New Sylvi modular lounge collection from izzy+ wins Gold Award in Best of NeoCon 2015 competition

CHICAGO – June 2015 – The new Sylvi modular lounge collection at izzy+ earned a Gold Award in the 2015 Best of NeoCon Awards Competition for Lounge Furniture Collections.

The Sylvi collection was created for izzy+ by award-winning designer Joey Ruiter, a major influence on today’s human-centric workplace and learning design. His ongoing exploration of second and third spaces with izzy+ includes the company’s award-winning Dewey 6-top table and learning collection, as well as architectural elements like the Nemo bar and trellis.

Sylvi pairs perfectly with people working outside traditional office spaces, at home in upscale lobbies, break-out spaces and those in-between places. With clean lines and a straight-forward design, Sylvi is a creative canvas that can inspire a range of modern looks.

Perhaps its finest point, Sylvi offers residential-like comfort while holding its own under the wear-and-tear pressures of the corporate world.

“Our relationship with Joey Ruiter is truly special, and we value his tremendous talent and design curiosity,” says izzy+ CEO Kevin Kuske. “We’ve been working hard to help people revolt against routine – to be healthier, happier and more productive where they learn and work. Joey understands that vision. He’s helping us give people the tools for 3rd spaces, where they can move from one place to another, more naturally like we do when we’re at home.”

“The reaction to Sylvi at NeoCon says it all,” he says. “Even though we’re in the middle of the world’s top trade show for office furniture, people are already holding meetings in our showroom, stopping at Sylvi to check their messages and recharging before heading to their next appointment.”

A jury of 44 design professionals reviewed 345 product entries to select this year’s winners.
