2013 NEOCON Report – take a virtual tour
NEOCON had renewed vitality. Showrooms were packed with people from all over the world as easily seen by the wide array of fashion and easily heard by the multitude of languages spoken. Our one-day, first day the show overview left us with the following impressions:
•Geometry continues to stream line itself
•Cubes are gone and replaced with benching and sit-to-stand desks
•Private offices are for doing work, the ‘ego’ in office shows how work is done with technology ruling the way
•Collaboration is seen in seating: casual and mobile
•Privacy has new forms: telephone cones and sound absorbing chairs
•Stools for sit-to-stands are emerging, but need to be tested for stability
•Conference tables take new forms: large and without technology and contained and with technology
•Traditional furniture is almost gone (this is indeed refreshing)
•White is the predominant work surface color
•Carpet tiles come in new shapes and sizes
•Color is solid & bold and patterns are somewhat retro when used
•Technology tile walls (and projection directly on walls) replaces screens/monitors
•Computer accessories rule as multi-screen applications are more prevalent
