NeoCon 2024 Recap

NeoCon 2024 brought new solutions to the most pressing needs of the modern office. A welcome addition to every solution was transparency about the sustainability behind every product from manufacturing to end of life. It was the colors, comfort, collaboration and more that caught the attention of our team and the designers who shopped the show with us this year. Special thanks to: Arthur Garcia-Clemente (Partners By Design), Nicole Zack (Ted Moudis), Sam Mason  (Collective DC), Nisha Sewel (Arcadis) and Mahsa Saeedi (Arcadis).

It’s time to meet the standouts below!

Tables Takeover

Howe Folding Surfaces Tables with OE Electronics Power

This table’s powerful ability to connect people in the workplace was an all around favorite at NeoCon 2024.

Howe Folding Surfaces Tables

As clients adjust to hybrid work models, it’s no secret that the number one reason staff are choosing to come into the office is to reconnect with colleagues and collaborate. In turn, as workplace designers, clients are demanding more innovation in flexible and collaborative spaces. This table is filling a gap in the market that workplace designers have been craving. Not only has the company designed a tasteful folding harvest table, which is, in itself, unique, but Howe partnered with OE Electrics to integrate portable power, and guess what that means? No core drills! This not only satisfies the collaborative needs of our clients, but it also addresses a budgetary concern. As the temperature of the workplace is still adjusting since returning to the office, this is a no fuss solution in a time of transition for users.

This answers 100 problems at once; but let’s focus on the biggest ones: flexibility in collaborative spaces and less of a headache for power coordination.

Nienkamper’s Vox Community Table

Vox’s community table offered a great shared work table designed for the new alternative office landscape.

Bulo’s Senses Bench

This bean-shaped tabletop design stands out from the plethora of rectangular desks.


The organic shape offers ample workspace for everyone’s tools and technology while feeling inviting and more natural. The use of a textured paper material is a refreshing change from the standard laminate.

Framery Four Accessible Smart Pod

The new Framery Four Accessible Smart Pod takes equitable design to the next level by offering unparalleled user benefits to all regardless of  ability.


The Framery Four Accessible is now the first smart pod in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Featuring a door designed for wheelchair access, low threshold, folding sofa and folding table, the Framery Four Accessible allows for T shaped turning in a compact, intuitively designed space. And with a bar installed for pushing and pulling the door from a wheelchair as well as the internal controls, screen and outlets being installed  at an operative height, the Four Accessible allows for completely streamlined, unaided usage. 

Sit Back and Relax

It is made of mostly recycled materials and is designed to be easily assembled. The color options work with any contemporary palette, and it is quite comfortable – at a shockingly low price. Simplicity (sometimes) is best!

Okamura’s Specere Chair

Channeling the philosophy of returning to the basics, Specere promotes a healthy and comfortable sitting experience, without being overly complicated.


Inspired by the drafting chairs of the 1950s, Specere has been reimagined for the modern office, uniting the charm of the past with the innovation of the future. The Specere chair encourages an active posture, supporting the user’s natural movement and fostering a sense of well-being while seated. Specere has been designed with the environment in mind. By limiting the number of materials and components, it has lowered the carbon footprint through production and distribution. While built to last, Specere’s components can be disassembled for recycling.
