Activate Your Space.

The Active collection is inspired by athletic textiles which flex into our physical space, interjecting bold energy and graphic motion. In our design process, we were moved by energetic living and balanced well-being. Charged patterning and bright tones create moments of collaboration, extending fitness to the floor.

Early in the design process, the Shaw Contract design team reviewed patterns and colours prevalent in athletic wear and innovative active materials. The team was drawn to athletic textiles, accessories and shoes that mix varying scale, density and texture with pattern and colours, providing pops of energy and optimism to an environment.

Active patterns activate the floor by pulling inspiration from active wear and various modes of activity. The plank tile size creates large-scale, dynamic layouts, while the colour palette interjects bold energy and pattern into commercial design.

The Shaw Contract design team were inspired by how the synthesis of pattern, texture, shape and colour can be used to activate a space. The patterns within our Active collection evoke movement, optimistic colour, and texture that exhibits efficiency to represent well-being and fitness of mind and body.
