Neocon 2018 Favorites
We packed our bags and headed out to Chicago for Neocon 2018, recently. We saw incredible new office furniture designs that will bring form, function, and fun to the office. We saw a multitude of colors and textures in textiles, acoustic panels, and flooring. But, before we showcase some of our favorites, do you know what Neocon is? Attended by 50,000 office design professionals and held every June at The Mart in Chicago since 1969, NeoCon serves as the commercial design industry’s launch pad for innovation—offering ideas and introductions that shape the built environment today and into the future. It’s easy to get lost in all the innovation, but we kept our focus and found some amazing designs.

2019 Trends to watch for in office design:
- Green is what’s happening through Biophilic Design. Offices are going green in new and innovative ways. Plants are adding interest, boosting moods and adding oxygen to the office space.
- Standing is the new sitting. You’ve all most certainly heard that sitting is killing us. Well, manufacturers have really stepped up their design game to deliver. Standing desks are integrated into workstations so seamlessly that it’s almost a standard feature (not quite, but almost). The flexibility this allows for your employees is huge and only adds to your appeal as a top-notch employer.
- Mixed-use workspaces. Everyone seems to have listened to end users that were not so impressed with the open office. We are now seeing clever mixes of both private and public spaces to appeal to how your employees prefer to work and thus boosting their productivity in the process.
Take a look at some of our favorite designs from the show and let us know how we can help introduce some innovation into your office space.
