Multiple new workplace products from Teknion Corporation’s Teknion, Studio TK and Luum Textiles collections received prestigious recognition at NeoCon 2017, held June 12 to 14 at The Mart in Chicago.
Three of the awards presented to Teknion were Best of NeoCon awards. The Altos Landscape wall collection and its height-adjustable Altos Desk won Gold in the Architectural Products category. Altos Landscape is a horizontal wall collection with wall-integrated furniture that provides layered-off module planning applications to maximize space and minimize cost. The Altos Desk, a key feature of the collection, is the first height-adjustable desk that is integrated into a standard four-inch-thick wall.
Expansion Cityline was awarded Best of NeoCon Silver in the Furniture Systems category. Featuring a unique beam framework and wide selection of accessories, Expansion Cityline creates connected workstations, collaborative spaces and mixed-use areas.
The Zones furniture collection, designed by PearsonLloyd in conjunction with Teknion, was introduced as an alternative to a traditional office setup at NeoCon 2016, where it earned multiple awards, including Best of Competition. Several new pieces have been added to the Zones collection this year. At this year’s awards, Zones won Best of NeoCon Silver in the Office Accessories category for new easels, storage carts, food trolley and accessories.
