Bernhardt Design and Andreu World have done it again, taking out a number of Gold and Silver awards at the Best of NeoCon 2017 Awards. Held on June 12 at the Renaissance Hotel in Chicago, the annual awards ceremony hosted by Contract magazine recognises innovation, quality and attention to detail in contact furnishing for commercial environments.
A total of six awards went to Bernhardt Design and Andreu World including…
Editors’ Choice: Bernhardt Design – Terry Crews Collection
The Terry Crews Collection is part of Bernhardt Design’s ongoing initiative to collaborate with people outside the traditional design world and it’s certainly proved Bernhardt’s President and Creative Director Jerry Helling’s instincts to be correct. Picking up the Editors’ Choice award, the Egypt-inspired collection includes five pieces and Helling even hails the Ibis sofa “as the best thing we’ve ever done.”
SEATING: BAR STOOLS
Silver: Andreu World – Smart Barstool
The Smart Barstool, designed by Estudio Andreu, is a new stool version of the existing Smart chair collection. It is made of solid beech wood with either a timber, upholstered or woven-band seat and just like the existing chair, perfectly balances form and ergonomics with strength and lightness.
Silver: Bernhardt Design – Catia
Designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, Catia is part of the Modern Family range of furniture. Catia is a streamlined cushioned bench that brings refinement and sophistication to a product category often overlooked. It is light in appearance with elliptical fin supports and an upholstered seat.
SEATING: SOFAS & LOUNGE
Gold: Andreu World – Capri Lounge
Like many of the great classic lounge chairs, the design of the Capri Lounge is focused on comfort and a high-end aesthetic. With a footstool, four-star or sled base along with optional arms, the Capri Lounge chair offers a sophisticated seating solution for both commercial and residential spaces.
Gold: Andreu World – Lake
Designed by Piergiorgio Cazzaniga the Lake chair is a versatile stacking chair has strong lines and clean angles and a four-rail horizontal backrest. The top rail curves outwards like a handle, allowing it to be easily picked up, moved and stacked.
TABLES: COMMUNAL & TASK
Gold: Andreu World – Radial High Table
Radial is a smart collection of tables that can be integrated into many environments to perform a variety of functions. The Radial High Table is an ideal communal and task table and its design can be customised with different tabletop materials and dimensions.
