The 15th annual NeoCon East exhibition took place on 15 and 16 November at the Pennsylvania Convention Centre. The event highlighted a number of new commercial interior solutions, with 150 companies showcasing a wide range of innovations spanning the workplace, education, retail, healthcare and hospitality sectors.

Some of the interesting trends and products seen at the event included:

Soundproof phone booths and meeting pods
Framery displayed the “Framery O Phone booth”, which is a great solution when discussions need to be done in private. The “Framery Q meeting pod” allows 2 to 4 person meetings in private, without disturbing the office.

Enhancing floors with light
Patcraft previewed their new modular collection called Material Paradox at the event. By using light to enhance the pattern and add textural and visual depth, Material Paradox products are combined with colour filters that are overlaid to create scale and contrast to achieve balance within a space.

Experimenting with patterns in environments
Shaw Contract showcased their “Off the Grid” and “Emergence” carpets. Emergence experiments with the perception and use of pattern in our environments. The collection is expressive, infusing the atmosphere with curiosity and delight. Off the Grid is a deeply textural collection of undulating patterns that mirror the natural world.
