Global showcases its award-winning Willow™ series at NeoCon 2024


Chicago, Illinois, June 10, 2024: Global will highlight the versatility of its award-winning Willow seating series at NeoCon. Willow is a 2023 Gold Nightingale Award winner, a 2023 Best of Year Honoree, and 2023 HiP Award Honoree.

Designed in collaboration with patients and healthcare professionals, Willow™ sets a new benchmark for seating. While the chair’s welcoming form and thoughtful detailing make it ideal for waiting and patient spaces, the elegant and versatile seating easily expands to offices, meeting rooms, cafes, common areas and learning spaces. When minutes turn into hours, the chair’s ergonomically contoured seat and back provide lasting comfort.

Willow can be partially or fully upholstered with optional sealed seams on the back and a moisture barrier on the seat for healthcare or public spaces. Mix and match with polypropylene or upholstered seats and backs. An extensive range of models, finishes and upholstery options support modular and stand-alone applications. 

Users’ needs differ. Willow is available with two arm options: waterfall or grip assist. The ergonomically curved back and contoured seat provide even support without creating pressure points or restricting movement. 

Willow combines comfort and durability with the flexibility of a modular seating series. Individual seats can be joined together with corner, end and in-line linking tables to suit the allocated space and application.

Willow’s extensive range of models, finishes and upholstery options provide countless creative possibilities. Its versatile and stackable design makes Willow the “everywhere” chair for workplace, education and healthcare spaces.
