very year the industry looks
forward to the trade show
that is truly the Super Bowl
of design: NeoCon. For 2018
NeoCon holds even more
importance as it is the 50th anniversary of
the premiere industry event. As always, i+s
has compiled a preview of products that will
be on display in the Merchandise Mart next
month. Flip through the following pages to find
the hottest in today’s innovations and trends
across all product categories.
1. With its graphic geometrics,
deep texture, and layers of
metallic accents, Outlier from
Bentley challenges traditional
design conventions. Outlier
plays perfectly with interiors’
increasingly blended home/play/
work spaces. Its geometric design gives the illusion of having
grown over the highly textured,
organic background. Inflections
of silvers, bronzes, and golds
sync with commercial finishes.
2. KI introduces the Ruckus
height-adjustable mobile lectern.
From makerspaces and tiered
classrooms to labs, interactive pods, and training rooms,
Ruckus gives students and
educators the freedom to concentrate, collaborate, and innovate on their terms. Ruckus easily
adjusts for all sit-stand heights
between 29 and 43. 75 inches.
