We provide the creative direction and functionality, but the client can ultimately create options that perfectly suit their needs using a wide range of finishing and sizing options.”

— Jeff Turk

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — What do you get when you mix unprecedented quality, and a sense of adventure with a relentless desire for innovation? You get a line of office furniture that exceeds expectations on every level, and is poised to completely change the way we think about “off the shelf” contract solutions. Enter Weldmarx™ by Formaspace.

Even if you weren’t able to catch the debut at NeoCon 2017 in Chicago, you’ve likely already heard the buzz about Weldmarx™. This bold, industrial-inspired collection provides a coordinated solution for a wide-range of modern office settings, and allows for ultimate flexibility through customizable options.

“When I say ‘custom’ I mean truly customizable,” said Formaspace CEO, Jeff Turk when describing the limitless options of the new Weldmarx™ collection. “We provide the creative direction and functionality, but the client can ultimately create options that perfectly suit their needs using a wide range of finishing and sizing options.”

This sleek new line is comprised of mix-and-match components including private workstations, sit-to-stand desks, flexible use conference tables, benching, storage solutions and communication boards, all designed to work seamlessly together in any environment.

A History of Innovative Industrial Furniture Design

While many manufacturers have found themselves playing catch-up to meet the quickly evolving needs of the modern office, Formaspace has a firm history of solution-based innovation and the industrial-chic aesthetic that dominates the office design landscape of today. This ability to solve notoriously difficult logistical scenarios has allowed them to approach the office furniture market from an authentic industrial perspective.

“Formaspace has this industrial, lab heritage,” CEO Jeff Turk shared with Business of Furniture Magazine earlier this year. “Brands like West Elm and Crate & Barrel are trying to look like something industrial. This is really our heritage.”

As more and more companies tear down cubicles and opt for more open, collaborative office spaces, a whole new host of furnishing needs has arisen. Much like every other development, Formaspace has made since its inception, the move into office furniture was a natural response to demand. Innovators at Formaspace were first approached by several of the largest furniture dealers on the west coast as well as architects from all over the country. These industry leaders were looking for the style, quality, and durability that Formaspace is known for, but in a format that would be accessible to traditional contract furniture dealers. Formaspace industrial designers were up to the challenge, and after nearly three years of development and testing, the company’s premier line was ready for launch.

Ever driven to go above and beyond for their clientele, the Formaspace think tank didn’t stop at style, quality, and affordability. They wanted their new line to embody the fun, multi-functionality of the modern office culture while also promoting employee health and wellness through effective ergonomic designs.

In addition to more traditional pieces, the Weldmarx™ office line debuted with a funky wood and metal ping-pong table, which functions both as a conference table and two separate, height adjustable collaboration tables. Form, function, fun: a representation of the balance found in the culture of the modern workplace.

Blazing a New Trail

Even with a proven record of solving some of the most difficult industrial design and logistic cases, this new foray into office design was not without risk. It takes more than confidence to plunge boldly into a new market. It takes a sense of adventure. Since acquiring the company in 2006, CEO Jeff Turk has imbued Formaspace with his own adventurous spirit and dedication to exceeding expectations.

“Our industrial laboratory projects have literally taken us from the bottom of the ocean all the way to the top of some of the world’s highest mountains. I knew if we could do that well we could create a line of office furniture that was stylish, but had that same flexibility and durability,” CEO Jeff Turk explained.

A born entrepreneur, Turk sold his first company in high school before setting off to hone his talents at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Both during and after college, Turk worked with dozens of start-ups on 4 continents. His thrill-seeking extends from business ventures to amassing wild experiences from braving strange international cuisine to jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. And that’s just on his days off.

When he’s not transforming small companies into Inc. 5000 favorites, Turk spends his time in service to humanity. He helped obtain over $1 billion in desperately needed debt relief for a West African country and is currently a volunteer search and rescue helicopter pilot for Texas Search and Rescue.

Just the Beginning

If the immediate response to the Weldmarx™ line is any indication of future success, Formaspace is poised to become a pillar of the contract furniture industry. A deep commitment to innovation, quality manufacturing and sustainable practices has set them apart from the status quo and opened the door to limitless office design possibilities, ensuring that no matter where trends move, Formaspace will be there to provide a solution.

