Heartwork was thrilled to partner with Digilock, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality electronic locker, cabinet and furniture locks, at NeoCon 2019. Our Building Block 36W 3H Digital Locker was featured in Mint, paired with a walnut top. We highlighted the magnetic qualities of our products with compatible accessories to give an idea of how you can customize your Heartwork storage.
We felt inspired after seeing much of the market represented under one roof, here are some insights we brought back to NYC with us:
That’s Commercial Grade?
We were pleased to see many designers and brands joining us in the belief that commercial grade quality doesn’t have to come at the compromise of design. With designers considering the lifecycle and impact on the environment their product will have, quality and durability have increasingly important roles in today’s market.
Color on the Rise
For any followers of Heartwork, it isn’t news that we are big fans of color. So we were pleased to see that more and more, the industry is embracing color across different materials, finishes and surfaces – recognizing its influence on both the visual impact of the workplace and the emotional wellbeing of its employees. While there were neutral palettes aplenty, we frequently spotted some dusty rose and melodramatic purple as accents color options for the office.
Collaboration Meets Personalization
Providing opportunities for personal expression while encouraging collaboration is increasingly significant in growth areas like coworking and open offices. Products that are functional in a variety of settings, from the kitchen to the reception area, help to provide multiple working areas within an office to allow the individual to choose how they want to work.
