MUSCATINE, IA—The HON Company, which just made its first appearance at The Office Exhibition in Dubai, is returning with official recognition from the annual show’s Middle East Office & Hospitality Product Design Competition. Nucleus, one of the manufacturer’s premier seating solutions, received Honorable Mention in the Seating: Ergonomic Desk/Task Category, cited for excellence and innovation in product design by the IIDA judges who managed the awards program.

“This is a tremendous honor for us,” says Mark Roumfort, vice president, product management and development for The HON Company. “We’re certainly proud of our product portfolio, and this international recognition really underscores HON’s core values of practical design, reliable performance, and understanding the needs of our customers.
