Shortlisted: Mohawk Industries for the Flooring Award in the IPD Awards 2014

design et al are delighted to announce shortlist success for Mohawk Industries in the International Product Design Awards 2014. ‘New Vintage’ will compete in the Flooring category.

Inspired by the antiquated look of handmade rugs, these uniquely shaped 12″x36″ modular carpet planks feature tone-on-tone neutrals with over-dyed brights.


New Vintage is an old-world inspired pattern suitable for corporate, hospitality, and education settings. It made with DuraColor® Premium Nylon fibers, making it functional for the most chaotic of end-use environments because of its superior inherent stain- and wear-resistant qualities. Designed with overbright hues as well as vintage-inspired tones, planks with a strategically worn look can be subtly exchanged without the obvious indication of replacement.


New Vintage patterns can be used together or separately, offering architects and designers the unique opportunity to create microcultural work areas throughout an office setting. New Vintage Collection celebrates humanity growing desire for solace, simplicity and authenticity in an ever-growing technologically-driven society.
