Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) June 13, 2014
The new MVMT™ ergonomic seating line from BioFit Engineered Products was recognized with two awards this week in Chicago during NeoCon 2014, the North American contract furnishing industry’s largest annual show. In a juried competition sponsored by Contract magazine, the MVMT line was selected as a 2014 Best of NeoCon Innovation Award winner, while judges from Buildings magazine chose the seating line as a 2014 Product Innovations Merit Award winner in the Seating Options category.
Developed by BioFit in collaboration with award-winning designer Bruce Fifield, of Studio Fifield, Milan, Italy, the MVMT line was created for use in the technology, laboratory, healthcare and industrial sectors, with crossover applications in the office market. It combines a unique aesthetic and intuitive user controls with the durability and technologically precise seating design for which BioFit is known. In response to receiving the awards, BioFit president Ed Metzger stated: “We’re extremely honored to be chosen from a field including entries from the best and most talented seating designers and manufacturers in the world. Bruce [Fifield] and our internal team set out to create a chair that would revolutionize the user experience with a look to enhance customers’ corporate image, and these awards certainly help validate our efforts.”
