CHICAGO, June 11, 2018 – SIXINCH North America, the U.S. division of one of the world’s most talked about furniture brands, is integrating advanced digital signage displays from LG Electronics in the SIXINCH Merchandise Mart showroom at NeoCon 2018 here this week. This unique collaboration is suited to designers, architects and industry influencers who support technology’s ability to raise the levels of productivity, well-being and collaboration required by today’s workforce.
“The contract furniture industry is evolving. It’s no longer about a desk and chair; it’s about creating work environments that promote collaborative engagement and productivity. Together with LG, we want to showcase how to combine technology and furniture to create better end-user experiences” said Josh Taylor, marketing director for SIXINCH North America. “By creating custom furniture tailored for work environments and integrating new, cutting-edge display technology, designers are able to build to the space rather than build to the furniture. Technology and furniture should help assist the architecture and design world, not limit it.”
Marrying display technology and office furniture in new ways at the SIXINCH Neocon space are LG 86-inch Ultra Stretch commercial displays optimized for displaying dynamic digital content in crisp 3840 X 600 Ultra HD resolution. Developed for unique installations, the seven-foot-long LG Ultra Stretch display (model 86BH5C) redefines digital signage creativity and flexibility – acting as stand-alone displays or layered together for an artistic video wall display.
“Design plays an integral role in the digital signage industry, and there’s no better place to showcase the collaborative solutions between LG and SIXINCH than at the world’s leading show for commercial design,” said Clark Brown, vice president of digital signage, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions, a NeoCon 2018 sponsor. “Our award-winning displays are helping to redefine the 21st century collaborative workspace.’
Partnering with a brand like LG makes sense for SIXINCH and its customers, according to Taylor. “Their passion to bolster the design community by providing digital displays that integrate seamlessly into today’s collaborative workspaces is impressive. Our goal is to provide the best furniture, tools and support for the A&D community. Custom furniture is only one element of our brand, but it’s important when designing a certain look. Not many in the industry offer this amount of flexibility.”
In addition to the Ultra Stretch displays featured at NeoCon, LG offers the industry’s broadest portfolio of commercial displays. For instance, the state-of-the-art LG OLED displays, including the Wallpaper, In-Glass Wallpaper, Video Wall and curved Open Frame models, offer incredible color, perfect blacks and limitless contrast ratios in unique eye-catching form factors. LG also offers innovative ultra-narrow bezel video wall solutions, transparent color LED Film displays and LED direct-view displays.
SIXINCH (sixinchrocks.com) was was born in 2003, from a passion for innovative materials and progressive design, in Belgium. In 2013, founders Pieter Jamart and Michel Jamart partnered with U.S.-based Wieland Designs, a well-respected company in the furniture industry, and expanded the footprint for one of the most talked about furniture brands in the world. “The name SIXINCH comes from the space between our ears, a mere 150 millimeters – or six inches – wide,” explains Taylor.
Visitors to the SIXINCH Merchandise Mart showroom (Suite 10-164) during NeoCon, June 11-13, will be able to experience LG’s 86-inch Ultra Stretch displays alongside SIXINCH’s thoughtful, sometimes zany, furniture pieces for iconic workspaces.
