Besides the fact that attending designers should have probably pre-registered two weeks in advance or pay the $25 penalty (which I gladly paid), this year’s NeoCon did not disappoint. In a way, the penalty cost reminded us to prepare for such an event… and that we really are in a recession still. Or probably to keep the design students out of the event.

The NeoCon Website advertises:

“three days of pure energy…”

This year’s NeoCon was the three days of sensory overload.

With the financial crisis, we noticed many sharp turns for companies with an investment into innovation and industrial design. One innovation theme seemed to be a demand for sustainability. More often, we noticed seating created with recycled materials.

Below are pictures from the show of designs that were pleasing to our eyes. Interesting to Pro/Engineer users, the back part of the Setu Chair by Herman Miller, is by far the largest (20 thousand Pro/E features) some may argue.
