Inside Shapes is the result of the shared expertise and imagination between Shaw Contract and Form Us With Love. The mission was to design a creative response to enhance how commercial environments feel and function today.
In its first collaboration with Form Us With Love, Shaw Contract has challenged how the standard 24″×24″ carpet tile might be approached in a new and unique way. Rather than designing a new collection, the creative collaboration between the two organisations opened up opportunities to think differently about what a carpet tile could be – beyond variations of pattern and colour. The simple reframing of the tile as an object, not a surface, created new possibilities for an innovative toolkit that allows designers the freedom to design and not just specify.
Inside Shapes is the result of the shared expertise and imagination between Shaw Contract and Form Us With Love. The mission was to design a creative response to enhance how commercial environments feel and function today. Shapes, colours and shades can be chosen in 17 pre-mixed options or curated individually for a completely custom solution. Utilising a CNC machine to cut each shape that makes up a 24″×24″ carpet tile, Inside Shapes is full of personality just waiting to be brought to life.
Along with Inside Shapes, Shaw Contract will also provide a digital tool that allows architects and designers to visualise all of the possibilities Inside Shapes allows. Users can begin with a blank canvas, easily change colours, rearrange tiles from a series of idea starters, or use a pre-mix option to produce a dynamic layout seamlessly. 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 seek ways to enliven the human experience in commercial spaces. Inside Shapes turns a passive product into an active decision, allowing for various intentions and feelings in public areas.
