I took a chance and reached out to some of the manufacturers to try and pry out of them what new and exciting products they will be showing at NeoCon this year. I didn’t think I would be successful, but lo and behold, they were eager to give me some tidbits about upcoming products (of course, you will have to wait until NeoCon to see the actual products). See several from our April issue.
Dauphin to Build on Perillo and Konstrux Successes
Dauphin’s COO, Stuart Rogers-Brown, said it best,

We plan to build on all of these successes this year at NeoCon by adding even more innovative furnishings for Dynamic Spaces. From a variety of exciting new chair offerings to our expanding table program, there will be a lot of cool new products to see.”

CoalesseÃƒâ€š ® Introduces Arik Levy’s Pattern to the EMUÃƒâ€š ® Advanced Collection
CoalesseÃƒâ€š ® expands its indoor/outdoor furniture portfolio thanks to Pattern, the newest series of indoor/outdoor furniture in the EMU Advanced Collection.
Created by designer Arik Levy, Emu Pattern consists of a family of stackable chairs (in arm and armless versions); bench seating; and round and square tables, all featuring a distinctive cut-out hexagonal pattern that creates a unique and airy feel. Levy describes Pattern as,
A structural idea of transparency and lightness, immersed in the landscape that offers subtle motifs and a visual play of technological beauty.
The collection is constructed through an innovative, highly-technological production process that gives rise to a one-piece outdoor steel chair. It is press-molded and 100% recyclable, which marks an important new development in Emu’s approach to metal and furthers Coalesse’s commitment to sustainability. The steel used to create Pattern boasts mechanical properties specially designed to withstand the deep drawing process that gives it its pliability. The legs are also made by the deep drawing of a metal sheet, which is then joined to the structures with an advanced welding process, called TIG.
The final effect is a monolithic form that is indestructible in almost any weather conditions. While lightweight, it enjoys industrial durability and is approved for all contract environments. Pattern is available for order from Coalesse.