10 Trends Driving IT Infrastructure Towards Hybrid Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing

Separation of Responsibilities

Separation of Responsibilities

What's the future of your network infrastructure? It might be time to move towards hybrid cloud computing. Read the 10 trends that are driving the switch!

By 2020, a corporate “no-cloud” policy will be as rare as a “no-internet” policy is today”

— Gartner

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In response to a recent Gartner report predicting ever faster adoption of IT cloud solutions, we look at 10 trends that will drive traditional, on-premises enterprise IT shops toward hybrid cloud computing technology solutions.

First, let’s start off with the provocative prediction by Gartner:

“By 2020, a corporate “no-cloud” policy will be as rare as a “no-internet” policy is today.“

That’s a pretty strong statement — one that should give pause for tech professionals at companies where the IT infrastructure relies entirely on on-premises enterprise data centers at the exclusion of external cloud services.

So let’s unpack this prediction by looking at the top IT infrastructure trends that will drive most of the non-cloud holdouts toward hybrid cloud computing.

1. Enterprise Software Vendors are Aggressively Pushing Customers Toward Cloud Solutions

First up, is a marked shift by the major ERP software vendors towards a “cloud-first” development strategy.

As evidence of this trend, Microsoft recently announced a major restructuring (with thousands of layoffs) that are intended to help its Azure cloud services offering catch up with the industry’s breakaway leader, Amazon’s AWS.

The bottom line? The newest features and most exciting capabilities will appear first on cloud architecture solutions. This means that traditional “meat and potatoes” ERP and CRM packages running on local, on-premises enterprise data centers are at risk of falling into a legacy software death spiral — as vendors nudge enterprises toward more “modern” cloud solutions.

2. Rapid Uptake of IaaS and PaaS Changes the Enterprise Applications Landscape

Gartner expects that revenue from Infrastructure as Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) will grow to more than $55 billion by 2020, a figure that may exceed the revenue from hardware server sales.

This rapid adoption underscores the philosophical change brought about by cloud computing. We’re evolving from a software-centric mindset (where IT teams were responsible for all aspects of deployment, from hardware to software) to a new, multi-provider world where companies access computing infrastructure (IaaS) or fully-tested software stacks (PaaS) to run their data on a “power by the hour” basis.

3. Younger Generation of IT Talent Views Cloud Solutions as the New Normal

Just as younger workers who were born digital (sometimes referred to as digital natives), the youngest generation of IT developers that got their start (often by building websites) have grown up on a steady diet of hacking open source software solutions (such as the popular LAMP stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) together with cloud-based storage solutions from DropBox or Amazon’s popular AWS (Amazon Web services).

In a world where companies are doing whatever they can to attract tech-savvy young professionals living in hip urban areas, companies need to keep in mind that IT job candidates will likely elect to work on modern cloud services implementations, adding additional pressure on companies to adopt cloud solutions.

4. Companies with On-Premises IT Infrastructure Will Opt for Hybrid Cloud Computing Over Pure Cloud Solutions Due to Continuity of Business (COB) and Vendor Control Issues

Do you remember the old saying “Don’t outsource what you can do yourself?”

The meaning of this traditional piece of sage business advice is that once you lose the expertise to understand what the consultants or vendors are doing, you will ultimately lose control of your business process “know how” — leaving you vulnerable to outside factors beyond your control.

This mindset (which is perfectly valid!) is likely one of the main reasons that quite a few companies have yet to adopt any form of cloud technology: they fear they will be relinquishing too much control to outside vendors (and leaving them beholden to vendors who will be difficult to swap out for a different vendor.)

This feeling of “lack of control” is further exacerbated by concerns about COB (continuity of business) when the unthinkable happens — the internet goes down, perhaps for a long, long time.

Given these scenarios, it’s not surprising that Gartner predicts companies with “legacy” on-premises IT infrastructures will choose hybrid cloud computing as their first “baby” step into cloud solutions.

(Even internet giants like Facebook are moving some of their operations off the public cloud by building their own internal, private cloud infrastructure. Read more about how IBM lost the Facebook’s WhatsApp cloud business here.)

As we’ll see next, cloud vendors like Amazon AWS are happy to make the transition to hybrid cloud computing as smooth as possible.

