In a major coup for authentic Australian design, AFA Member, Luxxbox, has taken out a number of awards at NeoCon 2019, the world’s leading trade show event for the commercial design industry.
Making their NeoCon debut this year, Luxxbox showcased a number of new products from their extensive acoustic lighting and furniture ranges including Blade and Waffles Discs and Leaves.
NeoCon, held annually at The Merchandise Mart in Chicago, attracts more than 51,000 visitors over three days. This year’s event was an important opportunity for us to introduce new products to an international audience and receive critical feedback from peers and clients.
“We’re extraordinarily proud of the achievements of Luxxbox as their success demonstrates the ingenuity of Australian design and innovation at its very best”, said Australasian Furnishing Association CEO, Patrizia Torelli.
“The trade show marked a significant milestone for Luxxbox as we continue to expand into the North American market, providing holistic acoustic solutions to designers around the world” says Luxxbox Managing Director Jason Bird
Running in conjunction with the event, are a number of internationally-recognised awards in which the Australian design studio was nominated. Luxxbox’s latest noise-cancelling acoustic light, Blade, was awarded 2019 Honoree in Interior Design magazine’s HiP Awards, as well as Editor’s Choice and Grand Prize in BUILDINGS Product Innovation awards.
Receiving critical acclaim from the jury, Luxxbox also walked away with Silver for Acoustic Solutions in the Best of NeoCon Awards, with judges praising the depth of the acoustic lighting range, Casambi bluetooth dimming integration and environmental-sustainability practices employed by Luxxbox.
“We strive to ensure our products combine unique manufacturing techniques and unconventional materials, with a thought-provoking design integrity that champions authentic Australian design on a global scale. This aesthetic is recognised by design enthusiasts and professionals the world over,” said Mr Bird.
