MODERN EDIT COLLECTION: A 2016 Shaw Contract NeoCon Launch

Here we’vve created a mixed installation of two colors of tile style Ornate.

Connecting to the past. Re-framing the concept of heritage. Tactile materials are disrupted by elements with an industrial edge, and textile craft is emboldened with unconventional scales and imperfect finishes. Modern Edit introduces three new 18×36 carpet tile designs and two broadlooms, thoughtfully designed to reveal a distressed opulence.
The styles in this collection reflect a sense of place and history by paying homage to textile heritage. Here, luxury is defined artisanal deconstruction and unexpectedly delicate details as we expose the tension between femininity and structure and revisit heritage with threadbare, yet luxurious authenticity:
Narrative Tile is a refined, discreet, archival texture with a sense of the past with a modern take.
Rethread Tile creates a threadbare texture of scale, aesthetically broken-in but with the integrity of something new & untouched.
Ornate Tile is a subtle approach to adornment – reminiscent of Persian textiles with sculpted texture.
Edition is a small scale broadloom pattern with inlaid texture and high contrast for a subtle plush field.
Inherit is a large scale rhythmic broadloom design where stitches and structures become looser to reveal a confident pattern element.
“Merging design across workplace and residential segments drives desire to create a sense of place, lineage or personal history,” Said Reesie Duncan, VP Design. “This collection speaks to the aesthetic psychology of a comforting unspoken narrative.”
The collection palette features neutrals & colors to infuse the collection’s traditional foundation with a fresh visual approach. Modern Edit transcends the barriers of residential and commercial aesthetics to appeal to a broader audience of application. The collection allows you to move from hard surface to carpet tile and custom area rugs to create an innovative & cohesive product story.
At Shaw Contract, we believe that everything matters. Constructed with EcoWorx tile backing (broadloom styles on UltraLoc) & Eco Solution Q nylon, the products in this collection are Cradle to Cradle Silver & assessed for impact on health + the environment. EcoWorx products are recyclable, contribute to LEED & backed by Environmental Guarantee. The Shaw Contract lifetime commercial warranty covers abrasive wear, tuft-bind, edge ravel and delamination.

Study in Motion: Four new tile designs create movement and define public space

Study in Motion: Four new tile designs create movement and define public space 

Offering a new solution for open environments, Shaw Contract Group’s new 24”x24” carpet tile collection, Flight, creates movement and defines space in environments free of structural constraint. Bold patterns inspired by how we move interplays with color, stripe and a shifting ombre – achieving a directional impact within a vast space. Drawing inspiration from the pavers of ancient plazas and the mathematics behind people moving from one location to another, the designs fold movement into static statements and provide new options for building scale and dimension.

“This collection is the result of our interest in the science of how people move through space. We explored computational studies of exactly how people move airports, and immersed ourselves in Levy Flights, a garrulous mathematical model which echoes our movement through space and time,” said Shaw Contract Group Creative Director, Reesie Duncan.

Large scale and open, public spaces are typically impacted by architecture. Flooring serves as a third facade, in addition to walls and ceilings. Free of structural constraint, Flight assists with way-finding and defines movement – places to walk, places to pause, places to gather.

Designed for public ambiance and engineered for heavy foot traffic, Flight provides a comprehensive flooring solution, featuring four tile products that are varied yet connected. Available in 13 colors, the palette features warm and cool tones as well as bold color options, which create varying degrees of movement and energy depending on how the styles are used within a space.

Products include:

  • Pause Tile: a static style, defining quieter moments within space
  • Step Tile: an ombre that exudes movement and can be stretched, injecting directional energy
  • Interact Tile: a stripe, akin to a quickened stride – building scale, it directs the eye and assists in wayfinding.
  • Vantage Tile: a bold, geometric shape adds a large glimpse of interest to the floor.

All styles are 22 ounces and are constructed of EcoSolution Q fiber and EcoWorx backing, offering a lifetime commercial warranty covering abrasive wear, tuft bind, edge ravel and delamination. Cradle to Cradle Silver certified, completely recyclable and manufactured with recycled content, all products offer a sustainable flooring solution and contribute to LEED certification.

Feel a Forceful Connection with Collide

Inspired by colliding patterns, splits and fractures in nature, this collection yields a truly visual collision of pattern and color. Taking cues from The Radical persona in our 2012 ColorEvolution forecast, the collection exemplifies the unexpected beauty that results from materials and how they are transformed by colliding circumstance.

“Again, we find ourselves looking to nature and how it can impact design. Here, destructive forces were an inspiration, but just as it is metaphorically and geographically, when materials undergo a destructive process, the result is often beautiful and inspiring, ” said Reesie Duncan, Creative Director for Shaw Contract Group. “The products in this collection feature varying degrees of movement as well as cool and warm elements which work beautifully together or independently.”