5. Major Cloud Services Vendors Make Transition to Hybrid Cloud Computing Relatively Painless

Given the control and business continuity concerns that businesses have about making a transition to cloud services (see the previous item), vendors like Amazon AWS are going out of their way to make it easy to extend existing on-premises IT infrastructure with hybrid cloud computing capabilities.

For example, Amazon has developed a comprehensive set of tools to help IT departments incorporate many of the benefits of cloud computing by providing software that allows existing tools, such as LDAP directory services or on-premises SAP implementations, to access cloud-based storage seamlessly.

As a result, it’s much easier to make the transition to hybrid cloud computing. (Implementing pure cloud solutions, in contrast, remains a much bigger step, which usually involves re-architecting the software applications themselves.)

6. Today’s Users Have Higher Expectations for Accessing ERP/Big Data Remotely from Mobile Devices

So far we’ve looked at the trends driving companies toward cloud computing from the technology implementation side of things.

That’s only part of the picture.

Olivewood products for the US market

Olive wood bowls for the US market

Olive wood chopping boards for the US market

– Clear, easy to use and attractive –

Eat42 GmbH (None:None)

BAD AIBLING, BAVARIA, GERMANY, May 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With a redesigned design concept, a modern shop system, attractive imagery and optimized for mobile devices, our new website offers all interested parties an overview of all olive wood products such as: bowls, chopping boards, mortars, kitchen utensils and chess boards.

With a new design, we have completely redesigned our website under the title "Art from Nature". The main goal was to create an original design and maximum usability of the website on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

On the new page, we present the olive wood products with new expressive images, so that our customers, partners and interested parties can best be inspired and informed. Conscious of a black background to put the product and its uniqueness in the limelight.

The special raw material olive wood is the basis of uniqueness

Adhesions, various warm shades of brown and fine cracks make olive wood unique and unmistakable. Olive wood also has antiseptic properties, making it ideal for use in your kitchen. All olive wood products are finally treated with low-odor cooking oil. This protects against dehydration and other negative environmental influences, such as heat, cold and moisture. Although it sounds logical, we do not use olive oil as it could become rancid after some time. The products thus remain durable and you will enjoy it for a long time.

Many of our customers use our products as a gift idea, such as a large fruit bowl for the wedding, the extraordinary cutting board for Father's Day or the chessboard for Christmas.

The basis for an original gift is the idea

To inspire here too, you will find a blog on our site, where we inform about the various application possibilities of the products, introduce individual implementations of our customers or present special gift ideas.

Philadelphia Work Injury Attorney Explains Workers' Compensation Benefits and Carpal Tunnel

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

Marc Weinberg specializes in personal injury and employment litigation at Saffren & Weinberg. He provides useful information about carpal tunnel work injuries.

It is worthwhile to speak with a work injury lawyer to see if you may have a workers’ compensation claim and to file it.”

— Marc Weinberg, Partner

JENKINTOWN, PA, UNITED STATES, May 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Workers’ Compensation for Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel injury is a common affliction affecting millions of Americans, particularly those who use their hands frequently at work. If you have symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, it is very possible that you will be able to get workers’ compensation for your condition.

There are a variety of important factors to keep in mind when determining if you are eligible for a workers’ compensation claim for your carpal tunnel injury. You ought to consider your work activities and outside activities.

Furthermore, it is worthwhile to document your injuries as they develop and seek medical diagnosis and advice as well. Lastly, it is worthwhile to speak with a work injury lawyer to see if you may have a workers’ compensation claim and to file it.

What is Carpal Tunnel Injury?

Carpal tunnel injury is a condition in your hands where they experience symptoms such as frequent and consistent pain, burning, numbness, and tingling. As symptoms worsen, you may lose grip strength and also the ability to differentiate hot and cold with your fingers. The symptoms come about as a result of damage to the carpal tunnel, which is a casing that protects the arm’s median nerve.

According to the NIH, the specific medical mechanics of carpal tunnel syndrome are when the hand’s median nerve is squeezed or twisted at the wrist. The median nerve runs along the entire arm to the fingers and is protected by a casing known as the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel can compress or be damaged, resulting in pressure to the nerve and consequently pain in hand.

These symptoms may not immediately manifest themselves, but instead may come about gradually over a prolonged period of time as the carpal tunnel becomes increasingly compressed or damaged.

