Herman Miller Garners Multiple Awards at NeoCon 2010
June 14, 2010
Herman Miller, Inc., is celebrating multiple honors this week at the NeoCon 2010 World's Trade Fair in Chicago, June 14-16. NeoCon is North America's largest exhibition of contract furnishings for the design and management of the built environment. The annual gathering of design professionals, corporate end users, and furniture dealers recognized the company in three separate awards programs, including showrooms, new product introductions, and manufacturers' reputations among independent furniture dealers.
The annual Best of NeoCon awards for product, juried by interior design and facility management professionals who reviewed 337 entries, recognized Herman Miller Healthcare's Compass system with a Gold award in the Healthcare Furniture category and Herman Miller's Flo monitor arm with a Silver award in the Technology Support category.
The Best of NeoCon awards, now in their 21st year, are sponsored and organized by the International Interior Design Association, the International Facility Management Association, Contract magazine, the McMorrow Report, and Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc.
The new Herman Miller Healthcare showroom also was named Large Showroom Winner in the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Showroom and Booth Design Competition. The award honors originality of design, visual impact, effective use of materials, and the outstanding use of space, color, texture, lighting, and graphics.
In addition to product accolades, Herman Miller also received the "2010 Manufacturer of the Year Gold Award," presented by the Office Furniture Dealers Alliance (OFDA). The industry association for independent U.S. and Canadian office furniture dealers annually surveys its membership for their opinions on industry manufacturers. The awards are then presented in conjunction with the NeoCon gathering. This is the fourth time in five years that Herman Miller has received the top prize among major manufacturers.
