NeoCon 2010 comes to a close today at Chicago's Merchandise Mart, wrapping up an amazing showcase of products galore that filled the building’s 18 stories. This year NeoCon offered up a number of green zones, offered opportunities to win green prizes on a sustainable product scavenger hunt, and showcased some fresh new eco products and a handful of old Inhabitat favorites - read on for the best from the show!
Scattered throughout NeoCon were signs inviting attendees to choose their own Eco-Adventures. Attendees could one of two Eco-trips or a Public Bike just by stopping by and dropping off a business card or getting your badge scanned.
Neocon also featured a small exhibit dedicated to innovation in green design. The display showcased 50 products and covered everything from wall coverings to children’s gifts. Pictured above and to the right are Herman Miller’s Setu Chair and Hon’s Ignition Chair respectively.
3Form launched their new Gecko tiles at NeoCon 2010. These water-applied decals allow designers to add color and extra privacy to existing glass installations. Each panel can be used multiple times, allowing inhabitants to change the colors as often as they wish to match the changing seasons.
Grace Yougeun Lee‘s gorgeous multifunctional waste bin was featured in the Furniture Revolution Design Gallery dedicated to emerging students and young designers. The simple design functions as both a side table and a pushbutton trash bin, making it perfect for those in need of extra space.
Haworth strung up a beautiful set of three-dimensional wool clouds designed in collaboration with Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. The modular clouds are pieced together from simple sheets of wool and are available in a variety of different colors.
