Designing the journey..

civita bagnregio

Italy’s Cavita di Bagnoregio sits atop a plateau of volcanic tuff overlooking the Tiber river valley. Shaw Contract Group Creative Director, Reesie Duncan, spent time here earlier this year. Admired for its ancient architecture – the town’s unaltered condition is due to its relative isolation.

Design is a journey that awakens our senses.  As we immerse ourselves in the global community, we are  enlightened by culture and captivated by contrast.  We expand our craft, learning time-honored techniques from long-practiced artisans.  We revel in the process and find balance in the pauses.  All the better to step outside our own world and become part of something greater.  

These words are on the opening page for our 2014 Design Is… magazine, but they represent much more than well-placed copy.  At the Shaw Contract Group offices, we celebrate the sense of place.  It defines where we work, where we play, where we rest and where we reflect.  Design is all around us and channeled through us. Design is Place.
