Tandus wins two best of NeoCon Gold Awards

Jun '07
At the NeoCon World's Trade Fair in Chicago last week, Tandus earned two Best of NeoCon Gold Awards for the Bas Relief Series by its product brand Monterey as well as for its Inunison Virtual Image Sampling Folders.

Balancing design, technology and sustainability within inunison, its new product system, Tandus demonstrated at this year's NeoCon how its four product types – modular, woven, broadloom and six-foot Powerbond – can work across the Monterey, C&A, and Crossley brands.

The Bas Relief Series is Suzanne Tick's latest study in woven broadloom carpet structure. The Series' two running-line styles, Monterey's Bas Relief Rib and Bas Relief Grid, offer the highest relief ever offered in a carpet for contract sale. Volumes of extra large, twisted yarn bundles provide excessive texture almost as a "sculpture."

Through a combination of volume and complex yarn twisting techniques, this soft carpet face absorbs heavy foot traffic, and is designed as a destination carpet for reception, personal and communal workspaces.

“The profile of this series can be looked at as a design element, with the beautiful woven inlay serving as an oasis, a fraction of luxury, similar to the way an area rug functions on a hardwood floor,” said Ms. Tick, Design Director, Tandus. “It's a new way to combine commercial carpet tile with broadloom and I am honored to have been recognized by NeoCon for pushing conventional boundaries.”

In addition, Tandus won a Gold Award for its Inunison Virtual Image Sampling Folders, a product that will minimize the need for physical carpet samples while still providing a complete sample experience. Two years of national market surveys and book formats were carefully reviewed and modified to ensure that the folders suited the designers work.