Carpal tunnel injury is mostly a result of doing the same kind of task with your hands over and over at work over an extended period of time. A common cause is typing, but this syndrome can be caused by a wide variety of tasks that consist of precise and repetitive actions using your hands.

For example, if you use a cash register or your work involves pushing or pressing objects frequently, you may develop carpal tunnel over a period of time if you do get sufficient rest for your hands.

I might have carpal tunnel. What should I do?

If you believe you have been hurt at work and may have carpal tunnel syndrome, the first action to take is to inform your employer about your condition. It is important to make sure that your employer is aware of your problem, both to prevent the condition from developing further and to document the instances and development of the carpal tunnel syndrome.

It is very important to document the development of your injury because often insurers will question the claim if there is not sufficient evidence. When there are other possible causes besides one’s activities at work, it makes the workers’ compensation claim even weaker. That is why it is important to build an evidence trail if you believe you are developing the condition.

If you believe that you have indeed developed carpal tunnel syndrome, it is then important to get medical advice and diagnosis of the condition. There are a variety of medical tests of varying levels of intensity that can determine whether one indeed has carpal tunnel.

A physical examination with a doctor sheds light on the condition through examining physical external and mechanical factors. By looking at the wrist for swelling, tenderness, and discoloration, as well as examining the fingers for atrophy and sensation, the doctor can determine if carpal tunnel syndrome has possibly already developed.

Other more precise mechanical medical tests include the Tinel test, where the doctor will tap on the median nerve to see if tingling results in the fingers, as well as the Phalen’s maneuver, where the patient will flex their wrists and see if tingling results in the first 1-2 minutes afterward.

Precise determination of carpal tunnel syndrome can be done through electrodiagnostic tests of the nervous system, which measure the nerve’s activity and consequently can shed light on if the nerve is weak or otherwise abnormal.

Other medical tests, such as ultrasound, can also shed light on if the nerve has swelled or otherwise been disfigured.

Not only are medical tests important for determining if you have carpal tunnel, but they can also serve as useful evidence in proving your workers’ compensation claim.

How can I get workers’ compensation?

If you believe you may have developed symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, you should then consult with a lawyer to explore whether you have a possible workers’ compensation claim for your injuries.

Workers' compensation is a federally mandated program that can provide you compensation for being hurt at work. While each situation is different, workers’ compensation acts as an insurance program for employees who have been injured as a result of their employment, no matter who is at fault. You may even be able to get relief years after the injury occurred.

The most important aspect of getting workers’ compensation for a carpal tunnel injury is to prove that you were hurt from your employment situation itself rather than from other possible causes, such as medical conditions that are unrelated to your employment. That is why documentation and other evidence remains vitally important.

For example, assume you have developed carpal tunnel syndrome from work as a cashier or typist at work. However, in your free time, you also enjoy playing the piano or writing books. In that case, you will need a trail of evidence as well as a strong case to be made to show that you were hurt at work rather than as a result of your outside activities.

Furthermore, if you have a disease such as diabetes, you will need to show that you were hurt at work as a result of your employment rather than the carpal tunnel injury is a result of a separate medical condition.

Thankfully, it isn’t extraordinarily burdensome to prove that you were hurt at work with a carpal tunnel injury. While it varies by situation, you will often need to show just by a “preponderance of the evidence” or “clear and convincing evidence” that your carpal tunnel injury resulted from your employment.

Many Americans every year are able to get workers’ compensation for their carpal tunnel injury. If you believe you might have been hurt at work and have carpal tunnel, it is worthwhile to explore your options and see if you might be able to get relief and compensation for it.

I’m ready to file a claim. What’s next?

If you believe you are developing carpal tunnel syndrome or may have already developed it as a result of your activities at work, it is important to speak with a work injury lawyer to explore your options and determine if you may be able to receive compensation.

Will Laboratories Embrace Medical Cannabis as Marijuana Legalization Takes Hold?

Within the next 10 years, the legal cannabis market is projected to grow to $50B in annual sales. What does that mean for testing labs? Read more!

Legal North American marijuana sales totaled $6.7 billion in 2016 — a whopping 30% year over year increase as more states have legalized marijuana sales”

— Arcview Market Research

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As legal cannabis markets take root in individual US states and across Canada, laboratory testing companies have the opportunity to provide new quality control, testing and certification services for a wide range of botanical, edible, and infused cannabis products — for both medicinal and recreational uses.

