Introducing the Redefined Collection: Fashion Classics for the Floor
Working with design inspiration from Corgan Associates, Mannington Commercial has created The Redefined Collection, fashion classics reimagined as 18"x36" modular carpet. Made up of six products inspired by houndstooth, tweed, hexagons, and other classic patterns, Redefined is texturally rich and visually stunning, yet designed to play a supporting role in an interior space.
Mannington and Corgan first teamed up on product design last year, with the launch of the Connected Collection, a breakthrough in using carpet to shape spaces in the open floor plans of today's corporate projects. Building upon this success, the Redefined Collection – which launches at NeoCon 2013 – is also designed for adaptive work spaces.
"Technology and community have blurred the lines in corporate offices,” said Lindsay Wilson, Interiors Principal at Corgan Associates, who led a Corgan design team that included Stephen Park and Jaquelyn Fossier. “Where there used to be hard lines between public and private space, now we all think in terms of collaboration, of projects, and of anywhere/ anytime productivity."
"The impulse behind Redefined was not only to refresh classic patterns for today, but also to bring the past into the present in a way that is both timeless and timely. The patterns can be used to emphasize the energy of a marketing area or the sophisticated quiet of a boardroom, with beautiful transitional and way finding cues between," she said.
Through a smart use the 18"x36" modular carpet format, Redefined's textural patterns appear and disappear, fading in and out of focus, enabling a custom look without requiring intricate, costly installation methods. In fact, the patterns are designed to effortlessly create an elegant random effect when installed in a simple, linear fashion that requires no complex planning.
The sophisticated palette of 16 running line colors, with or without accent colors, helps ensure that these classics will remain relevant in project installations, for years to come. Perfect not only for new corporate construction and renovation, but also for retail, higher education, hospitality and healthcare.
