MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Jun 14, 2011) - In its industry premiere, Seeyond™ Architectural Solutions won two top awards in the prestigious Best of NeoCon® 2011 competition, sponsored by Contract Magazine.
Seeyond won a Gold Award in Architectural Products and also was among a handful of entrants honored with an Innovation Award. NeoCon is the leading exposition for the commercial interior design and furnishings industry.
Seeyond delivers a comprehensive solution that integrates the process of parametric design and digital fabrication of architectural specialty features... providing total control of the outcome and an empowered experience of true design freedom for designers and architects.
"It's a great way to start a new business," said Nat Porter, general manager of Seeyond. "We're extremely pleased that the judges recognized the power of this innovative design-and-building system. We look forward to demonstrating it to architects and interior designers in the months to come."
Seeyond allows users to create virtually any interior design feature using a proprietary specification tool. Seeyond then uses data from the user's design to drive the manufacturing process. Flat stock is precisely cut, then folded in origami-like fashion to create individual modules. The modules combine with no tools or visible hardware to create a self-structuring system. A variety of options for custom color, lensing patterns, printed graphics, material appliqué and internal lighting allows for even greater design freedom.
Seeyond will be available nationally, with sales representation initially in four markets: New York City, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Seattle and Portland. Expansion of sales support into other key markets is expected over the next six to 12 months.
"Seeyond is a whole new way of bringing custom interior structures to life," Porter said. "We've put the designer in complete control and eliminated virtually all of the risk, allowing designers and architects to articulate differentiated space with confidence."
This new user-driven design-and-building system from Seeyond Architectural Solutions is patent pending. For more information, visit www.seeyond.com or call 800.508.5455.
