9to5 Seating is proud to announce that the Mila conference and executive chair has received a Product Innovations award from BUILDINGS Media. The product is a member of an elite group of products that will be showcased in the August 2018 issue of BUILDINGS.
The BUILDINGS editorial staff evaluated submissions in terms of their innovation and contribution to productive workplaces. The staff then evaluated finalists in person at the NeoCon 2018 show in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. Mila received the Merit award in the Seating category.
“We’re very proud to announce the Merit award for Mila. The modern, elegant and sophisticated design of the Mila is only enhanced with its unique fingertip lever control mechanism, which we feel the A&D industry will really respond to” said Dara Mir, President of 9to5 Seating, “The award recognizes what the 9to5 Seating team has already been saying, ‘It’s going to be a hit!’”
Mila will be available December 2018 and will be orderable through the 9to5 Seating contract dealer network.
What a thrilling NeoCon! Witnessing the 50th year of NeoCon was exciting and fruitful for 9to5 Seating. We featured new products, extensions to our very popular Lilly series, new Vivid fabric card, new M4 mesh card and twelve new plastic colors. We also hosted our first Sips + Seating party on Monday, June 11, with food, drinks and special gift. We, also, gave away custom chairs to twelve lucky winners for our NeoCon Selfie Giveaway Contest! On top of all that, our new Mila chair (available end of this year), was a finalist for the BUILDINGS Media Product Innovations 2018 Award. What a whirlwind!

This year at NeoCon, 9to5 Seating will be revealing new products, product extensions and material options, including new ExpressShip fabric options. With so much to share, we didn’t want to limit ourselves around one tagline. It’s about a mantra and how 9to5 Seating answers the needs of our customers and what drives them. Stop by our showroom on the 10th floor, #109, and find out what we mean.
Also, don’t miss our Sips + Seating party Monday night, June 11, from 4-7 p.m.! You can RSVP on our Facebook page.
9to5 Seating launches new brand campaign to underline its dedicated approach to providing quality and value to its customers, by ingraining the approach in every aspect of its operation.
The objective of the brand campaign is to communicate the company’s new tagline, “The difference is in the details” both internally and externally. 9to5 Seating worked with a Los Angeles boutique marketing agency to explore the company’s culture, mission, values and positioning. An internal brand campaign will be launched to staff, while consumers will experience a campaign that allows them to visualize the brand’s new tagline.
Dara Mir, President of 9to5 Seating said, “Our new company tagline emphasizes how 9to5 Seating is steadfastly committed, at every point in our operation, to provide the best quality and value for our customers. We believe that by sweating the small stuff and doing all the little things right, we’re able to offer a better chair at a better value. We think that’s pretty huge.”
This campaign follows the success of the latest advertising campaign, “The Secret is Out,” which focused on the unique company history, its vertical integration and reshoring priority of 9to5 Seating. The campaign was launched in Business of Furniture magazine and was also featured at this year’s NeoCon. The new brand campaign includes digital and social media promotion.
