West Michigan office furniture makers brought home several Best of NeoCon awards from Chicago this week for the industry’s best new products.

Contract Magazine named the winners Monday of the 25th annual Best of NeoCon awards for commercial interior products in 39 categories.

Haworth in Holland won in the Best of Competition for its Openest collection, and Steelcase in Grand Rapids won in the Editors' Choice category for its Susan Cain Quiet Spaces collection — among other awards the two manufacturers won at the event.

Approximately 45 jurors — who are interior designers, architects and facilities management professionals — reviewed nearly 325 products in 22 hours over a three-day period before NeoCon 2014 began.

NeoCon, the largest design exposition for commercial interiors in North America, took place June 9-11 at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.
