Depicted below is a selection of innovative chair designs that were launched at NeoCon 2011. These latest trends in chair designs will help you in outlining the classic form the usual.

Davis Ginkgo

One of the latest chair designs taut at the NeoCon show this year was the Ginko chair by Davis Furniture. It is designed by Jehs and Laub and is a new classic plywood shell occasional chair.

Chakra Chair

As the name suggests, the Chakra Chair by Karim Rashid is specially designed to enhance wellness after a long day of sitting by supporting the body’s charkas, or pressure points. It is innovative and also a bit more radical. It explodes the seat and backrest into perfectly positioned segments.

Leaf Modular

The Leaf Modular series from Arcadia are manufactured in maple, oak and walnut. This lounge and love seat models feature a floating seat that is supported by a minimalist metal frame that adds to its sophistication and overall appeal. Its metal frame is also available in options such as chrome and powder coat finish.


This unique lounge seating is from Allermuir’s Freeflow series. Its organic and curving features and distinctive bull-nosed upholstery offers a contrast to more formal modular bench systems. In addition to being a stylish, striking and distinctive bench system, Freeflow reflects performance and comfortability while also not compromising with innovative designs.
