Luum Textiles Wins
Two Awards at NeoCon 2018


Luum’s new Tactility Collection designed by Suzanne Tick earns a pair of awards at NeoCon, including Best of NeoCon Silver - 21st June, 2018

Luum Textiles announced today that its new Tactility Collection was honored with two awards and was recognized as a HiP Awards finalist at NeoCon, North America’s most important commercial design show held annually in Chicago. Tactility earned Silver in the Best of NeoCon Awards, Textiles: Upholstery category. The collection was named a Winner in the Metropolis Likes NeoCon Awards sponsored by Metropolis magazine.

Tactility was recognized as a Finalist in the Workplace: Fabric & Textiles category of the HiP Product Awards sponsored by Interior Design magazine. Suzanne Tick, Creative Director, Luum Textiles, was honored with a HiP People Award at NeoCon, which honors commercial industry pioneers. Tick was named Winner of the Manufacturer: Leader category.

“We are truly honored to be presented with these prestigious NeoCon awards in recognition of our new Tactility Collection,” said Dave White, Vice President of Luum Textiles. “These awards are a testament to the outstanding creative process and performance inherent in all of Luum’s integrated collections, and to the remarkable vision of our Creative Director, Suzanne Tick, and her team.”

Tactility explores textural and dimensional surfaces that influence the way we experience touch, sight and sound. Through multi-purpose and multi-directional fabrics that respond to both our logical and intuitive needs, Tactility embodies emotional design thinking expressed through a comprehensive color palette.

The collection – Arc Angle, Equilux, Superspun and Interstice – considers the diversity and expressive nature of a surface through fiber, structure, color, pattern and dimension. It offers new classics, modernized through color, texture and pattern. Patterns and constructions are inspired by time-honored textile techniques, such as quilting, moire effects and spinning. The palettes reflect a more nuanced and experimental approach to color by offering a broader selection of softer shades and tech-inspired brights.

The winners of the 2018 Best of NeoCon Competition were announced on Monday, June 11, during an awards breakfast in Chicago. Eighty-one awards were distributed in this year’s competition of contract furnishing products, including eight Innovation Awards. The competition is sponsored by Contract magazine, NeoCon and The McMorrow Reports.

Launched in 2013, Luum Textiles was founded on the belief that design is most successful when the creative process is paired with a clear performance intent. Working by hand at the fiber level, Luum is able to understand – and ultimately influence – how materials will perform in the built environment. The resulting textiles come together as integrated collections designed to deliver an integrated experience. Under the creative direction of Suzanne Tick, Luum is providing architects and designers with a complete interior solution. For more information, visit:
