Marietta, Ga. — The world’s leading architects and designers can now evaluate and celebrate the work of their peers as part of an exciting, new project installation challenge. Mohawk Group, in partnership with Designer Pages, is launching In Your Space, a four-round online competition that invites the A&D community to vote for their favorite space featuring carpet from Mohawk Group’s premier brands. The winner from each round will compete head-to-head in a “Final 4 Showdown,” which will conclude with a special presentation at NeoCon 2012.
“As the world’s largest flooring manufacturer, Mohawk Group has the distinct privilege of working with the industry’s most talented architects, designers and design firm teams,” said Merrie Barnett, director of marketing for Mohawk Group. “We wanted to create a venue that would recognize their outstanding work, as well as inspire and challenge the A&D community. The In Your Space competition also gives the contract industry an opportunity to see Mohawk’s products in real design applications, demonstrating our ability to singlehandedly meet the flooring needs of today’s architects and designers.”
The In Your Space challenge is a partnership between Mohawk Group and Designer Pages, a resource dedicated to helping designers find great products and connect with the manufacturers that make them. Designer Pages is the Digital Partner for NeoCon and host of the popular Product Wars competition.
“We are very excited to partner with Mohawk Group for the In Your Space challenge,” said Jenny Rector, chief marketing officer for Designer Pages. “We are always looking for fun, new ways to engage the Designer Pages community. We strongly believe in the benefits of peer-to-peer networking, and In Your Space fosters that interaction while also celebrating the very best in design and innovation.”
The In Your Space competition includes four rounds of online voting, with each round featuring up to four competing project installations. A winner will emerge from each round, and the winning four installations will compete in a “Final 4 Showdown,” culminating at NeoCon 2012. Mohawk Group and Designer Pages will reveal the grand prize winner during a special reception at Mohawk Group’s NeoCon showroom Tuesday, June 12.
