Prior to the beginning of Neocon 2015 (the largest commercial interiors show in North America, taking place at The Merchandise Mart in Chicago) Enwork's product development team was tasked to come up with concepts for some additional, supplementary pieces to display in their showroom space for the design show. I became the principal designer for two of these designs.
The first piece desired was a soft-seating unit. I went to the drawing board, began sketching, and developed the concept for Pixley Soft Seating. This piece was organic in design and emulated the shape of the company logo. it is intended for collaborative, teleconferencing, and brief meetings between 2-5 users. My design intent was to incorporate power/data access to users as well as an integrated stadium shelf. My design concept was the "winning" piece and was thus manufactured to be presented at Neocon 2015!
The second piece was not specifically requested to be created for the show. I was however so inspired by the unique LED backlit conference table design, being placed front and center in the space, I felt an off-the-shelf light fixture would not suffice. Therefore I came up with the concept for the Luminesse light fixture. This architectural light fixture was created in a hand painted wood veneer, proportions relate directly to the table light details below, and I incorporated the same LED backlit diffusion process also used on the table below.
