Innovative BioFit Design Concepts Achieve Major Awards

BioFit Engineered Products, a worldwide leader in furnishing solutions, has recently been awarded several prestigious awards from key industry leaders.

Most recently, BioFit’s SwingSeat™ chair received Buildings magazine’s Grand Prize in Seating Solutions. This distinction was awarded at NeoCon 2011 in Chicago, where SwingSeat made its debut. The unique SwingSeat™ features a swiveling tripod base with pivoting arm that secures to any stable vertical surface, making it perfect for environments where space is at a premium. SwingSeat’s breakthrough design ensures that the chair is always there when it is needed—and out of the way when it’s not. Available in a variety of chair/stool configurations and wide range of upholstery options, this innovative seating solution is also backed by a 13-year warranty.

BioFit’s Afton™ table received Finalist designation in Buildings Furniture Systems and Accessories category at NeoCon. With a flowing S-shape that recalls the river after which it is named, the Afton™ is ideal for a wide range of institutional settings. Constructed with torsion-bar hinges for ease in folding, ToughEdge™ for sanitary cleaning, robotically-welded steel frames, contoured ABS seats, and industrial-grade wheels for better mobility and storage, the patent-pending Afton is GREENGUARD® certified and backed by an industry-leading 13-year warranty.

These awards come hot on the heels of recent Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX), established by Design Journal to recognize groundbreaking design in the furnishing industry. This year’s award went to BioFit’s Avant™ folding table, which features a unique, faceted table-top shape to enhance communication and help users interact better. Available in 10’ and 12’ lengths, Avant features a torsion-bar hinge for ease in folding and storing, ToughEdge™ treatment for sanitary cleaning, and a durable, robotically-welded steel frame, indestructible ABS seats contoured for comfort, and industrial-grade wheels for ease in mobility and storage. Like the Afton, the patented Avant is GREENGUARD® certified and carries a 13-year warranty.

This recent accolade is not the first ADEX award for BioFit—in 2010, BioFit’s Skoop™ polyshell chair was awarded a Platinum ADEX. Design Journal recognized the Skoop as an edgy, yet practical, alternative to conventional multipurpose seating, combining vivid colors and contour with ergonomic performance and LEED® compliance. The Skoop features rugged one-piece shell construction, waterfall front and flexible backrest plus numerous caster, base and performance options. The Skoop is LEED®-compliant for use in commercial interiors and backed by a 13-year warranty.
