Creative solutions to enhance your building performance

Think the look and feel of your interiors is better left to designers? When everything from seating and workstations to acoustics and lighting impacts productivity, facility managers have a stake in the types of products their occupants use on a daily basis. Awarded during NeoCon 2014, an interior design show, Product Innovations is a collection of offerings that are more than just aesthetically pleasing. Our editors grilled companies on sustainability, performance, and maintenance to find the best FM solutions.

This year’s Grand Prize and Merit Award winners cover a diverse range of solutions, including flooring that takes the headache out of installation, seating that prioritizes ergonomics, lighting that minimizes glare, and furniture that alleviates the cacophony of open office plans.
