Shaw Contract Introduces Shifting Fields Collection

Shifting Fields is the latest carpet tile collection from commercial flooring designer-manufacturer Shaw Contract EMEA. Inspired by the constant transitions witnessed in our natural environment, Shifting Fields features three styles of carpet tile designed to work together across the landscape of commercial interiors. The relationships between land, sky, water and the horizon changes constantly. As these landscapes shift, our natural world adapts. In the age of agile working and the need to design for ever-changing environments, Shifting Fields mimics these transitions to create more balanced and connected environments indoors. 

Inspired by nature
Made from Shaw’s 100% recycled content EcoSolution Q100 fibre and manufactured at their carbon neutral plant in Sanquhar, Scotland, the new collection is available as a 50 x 50cm carpet tile in three styles – Plains, Landing and Landing Edge

Style Plains is available in nine nature-inspired colours including Desert, Pristine, Remote, Tide, Evergreen, Coast, Sunset, Stone and Reservoir. Depending on the installation method, Landing Edge tiles, available in six colours, can be used as a standalone feature to create distinctive designs, as a border or as a seamless transition between Plains and Landing tiles on the journey from one space to another. Landing is available in three colours.

“Shifting Fields is a collection that can work in a range of environments and offers the designer options to create subtle transitions in colour and pattern. Colours such as Sunset in this collection also co-ordinate with our other carpet tile collections to create a whole new range of design possibilities.”

Kerry Deffley, Design Manager EMEA at Shaw Contract
