NeoCon 2016: See Our Award-Winning Rocking Chair

NeoCon 2016

Norix Furniture’s NeoCon 2016 booth.

Norix has arrived at NeoCon 2016! Literally … we are here at booth 7-2066 with our award-winning rocking chair that was recently awarded a gold medal in the Heatlhcare Design Magazine Product Innovation Awards.

The product, named RockSmart, is a chair designed from the ground up for soothing comfort, exceptional durability and aesthetic appeal. Its signature one-piece shape is sculpted from rotationally molded polyethylene for a calming, safe and comfortable rock. It’s also equipped with ultraviolet light stabilizers to reduce fading and is highly fluid resistant. RockSmart comes in both indoor and outdoor versions with appropriate safeguards that make it applicable to both.

“RockSmart is a huge leap forward not only for Norix but also for the concept of the rocking chair as we know it. It was partially inspired by surfboards and the motion of ocean waves. This is what gives it both its aesthetic appeal and smooth rocking motion,” Brad Karl, Director of Innovation at Norix, said. “It also has jaw-dropping design lines, along with the durability and safety features that are needed in spaces where constant use is a challenge.”

Additionally, Norix will be showcasing a new and cheeky line of seating called Wink. Unlike traditional products which mix wood frames and upholstery, this series features a sturdy, one-piece rotationally molded polyethylene frame with a lightly textured surface that allows for easy cleaning. It also features non-removable nylon glides that protect your floors, and the frame’s Premium TruColor™ material is fully compounded for superior color and quality assurance.

And with hundreds of upholstery selections to choose from, Wink gives you options. Select organic, abstract or geometric patterns, all of which can come in the greens, blues, oranges, reds and foggy grays of nature. Our upholstery also comes in a variety of performance options so you can choose the appropriate fabric for the spaces in your facility.

neocon_blog3Wink cushions are fully upholstered and filled with polyurethane foam and connected to the frame with tamper-resistant hardware and molded-in steel inserts for a secure steel-to-steel connection. Additionally, the chair features wipe out spaces on the sides and a clean out space behind the seat so you can keep this chair clean for years to come.

Wink also comes in an indoor and outdoor version as well, with appropriate grades of upholstery, cushions and plywood available that stand up to swampy rains and bright, sunny days.
