June 13, 2022

CHICAGO (June 13) - KI is pleased to announce it was named the winner of the Best Large Showroom category in the IIDA Showroom and Booth Competition at NeoCon 2022. The company also received a Best of NeoCon Silver award for its new LimeLite Seating collection.

"We're incredibly honored to be recognized in the IIDA showroom competition and Best of NeoCon awards," said Joe Burkard, KI's vice president of marketing and communications. "These accolades are a testament to our team's commitment to meaningful design that resonates with people and makes a positive impact on their daily lives."

The winning showrooms of the IIDA competition were chosen by a jury of experts for their original design, visual impact and outstanding use of space, materials, lighting, color, texture and graphics. KI's showroom was designed by Sheila LaCount, an interior designer who has worked at the company for several decades.

"This year's winners exemplified the best in both originality and practicality, offering innovation and a fresh approach," said Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA, executive vice president and CEO of IIDA. "Creating visually stimulating, stand-out designs that are functional in their respective spaces takes true talent."

KI also left the show with a Best of NeoCon Silver award in the stack seating category for LimeLite. The 32nd annual competition, Best of NeoCon awards products based on design excellence and innovation. Created in partnership with industrial designer Aaron DeJule, LimeLite is KI's first comprehensive family of stack seating since the release of Strive. LimeLite offers versatile stack, task, nesting and high-density chairs and stools with a relaxed seat flex and refined aesthetics.

"As a longtime leader in the stack seating market, we're thrilled that LimeLite's design resonated with the NeoCon community," said Julie Stadtmueller, senior product marketing manager at KI. "LimeLite elevates the expectation for seating with a trifecta of architecturally inspired aesthetics, user comfort and flexibility for a variety of uses."
