Modern Office has returned from the NeoCon 2012 convention in Chicago. We’re re-energized with new ideas and perspectives after viewing and experiencing the latest developments in the ever-changing world of office furniture.
We examined many new products including office chairs, desks, and reception furniture that we will add to our online store in the near future. We’re very excited about the function, design, and pricing of these items.
The theme of the convention this year was “Think Big”, and NeoCon was big a usual with 40,000 attendees, over 700 showrooms and exhibitors, and 120 seminars.
Some of the key concepts and trends that were woven throughout many of the exhibits included interactive space, sustainability, personalization of work space, collaboration areas, encouragement of movement, eco-friendliness, and reconfiguration. The color trend was saturated hues in bold contrast with a broad range of grays, exotic woods in organic natural finishes, and gray walnuts.
We will report on how some of these trends relate to the office furniture we offer in future posts.
