At NeoCon 2013, the global leader in contract furnishings unveiled a range of seating and occasional tables as well as two textile collections, including:

The Asa series

Designer Todd Bracher brings a European sense of scale and style to the design of the Asa series. The modern collection of lounge chairs and occasional tables is inspired by the ‘s’ shape found in the natural posture of the human body, and is created to provide maximum comfort and performance in an efficient, compact package. Light in weight and scale, Asa’s design language supports flexibility within the workspace.

The series was honoured with the ‘Best of NeoCon Gold Award’ for 2013.


November series

The November series

Created by noted Barcelona-based designer Mario Ruiz, the November series of seating and occasional tables takes inspiration from the North American office design of the 1950s and ‘60s.

The series pays tribute to modernist antecedents in form, function and materials. It is designed for comfort and flexibility and features spacious proportions, tailored upholstery and a unifying chamfer detail.


Flakes series

The Flakes series

Conceived by award-winning Danish designer Lars Vejen, the classic yet modern Flakes lounge and table collection is a perfect combination of beauty and comfort. The strong, yet soft and inviting curves of the chair offer support for relaxed and working postures, while the contrasting stitch detail lends a touch of casual elegance. Together, the lightweight and artful chair and coffee table exude a modern aesthetic and support flexibility in the workplace.


Flight series

The Flight series

Designed by Carmen and Urs Greutmann Bolzern, the Flight series is the perfect synthesis of comfort, ergonomics, design and sustainability, making it the ideal solution for the office, conference or collaborative environment.

Flight is a complete family of seating ranging from a guest pull-up chair to a low and mid back management chair and a high back executive chair. It also comes with an upholstered insert back option.


Present Perfect

Textile Collection – Present Perfect

Designed by Barbara Barry, Present Perfect draws inspiration from the glamour of the 1940s and ‘50s, translating this classic influence into a rich and dimensional assemblage of materials for the contract market. The collection is available in 50 sophisticated colourways and in nine signature Barry palettes, and comes in six textural fabrics and one luxurious leather option.


Summer 2013

Textile Collection – Summer 2013

Conceived by well-known designer Mary Jo Miller, the Bumpy and Smooth textile series combine a dimensional, hard-wearing, post-consumer recycled texture with an extremely smooth, bleach cleanable, non-PVC coated fabric material. Available in a combined 38 saturated hues.
