Two-Thirds™, an agile seating and surfaces solution by Joey Ruiter for Allsteel Inc., incorporates geometric shapes and lightweight design for a collection that adjusts and adapts as readily as teams do. From impromptu meetings to restful moments spent solo, the airy, volumetric designs create comfort across the workplace and in-between spaces.

The Best of NeoCon Competition presented by Contract Magazine honors new products exhibited during NeoCon in June, celebrating products in 42 categories that have been introduced to the U.S. market since the close of NeoCon 2018. Jurors are architects and designers, as well as corporate, education, healthcare, and government facilities management executives who are responsible for selecting and buying furniture and furnishings for their clients or organizations. 

Awarded Best of NeoCon Gold in the Office Accessories category, Radii is a new storage offering from Allsteel Inc. and IDA Design that encourages workers to stow rather than store, creating personalized and travel-size compartments that move across the office whenever teams shift. In today’s agile work environment, the versatile and space-efficient system of metal storage pedestals and desk undermounts clears the office clutter and gives workers the freedom to personalize their space, a factor that has been shown to improve worker wellbeing.

Receiving Best of NeoCon Silver in the Movable Walls category, Beyond pavilion is the latest enhancement made possible by Allsteel Inc.’s Beyond architectural walls. Responding to the constant rhythm of change in the evolving workplace, Beyond pavilion adds a flexible space-within-a-space for employees to gather, work, rest, or mingle. In a time where five generations can be found in the same workplace, the reconfigurable solution creates meaningful solo and collaborative destinations, while the power and technology integration support a variety of work styles.
