Hondo Nuevo® Series

Norix Furniture, a producer of robust furniture made especially for continuous-use environments – including colleges and universities – will showcase its new Hondo Nuevo® line of contemporary lounge furniture at the Association of College Unions International – 2014 Annual Conference which runs April 6-10 in Orlando, FL.

Hondo Nuevo® is unique furniture that combines superior durability and style with chair, bench and wedge options to create modular seating arrangements. Hondo Nuevo® is specially designed for higher education facilities and other commercial interiors where extreme durability is a must. (Continue reading below video)

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.

“What makes this line special is that it has a contemporary design that fits well in facilities that want an aesthetically pleasing look and feel,” Brad Karl, Norix Product Manager, said. “On the other hand, we designed this line to stand up to the most challenging environments – in particular those facilities where furniture is used on a near 24-7 basis.”

ACUI conference attendees are invited to visit booths 515-519 to speak with Norix representatives and see the Hondo Nuevo® line, along with the following:

Forté™ Lounge Arm Chair – Forté™ lounge chairs are made with or without arms and come with the choice of steel, wood or molded bases and an upholstery option.

Folding Table – This product is versatile, portable and suitable for staff areas, classrooms and training facilities.
