Inspired by a variety of materials and techniques, Contour Abstracts offers unique experiences and artful expressions for the floor plane. From woven textiles to mathematical equations, each creative process begins as a question in the creator’s mind. What if we could explore the element of water beneath our feet? What if we manipulated circles in an entirely new way? What if we explore color with more passion and excitement?
Contour Woods begins with the careful study of natural grains and time-honored woodworking techniques, pulling out the details of each species and building upon them for a look that’s even better than the real thing. The new end grain pattern is reminiscent of the wood blocks used as street pavers in the mid-1800s, a stunning visual now, but trusted then for its durability and comfort for animals. From the warm and rustic to the cool and contemporary, every grain has a story to tell—and a unique contribution to make.
Gaining inspiration from old-world Italian craftsmanship, Contour Stones showcases subtle depths of color and texture that shift and morph as nature intended, creating authentic visuals that can only be accomplished through advanced digital design. Design interpretations of Italian concrete and the reflection of glass against stone take on a character all their own.
