artists, artisans, arts educators, and school teachers where they find new life as studio materials and classroom supplies – instead of ending up in a landfill or an incinerator.
Intereum and Herman Miller’s booth highlighted the new Compass system from Herman Miller Healthcare. This system earned the Best of NeoCon® Gold Award in the Healthcare Furnishings category at NeoCon in Chicago earlier this year. There was also a patient infusion station with a Nemschoff thermal chair surrounded by Herman Miller’s Resolve product which utilized 3Form to create a private and soothing patient environment. A resilient wood-look sheet flooring by Parterre – a sustainable manufacturer specifically used in Healthcare facilities – was chosen for this display.
Intereum’s showroom in Plymouth, MN will soon host a much-anticipated display of Compass in the Healthcare section of the facility.
