Steelcase family of brands and partners @NeoCon 2019
This year at NeoCon, the annual commercial design conference in Chicago, the Steelcase family of brands and partners showcase a new way of thinking about space that gives more control to teams and individuals. “We’re at a tipping point,” says Cherie Johnson, Steelcase Global Design Director. “The workplace is no longer just about giving people access to different kinds of spaces. It’s about giving them control and the ability to adapt the spaces where they work everyday.”
Steelcase® Flex Collection won Gold in Best of NeoCon for Furniture Collections for Collaboration. Steelcase Flex is an integrated collection of furniture and accessories designed to meet the needs of modern teams and their changing activities. It delivers the right amount of control to individuals and teams, letting people reconfigure their spaces in a matter of minutes. 🥇🥇🥇
Steelcase Flex Collection formed by movable desks, tables, whiteboards, cards, space dividers and accesories, can be rearranged on-demand by anyone to create environments for teams and individuals to do their best work.
Steelcase® Roam™ for the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S won Best of NeoCon Gold in the Technology-Integrated Solutions category and was an Honoree in the HiP Awards Technology category. Specifically co-designed for the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S, the Steelcase Roam Mobile Stand and easy-to-hang wall mounts enable teams to collaborate anywhere. Powered by APC™ Charge battery, Surface Hub 2S and Steelcase Roam let you collaborate in planned sessions or spontaneously, whenever good ideas strike. Easily moved with one hand, Steelcase Roam’s small footprint allows it to fit in various spaces. Used for remote collaboration, your distant teammates can move around with you and participate more fully in discussions.
In the WorkCafé area set up at NeoCon, a more informal, relaxed space supported by Steelcase and their family of brands and partners was exclusively exposing novelties from West Elm. The range of products included inviting, hardworking collections such as the co-created West Elm Work Collection and smaller scale artisan goods that let designers shape a culture and brand in both big and small ways throughout a space, for example the Belle seating system.
Also, this year at NeoCon, Steelcase announced a new relationship with Moooi and Moooi Carpets. The Dutch company founded in 2001 offers a unique and iconic mix of lighting, furniture and accessories. Decorated with an inspiring variety of patterns and colors, Moooi embraces any kind of space with fresh, innovative designs.
“This honor really belongs to our teams and their creative work to design products that truly allow people to collaborate in new ways. We’re excited to help others come together in flexible spaces at work,” said Jim Keane, Steelcase president and CEO, regarding the awards that were given to Steelcase for this year edition of NeoCon.
