As the densification trend continues and the average space per office occupant
shrinks, building interiors need to work harder. Smart FMs know they must support
occupants with the right furniture, lighting and technology options.
Product Innovations is BUILDINGS’ award program for the most effective and
innovative interior products. Exhibitors at NeoCon 2016, the national interior design
show, are eligible to participate. The BUILDINGS editorial team evaluated product
submissions on performance, sustainability and maintenance. Products that reached
the finalist stage were evaluated in person at NeoCon in June.
This year’s winners cover a range of solutions, including acoustics, seating,
furniture systems, lighting, walls and partitions, technology support and flooring.
Creative solutions for interiors that enhance building performance
The BUILDINGS Editors’ Choice award is given to a
single product that has earned the personal seal of
approval of the editorial staff. In brief, this award
means “Wow, we want one of those!”
