Design Journey: Novice & Master, this year’s Best of NeoCon Silver Award-winner for modular flooring, was inspired by our designers’ travels to Cambodia and Laos.
“Design Journey started out as a research project within our design group where our designers really have a passion for travel and craft. We explored the idea that different craft cultures in the world are really in danger of dying and being extinct,” says Reesie Duncan, Creative Director
The design team explored the differences between generations: the novice weaver who is learning the craft vs. the master weaver who has perfected it. The Novice part of the collection is inspired by the inconsistencies in the weaves while precise patterns and ornamental weavings were the inspiration behind Master.
