Watson | Award-Winning Design

6 mins December 2, 2021

For more than 50 years Watson has designed and built revolutionary and award-winning workplace solutions for some of the most dynamic and innovative companies.

At Watson it’s all about the details and personal touches. From unique design elements and sustainable materials to the way we build and deliver our products, you’ll see the Watson difference. We aren’t furniture assemblers; we turn design concepts and raw materials into finished products entirely under one roof to ensure you get the right solution made for your space. 

Watson has won many awards for the way we manufacture our products and the design that drives them. 


NeoCon is the leading tradeshow for commercial design. In the last decade, Watson has won 11 Best of NeoCon awards. Most notably, Watson was the first company to win five NeoCon Gold Awards in a single year for Haven and C9 Trolley in 2021.
