At NeoCon 2022: It’s Helm by Halcon
"Helm by Halcon." Rolls off the tongue rather nicely, don't you think?
I imagine Halcon President Ben Conway would agree, as he was all smiles while accepting the Best Of NeoCon 2022 trophy in Chicago this morning.
For Conway, Helm represents a fusion of the functional with the beautiful: "We set out to fill the need for a functional executive table desk that packed in all the technology," he said. "so we were thinking about the beautiful form it should take."
The synergy Conway alludes to is a veritable sculpture of a desk, with a signature surfboard shape that's as thin as a wave's edge.
Designer Markus Jehs of Jehs + Laub concurs. When he took the podium, he also emphasized the sculptural aspect: "Most height-adjustable tables are very heavy. Helm was all about being light and transparent. It's little sculpture."
As seen above, Helm has a modular aspect too. The metal base supports a full range of worktops and surface materials: standard wood, premium wood, metal backpainted glass, and the unique FENIX NTM, an acrylic-based resin that uses nanotechnology for an anti-fingerprint surface with low light reflectivity.
And Helm not only offers an elegant sit-stand mechanism, it also incorporates power and data without compromising on the look.
This includes wireless charging and a razor-thin valet drawer: "Perfectly proportioned, appointed with luxurious materials, sleekly integrated with technology, and unexpectedly equipped with an adjustable-height surface, Helm is the ultimate executive desking solution."
