Knoll introduced a range of new products at NeoCon 2013 to celebrate its Modern always™ 75th anniversary campaign. “Tools for Life,” an 11-piece OMA collection for Knoll Studio which was designed by Rem Koolhaas.
The furniture in this dynamic collection can move and change to support a variety of environments and users. The product pictured above, 04 Counter, is a single, attached piece. Its upper two beams can be rotated, transforming the unit into shelves or benches.
Meanwhile, DIRTT presented its refreshed Green Learning Center at Chicago Showroom. The education classroom pictured above used a variety of mixed materials: custom graphics, glass, perforated metal tiles, tackboard and write-away tiles.

- A media wall with technology and embedded with Millwork below. Televisions can be hooked up to computers or iPads The glass in the media wall can also be used for presentations.
- Write-away tiles that can act as a marker board.
- Papers, projects and more can hang from the map rail and tackboards.
