Bretford, Manufacturing, Inc. (NeoCon Showroom #330), leading supplier of technology and media furniture that improves how people work and learn, is transforming its showroom for the NeoCon World’s Trade Fair 2008 to illustrate how its carts, tables, workstations and other products are being used throughout higher education, library and corporate environments. NeoCon also serves as the official launching pad for Bretford’s new line of RHOMBII™ training tables. Further, showroom visitors can see a demonstration of BretfordCommons™, the company’s new partner extranet site, and will have the opportunity to learn more about Bretford’s GREENGUARD-certified products and other environmental milestones.
Bretford’s stunning 5,100 square foot permanent showroom in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart will have a 1950s/1960s theme with furniture upholstered in cowhide, vinyl and other fabric patterns to recapture the era and personify the early days of Bretford. The vintage style choices also demonstrate the limitless ways to design and finish Bretford furniture to enhance any learning, meeting or work area.
“Our showroom theme represents Bretford’s longevity and expertise in the commercial furniture industry – the result of six decades of hard work and being in business,” explained Mikel Briggs, president of Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. “The application vignettes provide true examples of how Bretford furniture can outfit a school or meeting space to accommodate the latest technologies and create workspaces that are modular, comfortable and environmentally-friendly.”
RHOMBII Training Tables The new RHOMBII training tables make any workspace truly reconfigurable. With built-in power and data modules as well as easy mobility and storage, the new tables quickly adapt to the needs of any higher education or training environment. Perfect for both traditional and contemporary spaces, the RHOMBII training tables are universal in nature. They can be placed in virtually any formation depending on the size, style and needs of the gathering, then easily folded and stored out of the way or moved into other locations. The tables will be available for order in August through Herman Miller North American dealerships and shipping in Q3 2008.
