Fiber Art Dressed up the NeoCon Showroom

With inspiration from our ColorEvolution and SCAD fiber art projects, we worked with architecture and industrial design students from DePaul University and University of Illinois at Chicago to “yarn bomb” our showroom. The beautiful yarn types and colors bring a crafted feel to the space with explosions of color.

SCAD Students Inspire Natural Palette Collection

Drawn to the beauty and process of natural eco-dyeing, the Shaw Contract Group design team partnered with the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) to gain more insight into this medium. Through a fiber art competition, students submitted original, innovative work that inspired our new carpet collection, Natural Palette. Industry leaders from Interior Design magazine, SmithGroupJJR, Perkins + Will and Mancini Duffy chose their favorite projects as winners. The winning students will receive a cash prize and be exposed to thousands of worldwide industry professionals — a terrific path for beginning a career. The first place winner will also attend NeoCon, where Natural Palette will be launched.

And the winners are…

FIRST PLACE: Maria Cristina Oreamuno - "Cabuya: The potential of an unexposed delicacy"

SECOND PLACE: Jamie Galloway – Permaculture Collection

THIRD PLACE (tie): Jennifer Moss – The natural process of rusting

THIRD PLACE (tie): Brittany Beste – architectural weaving installations
