NEOCON: THE PARK

The Park is designed to redefine boundaries, enhance our mood & open our minds. We are inspired by the parallels of how we move, gather and connect within different zones of a park & how they correlate to commercial interiors.

The Park

The Park

A renewal of space & spirit, the collection is designed to be transformative-in people, thinking & spaces. The park is a compelling design to infuse elements of outside & influence well-being for everyone experiencing the space. Flexibility compounds through a combination of 9×36 & 18×36 formats and Colorpoint tufting technology.

Creating spaces to gather thoughts or gather together. Varying degrees of pattern, texture & color allow you to design a range of spaces from communal to private .Warm and cool tones with vivid color options reflect renewal and vitality.

 

Product Detail:

Linger provides a moment of calm on the floor.

Drift is a near-solid indulgent bark texture.

Whether it’s gathering in a greeting area, convening at the end of a corridor, or needing a place to reenergize, we all need a new scene, setting or vibe. Softscape and hardscape: the collection features carpet tile, hard surface & broadloom. The Park will improve the quality of space by instilling a quality of life. Most importantly, it will reinforce our belief that balance can be achieved.

NEOCON: ALTERED

Welcome to an altered perspective. We’ve changed the space & redefined the room for an entirely different point of view-where things aren’t quite what they seem. Layer your curiosity with creativity to blur the line between the real & the surreal-redefining how we see.  Not just within a space – but in all that surrounds us.  Design is transformed.

Altered

Altered

An ideal selection for creating spaces with varying degrees of movement or pattern, the collection palette features 12 colors and four styles to provide directional vibrancy in two formats: 9×36 and 18×36. Using alone or blended to build scale or enhance the space.

Here, we conducted an exploratory workshop, immersing ourselves in the process of analog vs. digital.  The purpose: to identify how we process imagery and detect the real from the altered.  We’re anchored by digital enhancement, so working with photographers enabled us to shift both our thinking and designs. Taking what we learned, we made something beautiful – something entirely different.

 

Product Detail:

Analog is a tonal pattern with subtle blurring in 18×36 format.

Distort is a tonal 18×36 with a broken geometric pattern to convey a layered, digitized aesthetic. Glitch provides a sleek streak of concentrated color along the long edge of the 9×36 plank.

Manipulate is a directional 9×36 plank with energetic glitching of color throughout.

Altered is applicable for all market segments and offers superior durability, style and recyclability. The Shaw Contract Group lifetime commercial warranty covers abrasive wear, tuft-bind, edge ravel and delamination.

NEOCON: HAND DRAWN

Intrigued by the simplicity of hand drawn lines, this collection examines line widths, irregularities and imperfections – along with various techniques that capture intimate glimpses of the artist’s personality.  Here, we grant ourselves permission to return to the sketch.  Putting computers and devices aside, we re-engage our instincts, which shaped the design industry before technology.

Hand Drawn

Experimenting with a variety of tools, techniques and papers revealed all pattern inspiration within the collection, which will boast a wide cross-market appeal.  The collection includes three 18×36 tile options and two coordinating broadlooms.  All styles are available in 12 colors.

Product Detail:

Fine Point Tile: small/medium scale and multidirectional

Lineweight Tile: sends large-scale pattern in a new direction.

Stipple Tile:a sophisticated, organic aesthetic and a sense of imperfect variation.

 Broadloom styles:

Conte – small scale pattern/injects movement

Erase – small scale pattern similar to conte but with portions ‘erased’ for added interest

NEOCON: COLLECTIVE TIME RESILIENT

Based on the internal clockwork of humankind, Collective Time Resilient takes cues from the shifting light captured from day to night.

Collective Time Resilient

The Nightingale Gold Award-winning collection was designed specifically with healthcare environments in mind, and given the positive response we’ve received from the market we expect this product to be used across all segments.  There’s additional versatility here, as these styles are intended to coordinate with the Collective Time Carpet collection, a 2014 Neocon Gold recipient.

 

Product Detail

Collective Time Resilient, a collection of sheet vinyl and plank products, is constructed with high performance components, including ExoGuard quartz-enhanced urethane for severe traffic and intensive use spaces.  Each box of plank is intentionally designed for random and fluid movement of color, ensuring that no two installations are alike. Constant sheet is designed with solid color options and a soft gradient that shifts across the width of the product. Styles can be used alone or mixed to create visual interest in a space.

Because healthcare clients prefer a cohesive design that is not visually sterile, Collective Time was designed to provide flexibility within a space. Clients can mix styles to create unique installations, enhance way-finding and provide an additional layer of design.  There are three styles in the collection – each featuring a woven visual texture:

Change: a sheet good with a soft gradient aesthetic.  Available in 6 colors.

Constant: a sheet good providing a solid option .  Available in 12 colors.

Interval: a plank offering the same, soft gradient . Available in 6 colors.

 

Environmental

This collection is FloorScore certified and contributes to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. Additionally, Shaw Hard Surface products and adhesives emit low VOCs, making them safe for even the most sensitive areas such as hospitals and schools. Our products have independent certification from various third party laboratories that ensure safe and clean air post-installation.
