Gold for halm at the NeoCon
halm at the helm in the USA
And yet another prize for halm! After receiving a number of accolades including the 2017
for Product Design, halm is now the proud recipient of a 2017 Gold Award from the renowned US design trade show, NeoCon (12-14 June 2017). For almost 50 years, the NeoCon in Chicago has been regarded as one of the world’s most important trade fairs for commercial design. Showcasing here are the branch’s latest developments and the ideas of tomorrow. Every year, more than 500 leading companies present their wares to around 50,000 trade visitors from the world of design.
In the run-up to the trade show, a panel of judges comprising more than 40 architects, interior designers and facility managers assessed the fair’s new products and awarded first and second prizes in 42 categories. halm took the top prize in the ‘Seating: Stacking’ category. What impressed the judges were the unusual and harmonious aspects of its design: its delicate, stacking composition features a mix of solid wood and plastic that is practically seamless. The result is an elegant chair that is particularly stable and easy to clean – ideal for the catering and care sectors.
halm was launched under the name of ‘Reed’ at the NeoCon by the Brunner Group’s American licensee, Davis Furniture.
