Shaw Contract’s products proved to be a perfect complement to the busy headquarters, providing high quality, stylish support without overwhelming the company’s brand and visual displays. The aesthetic cohesion reinforces the client’s distinct culture and long-standing reputation as a leader in service, quality, and commitment to their employees and communities.
The end user is a brand with strong worldwide recognition, a company supported by its independent distributor network of over 8,000 entrepreneurs and global sponsor to almost 200 world-class athletes. So it’s unsurprising that their 80,000 square foot Los Angeles office, the client’s international headquarters, consistently sees a tremendous amount of foot traffic, both in its regular day-to-day operations as well as the numerous events and tours the location hosts. Therefore, all flooring needed to be highly durable and attractive, while subtly enhancing the strong visual branding throughout the space. The majority of the area – hallway, workstations, meeting rooms – features Shaw Chok Tile-Design Journey Master 5T100 in Pagoda, a minimalist design and color that blends in effortlessly with the unfussy finishes and furnishings of the workplace’s top executives. The neutral flooring continues into the Boardroom where Shaw’s Nobel Material in Forge Platinum grounds the bold space, deftly mimicking the custom wood slatted ceiling installation. Shaw Solitude VCT in Umber is featured in the adjacent pantry and executive pantry, as well as the executive office, where it borders the seating area anchored with Shaw Nobel Material tile in Carrara. Both the hard and soft surfaces, complemented by the other finishes in the space, offered the end user a pleasingly neutral palette in which to fully showcase the brand.
