As one of the world's leading producers of commercial textiles, Maharam needed their showroom in Chicago's Merchandise Mart to reflect the beauty and artistic flair of their products.  Helios developed a system of demountable hangers that allowed Maharam to display its fabric in a way that felt like a permanent art gallery installment, but allowed flexibility for change when office space would be required. The fabrics were hung against a pristine white backdrop, allowing them to really stand out. Six white benches were also designed and placed around the showroom, giving it an even stronger gallery-like feel.

Helios has been contracted each year for Neocon renovations since 2014.
