As one of the world’s leading producers of commercial textiles, Maharam needed their showroom in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart to reflect their products’ beauty and artistic flair.
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 a stronger gallery-like feel.
Helios has been contracted each year for Neocon renovations since 2014.

“Attention to detail is key to Maharam and that is one of the reasons we keep coming back to Helios. Helios is impeccable in every aspect of their work.”
