A Source for Office Design Ideas
The Best in Modern Office Design
Contract magazine specializes in covering the latest trends in modern office design and corporate interior design sectors. We feature project coverage of both large and small office interiors. There are also examples of furnishings and other products to support the design and function of these spaces, including desking, chairs, workstations, storage units, lighting, flooring, wall treatments, and other technologies that support and enhance the ways that employees work.
Each year, Contract’s May and June issues feature office interiors from around the world, as well as a preview of products that will debut at NeoCon in June in Chicago. At NeoCon, Contract’s editors visit the booths and showrooms of the Merchandise Mart to view these products for modern offices in person. A jury of designers and facilities management professionals also view the products and choose the winners of the Best of NeoCon Awards, which is presented by Contract. Throughout the year, additional workplace design projects and products are featured on the pages of Contract and on our website, and we tap experts in the field of office space design to present to readers their best office design ideas as well as office layout ideas and space planning strategies.
Some notable arena designs that have been featured in Contract magazine include the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and New York by SHoP Architects. The project was led by Krista Ninivaggi, the 2014 Designer of the Year who was honored during the 35th Annual Interiors Awards. Also honored at the Interiors Awards that year was the design of Ghelamco Arena in Belgium by Massive Design. Up to the date news about new stadium projects all over the world, including facilities seen during the 2014 Olympic winter games in Sochi, Russia, can be found in the news section
Additionally, Contract recognizes the best large office (more than 25,000 square) feet and best small office design (up to 25,000 square feet) each year as part of our annual Interiors Awards program. Winners are honored at a breakfast event in New York each January.
