CHICAGO, Il. June 13, 2014 – At NeoCon 2014, Mohawk Group launched a comprehensive line of flooring products with a focus on breaking form with tradition, challenging the way flooring works and shifting perceptions of what flooring can achieve. The packed showroom was abuzz with an overwhelmingly positive response to the new products from the A&D community. In total, Mohawk Group proudly took home eight awards in recognition of its highly-styled products and revered associates.
Perhaps one of the most talked-about collections in the showroom – and also the winner of Contract Magazine’s Best of NeoCon Editors’ Pick Award for carpet modular – the Breaking Form Collection pushes past tradition, giving designers new approaches to color, shape, scale and movement. The collection was designed in collaboration with Mac Stopa of Massive Design, exploring bold lines and geometric patterns that transform the floor – a two-dimensional product – into something three-dimensional.
Additionally, the company took the spotlight at Interior Design Magazine’s inaugural HIP Awards at NeoCon 2014 with four big wins and two honoree recognitions. Interior Design, an industry-leading media brand for design professionals worldwide, launched Honoring Industry People (HIP) this year to celebrate individuals in the design industry as well as product solutions. Mohawk Group’s Creative Director Chris Stulpin and Sales Representative Susan Leath took home the top prize within their respective categories, and Durkan’s Director of Color and Design Mark Page was named an honoree for Design Manufacturer. The following Mohawk Group products also received accolades at the ceremony, which was held in the Atrium on the 8th floor of the Merchandise Mart in Chicago on June 10th:
- Cross-Market Versatility Winner: Hot & Heavy Loose-Lay LVT
- Use of Color Winner: WHY Y LVT, designed in collaboration with Mac Stopa of Massive Design
- Design Solution Underfoot Honoree: New Vintage Modular Carpet
Mohawk Group’s Hot & Heavy was also named a Grand Prize Winner within BUILDINGS Product Innovations competition. Awarded during NeoCon 2014, Product Innovations is a showcase of offerings that exemplify how performance and aesthetics can enhance facilities management. Hot & Heavy, which was also the HD Expo resilient product design competition winner, took top prize within the Flooring Innovation category.
The Company was also recognized for Simply Tailored, a woven collection of products designed in collaboration with Lauren Rottet, by the popular social media-driven ‘Metropolis Likes’ competition.
