A differentiated approach to design.

Our designers share a belief in the creative process and a deeply-rooted passion to explore new design methods, delivering solutions to the market that have impacts on where we work, learn, heal, and live.

Our Design Studios

Specialised studios allows us to concentrate on

unique solutions for each market. 

The ability to effectively come together and to retreat for focus requires a new approach to how we create a positive working environment.

Flooring provides the foundation for communal spaces- including government buildings, schools, multi-family housing, and healthcare environments.

Our innovative designs transform the spaces we inhabit as we rest, travel, and recreate.

Shaw Contract products are installed in more than 80 countries - our Global Studio designs products with an international perspective.

What inspires us?

The process. We believe that the process guides us to action. Our vision is to understand the world by experiencing environments and these have shaped our studio into being more thoughtful and authentic. By understanding customer insights and trends driving our lives, we work to understand the why behind everything we do. 

We are driven by gaining knowledge, being optimistic about the power of design and how it affects the human experience. Every project begins here and delivers a solution to the market that can make a smarter impact on the spaces we inhabit.
