Shaw Contract introduces ground-breaking flooring system

Shaw Contract is excited to introduce the Inside Shapes Design Tool, a digital toolkit that empowers designers to create a floorscape using the Inside Shapes collection.

In its first collaboration with Stockholm-based design studio, Form Us With Love, Shaw Contract challenged how the standard 24” x 24” carpet tile might be approached in a new and unique way. With Inside Shapes, a floor becomes a canvas for creative expression—unlimited shape and color combinations can be both simple and abstract. Designers can create the perfect solution for any environment, and the Design Tool makes this even simpler.

The Inside Shapes Design Tool allows architects and designers to visualize all of the possibilities the collection allows. Users can begin with a blank canvas, easily change colors or re-arrange tiles from a series of idea starters, or use a premix option to seamlessly produce a dynamic layout. This interactive tool will enable the creation of compelling designs that express a particular vision.
From offices to schools, retail to hospitality interiors, today’s architects and designers are seeking ways to enliven the human experience in commercial spaces. Inside Shapes turns a passive product into an active decision, allowing for a variety of intentions and feelings in public areas.

Designers in the United States and Canada can participate in the Inside Shapes Design Tool Giveaway by signing up to use the tool from April 15-May 10, 2019. Users who create an account are automatically entered to win a Silicone watch from TID. Users who create a flooring design, download the design and post to Instagram with the hashtag #projectpizzacontest will be entered to win a custom Leather TID watch.
