On the eve before NeoCon officially began, the innovative Rio Connection Module was selected by Interior Design magazine as a HiP Award Winner for the Products – Outdoor category.

Designed to connect several different bench configurations into one seamless, flowing element, the winning Rio Connection Module is unique in its form, mimicking the curves of a natural river. This mesmerizing, sculptural bench series is crafted from durable powder coated aluminum.

The HiP Awards, reaching its sixth annual installment, honor industry icons and forward-thinking products at NeoCon, selecting specific designs for their outstanding creativity. Interior Design editor in chief Cindy Allen hosted the awards ceremony as well as the publication’s live coverage of NeoCon, where she interviewed Salvadó to discuss Rio’s latest introductions.
