June 13, 2016

CHICAGO - KI is honored to have earned a number of prestigious awards at the NeoCon World's Trade Fair 2016. KI received a Gold Award for its newest innovative lounge collection, MyPlace™, in the Healthcare: Guest/Lounge Seating category at the 27th annual Best of NeoCon® competition, presented by Contract magazine. Products are chosen based on design excellence and innovation.

KI is also proud to announce that was named the winner of the International Interior Design Association's 21st annual IIDA/Contract Magazine Showroom and Booth Design Competition. KI's showroom was recognized as the winner in the Large Showroom category. This competition honors originality of design, visual impact, effective use of materials, and the outstanding use of space, color, texture, lighting and graphics at NeoCon.

"KI is incredibly honored to be recognized with the prestigious Best of NeoCon Award as well as the IIDA/Contract Magazine Showroom Award," said Shawn Green, vice president of design and product marketing, KI. "Good design is not about products. It's about what they enable. And it's incredibly exciting as we continue to evolve our design philosophy." 

About MyPlace Lounge Collection:

A simple, adaptive, configurable lounge system, MyPlace supports both private and open planning and serves as a backbone, accommodating a variety of work styles from individual, focus areas to open regenerative spaces. Its flexibility creates areas for small, private group work but transforms easily into larger configurations for large group and lounge environments.

MyPlace allows you to work, relax, learn, focus, socialize, and collaborate in environments tailored to your needs. It offers power at your fingertips, providing power throughout an entire lounge area. Varying panel heights create levels of privacy and space differentiation. 48” panels can be used to divide space without inhibiting communication; 64” high panels increase privacy levels.

Simple, curved and flat geometric shapes come together in a harmonious design theme. MyPlace is a sophisticated and adaptive lounge system for all environments, from personal and private, to open group settings. It can be specified with unique combinations of color, texture, and material.

In addition to awards, NeoCon attendees were encouraged to participate in KI's #NeoConography contest. For the fifth year, KI hosted #NeoConography- a photography contest designed to showcase the creativity of NeoCon attendees. Nearly 500 photos were shot and tagged with the #NeoConography hashtag and shared with KI on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest for the chance to win a custom NeoCon-inspired watch and photo book. View photos >
