Chicago, Ill. -- This June 13-15, NeoCon, the premier contract design exposition and conference, will once again deliver multiple floors of innovative new product solutions and concepts from the industry's leading brands. In addition to the three full floors of year-round showrooms, The Mart will play host to nearly 300 brands in its newly redesigned 7th  Floor Exhibit Hall. Designed to provide a comprehensive, easy-to-navigate experience, the dynamic space showcases the best products and services by category, all on one floor. Feature areas include: Interior Building Products/Materials & Finishes, Furniture & Fabrics, Flooring, and Technology.

Julie Kohl, vice president of NeoCon exhibitor sales, remarks, “The Mart is a year-round showcase of the best brands in commercial interiors. When you add our highly focused 7th Floor Exhibit Hall to the equation, which features a rich, all-encompassing selection of cutting-edge products, it’s easy to understand why NeoCon has become the must-attend event for the industry. The 7th floor exhibitors are unveiling forward-thinking solutions to cover every aspect of the built environment.”

Visitors to the 7th Floor Exhibit Hall will discover exciting introductions throughout the thoughtfully planned out space. The floor plan will offer displays of new products in a format that also respects the tactical way that the A&D community specifies products. Highlights include:

Barbican Architectural (7-3008B) is introducing three new products at the show, including The Wave. Engineered as a modular, reconfigurable and stand-alone high-performance LED lighting system, Wave utilizes the most advanced Green Energy technology. Available in individual modules, the Wave product line offers a multitude of sizes and proportions to meet the demands of any specification.

Waldmann Lighting (7-3004) will launch the new PARA.MI light at NeoCon. What makes PARA.MI unique is that it allows users to combine individual elements and colors to construct their own desktop luminaire, however they envision it. Users can choose from a round or square luminaire head, adjustable single or double arm, round or square base, and various connection possibilities for furniture, combined with high-quality surfaces in black, white, silver, red or custom colors.

Sensitile Systems (7-2022) is introducing its new, customizable Celeste glass canvas. Because it is backlit, it generates a warm, tranquil ambience. The panel material can be used for signage, feature walls, countertops, inserts, partitions, light fixtures, and more.

SixInch North America (7- 7068) introduces a new group of upholstered lounge pieces that blend its signature flair for designing playful sculpture-like furniture that isn’t just fun to look at, but also comfortable to use. Three new upholstered styles will debut: Simplon, designed by Rainer Mutsch; Viktr and Cubik, designed by SixInch North America’s own in-house design team.  The Viktr, Cubik and Simplon all love to play with color-blocking and can be specified as lounge chair, settee, sofa, three sizes of bench, as well as a connected version that seats up to three.

Loftwall Divider Solutions’ (7-6046) new BLOX system components are modular and can be placed anywhere in an interior environment and moved around as needed. BLOX is offered in twelve tackable fabrics, ranging from elegant neutrals to bold brights, that are made with a premium wool felt finish. These soft, textured textiles absorb VOC pollutants. Made from 75 percent recycled content, the matte anodized frame is easy to set up and reconfigure. Both the frame and panels can be recycled.

2020 (7-4122) is releasing the 2016 version of 2020 Cap, 2020 Giza, 2020 Worksheet, and 2020 Visual Impression in time for NeoCon 2016. New features in the 2016 release continue to build on the strong existing core of features to further simplify the dealer sales process. 2020 Cap has been updated to support the industry standard AutoCAD 2017. Based on feedback from the field, designers will now be able to organize large projects by incorporating color into their specifications. In addition, 2020 Giza increases the ability to communicate with the A&D Community by using new AutoCAD Import capabilities. 2020 continues to add manufacturer content to the largest collection of office furniture content in the industry.
