A panel of more than 60 interior designers and facility managers applauded the benefits of Honeywell Nylon's Enviro6ix fiber at NeoCon earlier this month when they awarded the product a Best of NeoCon 2005 Gold Award in the new Carpet Fiber category.
The panel made its decision based on eight criteria: functionality, flexibility, aesthetics, style, innovation, contribution to the industry, pricing and environmental sustainability. Enviro6ix is a fully renewable, third-party certified yarn system containing at least 25 percent recycled content. The product is the backbone of Honeywell Nylon's Zeftron Premium Nylon 6ix Fiber Systems carpets.
According to Tim Blount, manager of commercial marketing products for Honeywell Nylon, winning the NeoCon award "validates our commitment of listening to and meeting the performance, design and sustainable needs demanded by architects, designers, specifiers and end users in the commercial marketplace today."
This year's award competition drew more than 300 entries in 29 product and furnishings categories. Judging was conducted June 9-12. Winners were announced during a special awards breakfast which kicked off NeoCon 2005 on June 13.
