Herman Miller, Inc. built on the momentum of its Living Office launch and unveiled new tools, information, and dynamic new furniture designs to help organizations address the new landscape of work at NeoCon 2014. Living Office, the company’s holistic approach to creating more natural, efficient, and desirable workplaces, is a culmination of research on how people actually do work. This year Herman Miller demonstrated the concept by creating a real Living Office designed to meet the needs of its own Chicago-based employees. The Herman Miller Showroom and its execution of a Living Office earned distinction by the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and Contract magazine’s Showroom and Booth Design Competition as the best large showroom for the second consecutive year.

The annual Best of NeoCon awards for product are judged by interior design and facility management professionals who review more than 400 entries this year. Herman Miller Healthcare continues to be recognized as a leader in healing spaces and furniture as Nemschoff’s Palisades earned the Silver Award for the Healthcare Furniture category. This marked the fifth consecutive year Herman Miller Healthcare has received an award.

The Best of NeoCon awards, now in their 25th year, are sponsored and organized by Contract magazine, Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc., IIDA, The International Facility Management Association, and the McMorrow Report.
