BUILDINGS - Smarter Facilities Management

Product Innovations 2016

Creative interior solutions that enhance occupant productivity and building performance

By Chris Olson
 

As the densification trend continues and the average space per office occupant shrinks, building interiors need to work harder. Smart FMs know they must support occupants with the right furniture, lighting and technology options.

Product Innovations is BUILDINGS’ award program for the most effective and innovative interior products. Exhibitors at NeoCon 2016, the national interior design show, are eligible to participate. The BUILDINGS editorial team evaluated product submissions on performance, sustainability and maintenance. Products that reached the finalist stage were evaluated in person at NeoCon in June.  

This year’s winners cover a range of solutions, including acoustics, seating, furniture systems, lighting, walls and partitions, technology support and flooring.
