case study - CONFIGURE, Surface + Strand, HAVEN COLLECTIONS

Hexagon as a focal point of design, energy, and inspiration.

The brief to the design team to build a space that attracts young people and motivates them to achieve the organization’s larger goals. Derivative to this, the formulated mind map asked for dynamic, faceted and prominent forms. 


The Configure Collection


This being their first office in India, the company wanted to prove a point to its prospective workforce and customers across the world. 

Purely derived out of a circle, is a hexagon. If bisected on the circumference by unchanged radius, followed by joining the intersections, the resultant is a hexagon. It is the ultimate extent of a line’s conversion to an arc. 

This symbolizes dynamism perfectly. Hence the team decided on a hexagon to be the mascot that would drive the floor’s force

Material variety and colours that aligned with the client’s branding

The team narrowed down on three collections from Shaw Contract’s portfolio for the 10,000 square feet flooring area. Configure (Colour Shift Hexagon Tile 5T161, Base Hexagon Tile 5T159, Contact Hexagon Tile 5T160) for the Town Hall and Workstation areas, Surface + Strand (Surface 0515V) for the passage, and Haven (Familiar 5T235) for the Boardroom.

Setting the design tone for a new-age office 

The hexagon as the mascot that drives the floor’s force to exude energy and inspiration.




Result: A dynamic, fluid, and inspiring workspace

The outcome of the floor design was the power it brought to the overall interior design plan of the office. 

The hexagon-themed flooring design infused energy, comfort, and visual beauty into the workspace. 

To put it briefly, the said office space transcends the boundaries between the employee and the employer to make it simplified, flexible and free flowing.