Analysts Project Legal Cannabis Market Will Grow to $50B in Annual Sales Within Ten Years

Times are indeed changing when a 99-year-old Wall Street Brokerage firm conducts its first investor conference on the potential growth of the legal marijuana market. That was the scene this past January as Cowen & Co. briefed well-known institutional investors — including those from Fidelity Investments and Janus Capital Group* — during their “Cannabis Colloquium” event.

*You might want to check the fine print of your 401K investments more carefully from here on out to see if you are invested in cannabis!

According to a report by Cowen and Co.’s market analysts, annual sales of cannabis will skyrocket from $6 billion to a cool $50 billion by 2026 — if (and this appears to be a big ‘if’ at the moment) the Federal government legalizes cannabis sales across the US.

Arcview Market Research is another firm conducting surveys in the cannabis market. Their latest report says that legal North American marijuana sales totaled $6.7 billion in 2016 — a whopping 30% year over year increase as more states have legalized marijuana sales. Arcview projects North American cannabis sales will reach $20.2 billion by 2021 — thanks to an astounding 25% projected compound sales growth each year.

Big Money Makes Investment Bets to Monetize Legal Cannabis Market

Now that twenty-eight states have made medical cannabis available (to a greater or lesser degree), investors are looking at ways to enter the market despite the threat of a Federal crackdown.

A San-Francisco-based startup, called Eaze, is providing an on-demand delivery service that allows its customers (scrupulously called “patients” by Eaze) to order medical cannabis (always called “medicine” by Eaze staff) at the touch of a button. To say that Eaze (which claims to be “the UBER of pot”) is ambitious is an understatement: it’s already developed a smartphone-based application that allows patients to get a medical evaluation by a doctor and, presumably, an immediate prescription for medical cannabis. If this feature takes off, one could imagine Eaze-based doctors displacing a significant number of brick-and-mortar based primary care doctors in the future as well.

To date, Eaze has received $23 million in funding.

There may be many more cannabis start-ups on the way, thanks in part to Gateway, a start-up accelerator based in Oakland that’s offering its upcoming class of budding entrepreneurs (pardon the pun) access to a modern workspace, business coaching services, and a $50,000 investment — in exchange for a 5% stake.

Meanwhile, Cowen and Co.’s investment banking arm helped Canopy Growth Company (a publicly traded Canadian marijuana firm) raise $60 million this past December.

Investors are also combing traditional companies for cannabis opportunities — last year the share price of Scott’s Miracle-Gro Co. rocketed up by nearly 50%. Investors saw potential growth opportunities in its line of plant fertilizers and hydroponic gear, which they felt were well suited to the burgeoning indoor cannabis farming market.

The growth potential for cannabis sales even extends to our pets: The New York Times reports that pet owners are increasingly looking to cannabis-based products to help their pets with a range of conditions, such as anxiety, seizures, and arthritis.

Growing Need for Laboratory Testing Services to Assess Marijuana Potency, Purity, and Quality

Given the increasing consumer demand for a wide-range of cannabis-based botanical and edible products, the laboratory testing market has awoken to find a potential bonanza on their hands.

Consumers are looking for assurance that legally-acquired cannabis products they will ingest are properly tested for quality and efficacy.

Here are just a few of the cannabis testing regimens that laboratories can provide:

Certify that the product delivers the expected levels of marijuana potency by measuring the full range of THC and CBD concentrations in the ingredients
Certify that the product is free from foreign material contamination, including insect or rodent damage, pesticide residue, as well as excessive or dangerous minerals concentrations
Certify that the product meets standards for the amount of bacteria living on non-sterile surfaces by performing microbial bioburden screening tests

What is the difference between THC and CBD?

Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Employee of a NW Firm Importing Products from China That Is Not Abiding to US Anti-Dumping Rules to Call Them About Significant Rewards

"If your employer or a company that you have information about is knowingly dumping their products into the USA in violation of Anti-Dumping Laws anywhere in the Pacific Northwest, please call us." ”

— Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON , DC, USA, May 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging an employee or insider with specific knowledge about a company that is importing any type of product from China that is subject to US Anti-Dumping laws or regulations to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 for a conversation about what could be a whistleblower reward. As they would like to explain the reward potential for this specific type of information can be significant. Recently a whistleblower with this exact type of information received $1.9-million-dollar reward for exposing a company involved in a tariff-customs duties avoidance scheme with bedroom furniture made in China. http://Washington.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

In January 2018 the Department of Justice announced an East Coast based home furnishings company agreed to pay the United States $10.5 million to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by knowingly making false statements on customs declarations to avoid paying anti-dumping duties on furniture imported from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The United States alleged that between January 2009 and February 2014, the bedroom furniture company evaded antidumping duties owed on wooden bedroom furniture that the company imported from the PRC by knowingly misclassifying the furniture as non-bedroom furniture on its official import documents.

Products that could be subject to US Anti-Dumping laws or regulations could include:

* Furniture
* Steel
* Aluminum
* Plumbing parts
* Building material
* Auto parts
* Plumbing pipe
* Agricultural products

According to the Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If your employer or a company that you have information about is knowingly dumping Chinese products into the USA in violation of Anti-Dumping Laws via the ports of Seattle, Tacoma or anywhere in the Pacific Northwest, please call us at 866-714-6466. There is no way Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or any federal agency can stop this huge problem without help. In many instances the rewards for this type of information can be very significant as we would like to discuss. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?” http://Washington.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about a violation of US Anti-Dumping trade rules, significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Washington based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.” http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Washington can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Washington.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com

Lazy Lee USA Spinning Closets Wins 2018 WMIA Wooden Globe Innovator Award

Lazy Lee USA uses easy-to-assemble Lockdowel fastening for their functional, beautiful spinning closets.

With Lazy Lee USA closets assembly is simple using Lockdowel.

Lazy Lee USA uses Lockdowel Fastening to reduce costs, ship RTA and win WMIA (Woodworking Machining Industry Association) Wooden Globe Innovator Award

I’m proud of our team for taking the time to re-engineer the spinning closets. Now anyone, anywhere in the U.S. can have the storage space they need in a beautiful, rotating piece of furniture.”

— Brett Messer, CEO Lazy Lee USA

CEDAR CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lazy Lee USA Spinning Closets has won the 2018 WMIA Wooden Globe Innovator Award using Lockdowel fastening to speed and simplify flat-packed assembly, without glue or screws. Many models of Lazy Lee USA’s rotating storage furniture stand 7.6 feet tall, 3.3 feet wide and 3.3 feet deep, and can be assembled by two people in about an hour. Lazy Lee USA CEO Brett Messer and Product Engineer Logan Owens accepted the award at WIC (Woodworking Industry Conference) 2018 in Lahaina, Hawaii.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as the most innovative woodworking product of 2018,” Messer said. “I’m proud of our team for taking the time to re-engineer the spinning closets and pantries so that anyone, anywhere in the U.S. can have the storage space they need in a beautiful, rotating piece of furniture they can be happy to display and happier to use.”

Lazy Lee USA Spinning Closets won the Innovator award after re-engineering their product with Lockdowel fastening, allowing each piece to be snapped and locked together without screws, without glue and without extra hardware. Lazy Lee USA Spinning Closets are assembled where they will be used, and can be disassembled and moved.

“From our LazyLeeUSA.com website our double-hanging free-standing closets sell for about $1,000, shipping included,” Messer says. “This is about $800 less than what we could sell them for before we implemented Lockdowel assembly. Lockdowel fastening also gives each piece a smooth strong, modular finish. All the connections are invisible.”
According to Messer, the patent-pending Lazy Lee H-on-a-Circle design needs no central pivot point, and when fastened to the floor Lazy Lee USA units don’t even need a stabilizing pin.

The WMIA Innovator Award is presented to a company which currently produces a unique and innovative wood-based product, or utilizes an innovative process to produce a wood-based product using high technology machinery supplied by one or more WMIA-member companies. Lazy Lee USA storage furniture is made with a nested based Biesse Skill (router), Biesse Exil (boring machine), SNX nVision contour edgebander and Cabinet Vision software. These components enable Lockdowel EClips fasteners to be inserted within the wood and allow the Lazy Lee units to be snapped and locked together—without the alternatives such as screws or cams.
