Herman Miller Brands Capture Multiple Awards at NeoCon

Nemschoff and Geiger Recognized in Healthcare and Ergonomic/Task Seating Categories; Herman Miller receives OFDA Manufacturer of the Year Gold Award.

Herman Miller, Inc., is celebrating multiple honors this week at the NeoCon 2011 World's Trade Fair in Chicago, June 13-15. NeoCon is North America's largest exhibition of contract furnishings for the design and management of the built environment. The annual gathering of design professionals, corporate end users, and furniture dealers recognized the company in three separate awards including Healthcare furniture.

The annual Best of NeoCon awards for product, juried by interior design and facility management professionals who reviewed almost 350 entries, acknowledged Nemschoff's Oasis Overbed table with the Gold award in the Healthcare Furniture Category, marking the second consecutive year Herman Miller Healthcare received Gold award in a Healthcare category.

Geiger also received a Silver award for their Sotto Executive Chair in the Ergonomic/Task Seating category. Designed by George Simons Jr., Sotto is suited for the management environment that appreciates a quiet design statement.

In addition to product accolades, Herman Miller also received the "2011 Manufacturer of the Year Gold Award," presented by the Office Furniture Dealers Alliance (OFDA). The industry association for independent U.S. and Canadian office furniture dealers annually surveys its membership for their opinions on industry manufacturers. The awards are then presented in conjunction with the NeoCon gathering. This is the fifth time in six years that Herman Miller has received the top prize among major manufacturers.

The best of NeoCon awards, now in their 22nd year, are sponsored and organized by the International Interior Design Association, the International Facility Management Association, Contract magazine, the McMorrow Report, and Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc.
