For the ninth year in a row, Knoll set the stage at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting in New York City, held this year from September 21 – 24, 2014. Hosted by President Bill Clinton, Secretary Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, the 10th Annual Meeting brought “over 1,000 leaders and CGI members to facilitate the development of forward-thinking approaches that re-envision the way we impact the world.”
This year’s meeting, themed Reimagining Impact, focused on guiding “CGI members in better measuring and assessing the outcomes of their work, and rethinking how we create value through new approaches to address complex global challenges going forward.”
Knoll and CGI worked to create the Impact Lounge, the Activity Spaces destination for delegates to discuss and map out their commitments to CGI. The lounge featured a range of Community, Refuge and Meeting Activity Spaces, creating go-to spaces for participants to hold meetings, check email and recharge. CGI Activity Spaces featured k.™ lounge, the newest soft seating collection from Knoll, as well as Suzanne Sofas, Laccio Coffee Tables, Antenna® Workspaces Media Enclaves, Scribe™ Mobile Markerboards, Antenna Y-Base Tables, ReGeneration by Knoll® high task chairs and MultiGeneration by Knoll® side chairs.
Plenary sessions featured Generation by Knoll®, the first chair to be rated SMaRT© Sustainable Platinum and is BIFMA level™ 3 certified, GREENGARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GREENGUUARD Children and School℠ certified.
