Instyle showoff their latest product range at this year’s NeoCon and tell us about one of the trends shaping furniture design.
August 20th, 2013
One of the major themes presented at Neocon – North America’s largest design exhibition for commercial interiors – involved the topic of trending open-plan workspaces. While allowing more space and adaptability, this growing mode according to Instyle has brought forth issues of privacy in the workspace.
Neocon was the place to exhibit creative solutions where there were numerous designs focused primarily on providing micro-retreats, enclosed refuges for closer communications and acoustically sound chairs that zone out white noise for those secluded meetings.
NeoCon featured numerous furniture products designed to enhance privacy that open-plan spaces seem to forego. Many furniture items consisted of materials such as sound-absorbing felts and wall finishes as well as waiting room chairs with adjustable felt hoods and booths with felt and padded walls.
On display at the joint Unika Vaev (Instyle’s American distributor), ICF and Nienkamper showroom were Instyle’s highly successful marle felt and textured fabrics, Feel, Feel Stripe and Chunky, and wall finishes including the ecoustic collection.
Earlier this year, Unika Vaev announced that it would adopt most of Instyle’s product range. This achievement for Instyle ensures they are the first Australian textile company to be represented in the United States by an independent distributor.
With Instyle at Neocon and now in the United States, the textile company continue to show their quality.
