Shaw Contract Group Atlanta Showroom
Showroom + Office
The overall design of the showroom is based on the experience of “Awakening Your Senses”. Each element within the space is designed to be thought-provoking, sculptural and interconnected. The sculptural staircase, called “sense of possibilities,” is modeled after a carpet loom and creates a platform for viewing the company’s floor products. The complex and visually stimulating curves mimic yarn moving through carpet production.
