What's new at NeoCon

To celebrate NeoCon 2014, the Andreu World showroom presented the newest furniture solutions and displayed the ever growing catalog of seating and tables for corporate, hospitality, residential and outdoor applications.  The new pieces were created by internationally renowned designers such as Patricia Urquiola, Jasper Morrison, Lievore Altherr Molina and Piergiorgio Cazzaniga.   


The permanent Andreu World showroom in the Merchandise Mart was converted into a space full of color, texture and pieces that convey the essence and quality of the Andreu World products.   Through large backlit images, visitors delved into the different environments and atmospheres created utilizing the exhibited furniture pieces.


Andreu World was honored three Best of NeoCon awards for new collections presented at this year’s NeoCon tradeshow which ran June 9th through the 11th in Chicago.  


NeoCon is the most important trade fair for the interior design and furniture industry in the United States.  The annual events attracts over 40,000 visitors and 700 exhibitors to the Merchandise Mart, where Andreu World has a permanent showroom.  


The Flex Corporate seating collection, designed by Piergiogrio Cazzaniga, received the Gold Award for best seating in the Conference Seating category.  The Flex Corporate was designed for prolonged use in public spaces and it was recognized by the jury for its excellent ergonomics, innovation and comfort.  The jury was comprised of 45 member companies from the sector as well as representatives of government institutions, interior designers, architects and specifiers responsible for the selection and purchase of furniture.     

 

The other Andreu World Gold Award recipient was the Raglan sofa in the Sofas and Lounge category.  The modular Raglan sofa was created for collaboration areas and is suitable for corporate, public and private applications.
