Knoll Inc., a constellation of design-driven brands and people, will showcase a range of immersive workplace planning solutions for commercial, healthcare, and educational spaces at NeoCon 2017 – the annual contract industry trade show that will take place in Chicago from June 12 to 14.
The Knoll NeoCon showroom will present Rockwell Unscripted by Rockwell Group, a broad furniture collection that sets the stage for an Immersive workplace experience. The showroom will also demonstrate the power of bringing together the company’s constellation of workplace solutions and brands – including Knoll Office and Knoll Studio furnishings and accessories; DatesWeiser conference and meeting room furniture; Spinneybeck and FilzFelt architectural and acoustic materials; and the diversity of KnollTextiles fabrics, wallcoverings, and drapery.
This year at NeoCon, KnollTextiles is celebrating 70 years of groundbreaking textile design. In addition, Knoll is celebrating 100 years of Florence Knoll whose birthday is on May 24.
This year’s NeoCon display builds on the company’s 2016 preview of Rockwell Unscripted, demonstrating how the robust collection of furniture works in tandem with Knoll open plan and ergonomic solutions to make Immersive planning possible. Knoll has identified Immersive planning as a new way to address the contemporary workplace. This planning model blurs the lines between workspace types, enhancing interaction and connected experiences, and creating a sense of hospitality at every exchange.
Presenting Rockwell Unscripted
Rockwell Unscripted by Rockwell Group – a comprehensive collection of 30 furniture elements across six product categories that adapt to the spontaneous choreography of the work day – creates an unrivaled work experience designed to let spontaneity unfold and people complete the story.
As mobility lifts limitations on where work is done, organizations are challenged to create engaging environments that draw workers to the office. As the pace and change of group-based work challenges the way the workplace functions, blurring the boundary between work and play in the office doesn’t diminish the amount of work being done. Instead, it injects a new vitality, creating holistic, open-to-interpretation workplaces that can enhance ingenuity and productivity.
Rockwell Unscripted takes the notion of planning for spontaneity from an inherent contradiction to a tangible reality: furniture can be adapted or reconfigured around at any given moment and organizations can develop the space over the course of a weekend or organically over time.
Comprised of an eclectic array of freestanding, architecturally grounded and moveable elements that can be used to create everything from gathering spaces to quiet retreats, Rockwell Unscripted creates the stage for an Immersive workspace. Creative Walls, Puffy, and Telly screens and steps evoke the energy of performance, while tables and seating create experiences for work, conversation, and celebration. Storage puts inspiration within reach and accessories help you feel at home. All of it comes to life by the people that activate the space.
Expanded Wood Products Finishing Capabilities
This year at NeoCon 2017, Knoll will preview new veneer finishing capabilities, including an expanded range of gloss levels. New technology at the company’s Toronto wood manufacturing facility has been engineered to enhance veneer finishing characteristics, resulting in a clearer and more vibrant range of finishes. This new technology builds upon the long-standing Knoll commitment to leading-edge environmental practices, sourcing wood from responsibly managed forests and leading the way in clean manufacturing technology.
