Every year in June the contract furniture industry gather to introduce new product ideas. Neocon, Chicago has always been our platform for major corporate and product new announcements. Please scroll to view recent news.
JUNE 10, 2019 – NATURAL STONE BLADE BASE + MOBILE CREDENZA, PARSONS, RIBBON TABLES + 2PUCK COLLABORATIVE END TABLES
Exhibited during NEOCON 2019, the ability to mix materials and have a Painted Back Glass tabletop combine with a Natural Stone Blade table base on a large 180”x72”W Oval Conference table was the centerpiece in this years showroom. The Guilded Collection of “metal” acrylic colors continued to expand with two new colors displayed on the showroom center walls, the Oval table and on a front credenza. This year all Guilded colors were in a high gloss finish. Mobility was another theme this year as the low rise caster option was added to several collaborative elements including a cushion-top credenza, a Parsons community table and a pair of half-wedge reconfigurable Ribbon lounge height casual meeting tables. A new, veneer collaborative end table – 2Puck – was introduced with high gloss inlay side panels and optional power/USB charging unit included. A new Flatiron base footrail option was displayed on a 48”Dx42”H casual meeting table.
June 11, 2018 - NEW ACRYLIC PAINT "METAL" COLORS + SPIRE + NEW HEIGHTS FOR BROOKLYN COMMUNITY TABLES
Introduced during NEOCON 2018, four new acrylic paint choices add to our already extensive finish portfolio. The Gilded Collection colors – Rose Gold, Copper, Citrine and Obsidian – were developed to provide unique "metal" colors for all table bases and Vidro Painted Back Glass tabletops as an alternative to wet, environmentally damaging, plated finishes. The new Spire table base provides a clean, tapered cylinder visual for tables of all sizes. The Brooklyn community table was featured at the new height of 46". This height evolved from the developing interest in "perching"/"leaning" for casual, standing meetings where traditional heights of 36" and 42" are too low and needs seem to indicate a higher tabletop surface level requirement. Brooklyn has full height flexibility, any increment from 16"H – 48"H.
June 12, 2017 - New Flatiron + Asteri Training Tables + Next Gen Vidroart
Introduced during NEOCON 2017, two new stainless steel base options greatly expand the choices for management level training rooms. Flatiron training tables offer a unique four base, tapered triangular profile with integral wire management. Asteri training tables offer a more traditional, low-to-floor T-base profile. In addition, Flatiron was displayed with a new three base version for small, round café tables, a four base version on a 60”D lounge height (26”H) table for casual collaborative spaces and a new elevated base option for all cabinets and credenzas. VidroArt was re-introduced offering a cured UV ink printing process for any image reproduction under small sized painted back glass tabletops.
June 13, 2016 - New Flatiron Base + Arcade Community Table
Introduced during NEOCON 2016, the Flatiron base series offers a tapered, triangular stainless steel profile with integral wire management for tables of all shapes and sizes. Available in polished, brushed, veneer clad and colora coating finish – the sleek, contemporary aesthetic and internal wiring channel of Flatiron sets it apart from all other angled table bases. Arcade is a collaborative work center, a combination of elements to address the need for team gatherings in open spaces and small meeting rooms. NEOCON featured an all veneer configuration of Arcade with 3” thick panel based elements including TV wall, tabletop power and base support. Other tabletop materials like painted back glass, laminate, stone and solid surface with additional base profiles and tops in 1”-2” thicknesses will be introduced shortly as the options for Arcade expand to maximize user choices.
June 15, 2015 - New PortaXL Mobile Conference + Ribbon Bases
Introduced at NEOCON 2015, the “XL” series of conference table bases incorporate a new air cylinder fliptop mechanism designed to allow for up to 54”x96” tabletop section sizes thus providing minimal seams for large tables in the mobile conference table category. At NEOCON the PortaXL base was featured. The new Ribbon base was displayed with a striking Calcatta Gold marble tabletop to reflect the ultimate contemporary conference table with power units concealed in a full perimeter, under-top IT apron. The 42”H Brooklyn community table introduced a painted back glass top option featuring our new color, Marine blue.
June 09, 2014 - Introducing Orbit + Porta Table Bases
Featured during NEOCON 2014, the understated ORBIT base offers a new, tapered aesthetic for large diameter round tables – finally a contemporary alternative to the basic drum bases of the past. The PORTA base affords maximum concealed in-feed space in a new stainless steel “T” profile with removable side panels. These panels are available in a choice of polished, brushed, painted/colora and veneer (inlay) finish. ELLA presents the classic trumpet base profile option for small café table applications. PARSONS 42”H community tables provide users the ultimate casual meeting space table with the option of a painted back glass writeable tabletop surface. DropBox-Neocon2014
