ITASCA, IL – Fellowes, a large workplace solutions provider, has won GOOD DESIGN Awards for its Rising Loft Rail System and Rising Monitor Arms. The latter also received a 2024 iF Design Award in the Office category, a competition which saw 11,000 entries from 72 countries. 

The GOOD DESIGN competition also spanned the globe. Rising Monitor Arm captured the jury's attention with its core features, such as 16 configurations, ease of adjustability, breadth of colorways, and options for branding graphics, the company noted. It also introduces two new technologies from Fellowes in SnapKinect™ for simple and streamlined assembly and RotationStop™, which allows the monitor arm to swing and adjust between 14 distinct stopping points. 

Fellowes' Rising Loft Rail System "stood out as a system that optimizes workspace productivity and user comfort. Through extensive research, the Fellowes Industrial Design team developed a customizable rail system that empowers employees with the flexibility to arrange equipment, accessories, and personal items to match their unique work styles and needs," the company noted.

Key features of the Rising Loft include: increased productivity by providing easy access to essential tools and promotes a clutter-free workspace; a streamlined design, featuring a sleek glass façade with an integrated marker board, power solutions, and cord management; a high level of configurability, with offerings in multiple colors and lengths, along with various add-on equipment and accessories for personalization; and Rising Monitor Arm compatibility.

Headquartered in Itasca, Illinois, Fellowes operates from 25 locations across the globe. The fourth-generation family-owned contract furniture provider is ranked  #89 in the 2024 FDMC 300, an annual listing of the largest wood products manufacturers in North America.
