NeoCon 2011: Design Exhibition and Conference for Commercial Interiors!

Last updated 7 years ago

Chau, Associate Interior Designer at BKDI, recently returned to the office after visiting Chicago for the NeoCon 2011 expo & conference. This year there were some pretty innovative product and showroom displays in the Merchandise Mart – and “WOW this is a MASSIVE building!” Some of Chau’s favourites were: DIRTT and Steelcase, for integrating technology with their furniture & for great health care solutions; Knoll for their beautiful, slick furniture; Shaw Carpets for their flooring solutions and innovative showroom displays; and Haworth’s “Belong Accessories.”

During the expo, Chau managed to take in some of the other art and architectural scenes in Chicago. She spent time at Millennium Park and on the Architectural River Tour – “What a great way to see the city!” Both experiences were “impressive and awe inspiring,” but the main event was Anish Kampoor’s Cloud Gate – “to see it in person… truly a REDONKULOUS piece of art!”
