Zintra celebrates design excellence with award-winning products and compassionate new colour range

Zintra Acoustic Solutions, by The Baresque Group, is proud to celebrate its success at NeoCon 2024, held in Chicago, USA, from 10-12 June.

NeoCon, established in 1969, is the premier event of the year for the commercial interior design industry. Held annually in Chicago, it's where the future of design is shaped, showcasing cutting-edge products and services from over 400 exhibitors.  The show attracts a wide range of professionals – from designers, architects and manufacturers, to dealers and more -  providing a high-energy platform for discovering the latest innovations in commercial design, as well as the opportunity for networking and collaboration within the design community.

As a leading innovator in acoustic solutions, Zintra has been a proud participant at NeoCon since 2015, and over this time has been consistently recognised with both new product and booth design accolades. At this year’s event, Zintra not only unveiled a stunning new colour collection, but also impressed the design community by taking home awards in four prestigious categories for its innovative products and booth design.

Award-Winning Innovation

Zintra's dedication to pushing the boundaries of design was recognized at NeoCon with four significant wins:

  • Gold Award in the Best of NeoCon category for Zintra Mesh Baffles. This innovative product's acoustic quills hang from a suspended powder coated mesh. They perfectly balance acoustics with aesthetics, providing a scalable, cost-effective solution for wall-to-wall coverage or dynamic focal points

  • Best of NeoCon Gold award for Zintra Premium Materials. This collection of 18 designs and 6 material finishes, recreate the striking aesthetics of architectural finishes with awe-inspiring realism and superior acoustics

  • Best of NeoCon Silver Award for the six new Zintra Colours. Taking inspiration from nature, the collection impressed the judges with its ability to address the rising desire for workspaces that prioritise wellbeing. The compassionate tones achieved create a calming atmosphere, while advancements in Zintra’s fibre technology have led to a unique 4-layer construction that adds depth, visual interest and enhanced options for colour coordination

  • IIDA Showroom and Booth Design Award for Best Large Booth - a category that recognises and celebrates impactful design that breaks the mould

Collectively, these awards solidify Zintra's position as a leader in design innovation, providing architects and designers with versatile and high-performing solutions.

Nature-inspired Colours

Zintra is further expanding its design potential with the launch of its exciting new colour range. Designed in collaboration with renowned Colour Specialist and Professor, Jada Schumacher, this new collection harnesses the transformative power of nature-inspired colour in design. The six new hues create spaces that evoke warmth, community, and, above all, a return to nature, as an antidote to today’s fast-paced, technology driven world.

‘From the craze for forest baths to remote eco wellness retreats under palapas and jungle canopies, today's society needs nature to transport to a place of nourishing silence far from the tumultuous financial, political, and environmental chaos of the world. The Zintra colour collection honors the serenity of immersing yourself in the quiet calm of nature. (Of course, acoustic silence as a theme is trending and is one thing of many to celebrate about Zintra.)’  Jada Schumacher

Aptly named Parchment, Storm, Meadow, Twilight, Elderberry and Saffron, these compassionate colours promise to endure, empowering designers to create truly unique, connected and inspiring spaces that align with the latest trends and those to come.
