Hondo Nuevo® Series

Norix Furniture, a provider of robust products for challenging environments for more than 30 years, will be introducing its new Hondo Nuevo® line of contemporary lounge furniture at NeoCon 2014 on June 9-11 at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. Attendees are invited to visit with Norix at booth 7-2046 to view a selection of products and to speak to company representatives.

Norix Furniture’s Hondo Nuevo® line of furniture combines superior durability and style with chair, bench and wedge options to create modular seating arrangement. The furniture is specially designed for healthcare, hospitality, education, and other commercial interiors where extreme durability is a must.

According to the NeoCon website, the event is considered North America’s “largest design exposition and conference for commercial interiors,” drawing more than 40,000 architecture and design professionals from around the world to its annual show.

“NeoCon brings together the most notable manufacturers of furniture from around the world, and our new Hondo Nuevo® line of furniture puts us up there with the best of them,” Brad Karl, Norix Furniture Product Manager, said. “Hondo Nuevo® offers a solution for many facilities that are looking for extreme durability and an aesthetically pleasing look. This product provides this along with maximum flexibility that allows facilities to mix and match products in a variety of configurations that are best suited for their particular environment.”

The signature piece of this series is the Hondo Nuevo® Chair which combines ergonomically correct style and comfortable lumbar support and comes with or without arms. All pieces of this furniture line – chairs, benches, wedges, stools – are made of rotationally molded, vinyl seats that are attached with security fasteners to your choice of molded plinth, steel, molded wood grain leg or genuine wood leg base options. Additionally, the pieces are filled with 3 lb. density, polyurethane foam filling, for cushioned comfort.

“In addition to its contemporary design, Hondo Nuevo has been put through the most rigorous testing to ensure that it will hold up against the toughest of environments,” Karl said. “By design, the molded seats are seamless – with no sewn stitches virtually impervious to fluids and easy to clean.”

In particular, Hondo Nuevo is compliant with multiple flammability standards and is resistant to bodily fluids and salt and chlorine solutions. It also is puncture resistant up to 257 pounds per square inch and is GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Gold Certified after stringent testing showed it to be in compliance with the low emissions standards set by UL Environment for indoor facility use. It also is CAL TB 133 Compliant and passes BIFMA 5.4.
