June 21, 2022 (Toronto) – As another successful NeoCon has come to a close, Keilhauer is thrilled to announce the award wins their products received from various juries and judging panels during NeoCon, the world’s leading platform event for the commercial design industry.
“Our products that launched at NeoCon this year act as sophisticated, functional solutions for the ever-changing modern workplace, and the evolving needs of those who occupy them,” says Mike Keilhauer, President. “We are so honored that Forsi and Melete were recognized and celebrated by our design community with these meaningful award wins.”
One of three Keilhauer product lines launched at the iconic Merchandise Mart in Chicago, the Forsi collection is a conference furniture collection that is built to meet the needs of the modern meeting. Designed by EOOS, Forsi chairs and tables feature an innovative working lounge height that sits in the sweet spot between conference room formality and lounge area relaxation. Forsi was awarded Gold from Best of NeoCon, in the Conference Furniture category, which was presented at the 32nd edition of the Best of NeoCon Breakfast on June 13. Forsi was also honored with a Metropolis Likes Award, winning in the Workplace Furniture category. Metropolis Likes is an awards program presented by Metropolis Magazine, recognizing NeoCon-launched products that embody the best in manufacturing strategies that meet the needs of healthy, climate-ready interiors.
Melete, Keilhauer’s first collaboration with Swedish design studio Afteroom, is a sculptural, functional side chair that is grounded in timeless design sensibilities. With the versatility of several unique configurations, it has the ability to elevate almost any environment, providing elegance and a unique beauty to the design space. Melete was a popular product amongst NeoCon juries, receiving two awards that celebrated its versatility and thoughtful design. Melete was awarded with a Sustainability award from Best of NeoCon, in the Guest Seating category. Melete was also awarded a HiP Award, winning in the Workplace Guest Seating category.
