NeoCon 2011 a Hit.

Today, we’ve got another post brought to you by Sevan.

Over the last few days, we’ve been busy taking in everything from giant, cozy lounge chairs to futuristic movable desks – products that can put your favorite comforter to shame or completely redefine the office environment. NeoCon 2011 kicked off on Monday in The Merchandise Mart of Chicago, infamous for its elevator jams but loved nonetheless for being the place to discover the latest in innovative commercial interior design.

We loved it at ICFF and we’re loving it once again. One of our favorites at the convention came from Tools at Schools. The new collection of colorful desks and lockers is brilliant in its clean simplicity and is the result of a collaborative project between Bernhardt Design, Aruliden, and eight graders at the School at Columbia University. We also loved InterfaceFLOR’s new carpeting line made using recycled fishing nets – part of their new sustainable product initiative that promises to use 100 percent non-virgin materials. And we couldn’t help wanting to refurnish our office with a few of KI’s curvaceous new Itoki chairs that really take advantage of the subtle power of good aesthetic.

As if all this design wasn’t enough to get us excited, we were more than happy about the abundance of cheese-and-wine receptions and cooking demonstrations that kept our stomachs from rumbling as we walked every square foot of the showrooms. Glimmering glass, bright textiles, luscious woods… three days was definitely not enough! We’re already looking forward to 2012.

The workspace doesn’t have to be boring thanks to Stylex’s new Sava line of colorful and comfortable office chairs.
