NeoCon: where ingenuity meets flair

Recently, Interior Designers from Benco Dental’s CenterPoint Design attended NeoCon, The National Exposition of Contract Furnishing in Chicago, IL. NeoCon, North America’s largest design exposition and conference for commercial interiors, is annually attended by more than 40,000 architecture and design professionals.

“With over three days of non-stop resources, energy and ideas, NeoCon is the single most important industry event of the year. NeoCon provided our designers access to the latest and most innovative products and endless networking and educational opportunities,” said Megan Chuzas, Interior Designer at Benco Dental’s CenterPoint Design.

The designers in attendance focused on discovering new furniture prospects, learning about the latest in commercial flooring options, and finding inspiration in the up-and-coming design trends.

“Let’s talk inspiration! Molo is one of those products that left a lasting impression,” said Amanda Griffith,  Interior Designer at Benco Dental’s CenterPoint Design.

She refers to the Canadian-based company Molo. Dedicated to an exploration of sensory experience in space making, combined with experiments in manufacturing, materials and structure, the Molo studio explores overlapping realms of art, architecture and design.

Molo’s products are inspired by studies in architecture and the idea that smaller tactile objects have a real potency in the physical experience of the built environment.

Next year’s NeoCon will take place June 15-17, 2015, at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.
