Shaw Contract Group recently opened its new regional showroom in Singapore. It is located in the central region where 2562 square feet of the space will be used to showcase its full portfolio of inspired designs and can be used to host meetings and events for industry partners.
Stepping into the space, one would immediately notice its unique mix of patterns on the ground. More than 10 carpet types were used on the flooring to showcase the different carpet products throughout the showroom. Tiled carpets were laid such that the multitude of colours available to customers is displayed and the carpet tiles could also be easily replaced to display new collections in the future.
Combined with the expertise of local award-winning architect firm, SCA Design, most recently awarded the Honourable Mention at the 2015 Asia Pacific Property Awards, the new showroom meets high standards of environmental sustainability and is also Green Mark certified by BCA Green Mark Scheme in Singapore; consistent with other Shaw Contract Group showrooms around the world.
The showroom in Singapore optimises daylight, by using glass panels instead of solid walls, ensuring a decreased use in artificial lighting, thereby minimising energy consumption. The glass panels also allow for a more collaborative meeting space, where integrated interaction can occur among guests and staff.
The largest recycler of post-consumer carpet in the world, Shaw Contract Group has been recognised for its innovative products which have consecutively picked up awards for their design every year in the past decade.
“As a firm champion of the environment, we weave sustainability into the fabric of our business – our products, manufacturing process, business operations including the space we work and live in, whilst ensuring we deliver the needs of our clients with high-performing products,” says Dan Clark, managing director (Asia Pacific). “We are confident our new showroom will better serve our clients within the region and allow us to connect as a community.”
During the opening party of the new space, Shaw Contract Group showcased their latest collections, The Park and Noble Materials. “The Park collection reinforces the idea and demonstrates that through great design, balance can be achieved in the spaces we gather, play and escape while the Noble Materials collection showcases geometry and meticulously plotted diagrams,” shared Kimberly Morgan, Senior Designer for Global Workspace.
Singapore joins London, Atlanta, Shanghai, Beijing, New York and other global design hubs where Shaw Contract Group’s presence is a catalyst for design excellence. Major Shaw Contract Group’s clients in Asia have their business headquartered in Singapore or operate out from Singapore. From fortune 500 companies to local universities and hospitals, the business and organizations that impact the local economy will have access to this creative space – giving them the opportunity to work with architects and designers to continue developing commercial interiors that will attract employees, students, visitors, and customers.
