Our Top 5 Takeaways from NeoCon

We share our top 5 trends from visiting the 51st Annual NeoCon at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.

  1. Zen Flooring

Bringing a sense of peace and calm into high traffic areas, the focus on calming flooring was seen throughout the show.

The Relaxing Floor Collection by Mohawk translates stress-reducing fractals into calming patterns for the built environment.

Look Both Ways Collection from Interface gives us a sense of inner peace and the patterns mimic that of a Zen Garden.

 

2. Privacy in an open workspace

With open concept workspaces as the new normal, emphasis in finding privacy is on the rise. Semi transparent screens, upgraded “cubicles”, and an increase in meeting rooms were a trend throughout the show.

 

3. Acoustics as Art

 

4. Bringing the Outside In

 

5. Textured Textiles
