The Noble Materials flooring collection from Shaw Contract Group takes its inspiration from sacred geometry and ancient alchemy.
The new commercial carpet collection has been designed by studying and interpreting how stone is harnessed from nature, cut into slabs, and integrated meticulously into the foundation of a building. Shaw Contract Group’s designers also studied the charts and diagrams that ancient alchemists plotted to transform base metals into noble metals, such as gold, silver and copper.
Describing the Noble Materials collection as an unexpected pairing of movement and texture, Shaw Contract Group Sales Director Aaron Martin says the base of this collection is quite natural, with opulence occurring through intentional tile seams and the final addition of lustrous polished metal.
Noble Materials delivers luxury and opulence through a combination of 24" x 24" (61cm x 61cm) carpet tile and broadloom formats constructed using Colorpoint tufting technology. Smooth surfaces in natural tones form the base of this collection, which features four 24x24 tile options, two traditional broadlooms, and two upcoming woven broadlooms.
Noble Materials marks Shaw Contract Group’s entry into the woven market, using a velvet weave process to achieve richly textured styles. The nine-colour palette features moments of gleaming metal for added warmth and glamour.
