The editors at Metropolis have selected Rockwell Unscripted™ and Andissa Upholstery from The Odyssey Collection to win a #MetropolisLikes awards at NeoCon 2016. #MetropolisLikes is a social media award that the magazine presents for a number of trade shows during the year. Rockwell Unscripted and Andissa Upholstery are two of 35 total products at NeoCon 2016 that were selected from over 300 submissions.
Rockwell Unscripted by Rockwell Group
Designed by Rockwell Group, the award-winning design firm reknowned for its theater and hospitality environments, Rockwell Unscripted is a comprehensive collection of furniture elements that support and adapt to the spontaneous choreography of the work day. The collection spans six categories—Borders, Steps, Tables, Seating, Storage and Accessories—and includes more than 30 products.
"Our interest is in getting people to look at their work environments as a stage on which movable furniture can be arranged in endless configurations," said David Rockwell, Rockwell Group founder and president.
Andissa Upholstery from The Odyssey Collection by Dorothy Cosonas
KnollTextiles Creative Director Dorothy Cosonas drew inspiration for Andissa Upholstery from an heirloom rug that had belonged to her grandmother. The rug was part of Cosonas' grandmother's dowry and was woven by hand by Greek nuns on the Isle of Lesbos in 1913. Andissa Upholstery, a large graphic pattern, belongs to The Odyssey Collection, which makes its debut at NeoCon 2016 and will launch in July 2016. Like Andissa specifically, The Odyssey Collection extracts and modernizes design motifs found in the creative director's history—a personal twist for a designer who has long found inspiration in the worlds of high fashion and art.
