Innovant Secures Top Honors for Design Excellence with 2 Platinum ADEX Awards
Innovant, a leading manufacturer of contract office furniture, has been honored with two Platinum 2015 Awards for Design Excellence
(ADEX). This annual competition, sponsored by the Design Journal, is
the largest and most prestigious award program for product design.
Innovant’s FORm_AV product received a Platinum ADEX Award for its revolutionary design. The freestanding unit houses video conferencing technology and supports either single or dual monitors (up to 80” in size). With all cabling seamlessly contained within the technology stand and accompanying conference table, FORm_AV offers superior utility with zero disruption of the physical environment. It also provides unparalleled flexibility and speed of assembly or relocation for the rapidly changing conference environment.
Innovant’s FORm_office Standing Height also received a Platinum Award for its best-in-class performance. The comprehensive benching system addresses many of the concerns created by adjustable height desking: cost, reliability, consistent aesthetics, cable management and safety of operation. Ideal for collaborative offices concerned with employee health and workplace aesthetic, FORm_office Standing Height is set at 38” or 42” high. This allows all users to work in a standing or seated position without the added cost of adjustable height mechanisms.
“Both products were designed in collaboration with high profile clients whose unique requirements were not met by the marketplace,” explains Bruce Wells, Director of Marketing & Development. “Innovant excels at this kind of design partnership.”
In addition to receiving two Platinum Awards (ADEX’s highest award level), Innovant’s PRIVATE_office product was recognized as a Finalist for outstanding design and finishing. “The 2014-2015 ADEX Awards attracted upwards of 500 companies submitting thousands of innovative new products,” John Platter, Executive Director of ADEX. Categories for this award include furniture, fixtures and finishes. ADEX selects judges that are the most celebrated in their respective areas of expertise. Platinum, Gold and Silver level products will be published in the 2015 ADEX Winners Issue of Design Journal.
