For those who are less familiar with the furniture industry, NeoCon is the largest commercial interiors show in the United States that is hosted each year in Chicago. NeoCon is a leading platform for connecting, learning, and doing business in the industry. This three-day event attracts design professionals and showcases leading design companies, like Knoll, one of our exclusive manufacturers. Knoll introduced Pixel™, Prism™ and the KnollTextiles Adjaye Collection, Horsepower™ and Pop Up™, new designs that support collaboration, connectivity and choice.
The following is an excerpt from Knoll's website about their 2015 NeoCon showroom:
The Knoll showroom revolves around the theme the office network, building on the company's r/evolution workplace platform. The office network explores the relationship between social networks in the workplace and the spaces and technology that enable them. Knoll's display places special emphasis on uniting the social, physical and electrical power imperatives that influence design.
The 2015 showroom is organized around four distinct interior planning paradigms: Perimeter, Core, Efficient and Adaptive.
The showroom also focuses on powering the workplace, supporting a network of workers and delivering flexibility to evolve. Solutions to power the workplace include Horsepower, which debuted today, as well as Service Wall and Fence, Knoll's pioneering high-performance spine-based conduits. Solutions to support the network include videoconferencing at various scales and Activity Spaces with screen sharing technologies. Knoll products also demonstrate support for new and emerging technologies like Cisco and AppleTV, and will support emerging ones. Solutions to anticipate future change include Interpole, Fence and Service Wall, as well as the lightweight, mobile Horsepower, which makes it easy to move power with the user.

Horsepower™. Horsepower by Antenna Design is a visually light power conduit, spirited in form and steady on its feet. The independent, cord-set module serves as an on-demand, mobile power source suited to a range of applications and Activity Spaces wherever structure and power delivery are needed. Optional seat cushions create an impromptu bench in community spaces and video display, whiteboard and open storage options equip flexible, shared work areas. Configured Horsepower modules can also furnish dynamic open plan environments with hardwired, multi-circuit power, cable management, suspended storage, sawhorse-style desk supports, modesty panels and privacy screens.
