Carolina - Silver Award - Sorta
Carolina’s Sorta is another innovative crossover seating product. We love how versatile the Sorta is. It can be used as a stool or seat and is a great addition in both education and healthcare settings and so many other applications. Sorta came home from NeoCon with a Silver award for Education Solutions and is also an Interior Design HIP Winner for 2022.
“Sorta was imagined for flexibility, blurring the lines between healthcare, workplace, and education to create a true solution that can adapt to a user’s needs. This playful seating design showcases a wide variety of color options, usage options, and innovation. Caregivers can lean back, settling into a time of connection with a patient or coworker. Patients and caregivers can use the back as an armrest for blood-draw, or a convenient desk for paperwork. Students can use the arm as a work surface to accomplish tasks. However you work, Sorta works with you.” – Carolina

HON’s Cofi seating line came away from NeoCon with a Gold Award in Conference Seating.
