Masland Contract is poised to debut its newest collections for 2013 at NeoCon in Chicago. Now in its 45th year, NeoCon represents North America’s largest architect and design exposition and conference.
At this year’s show, inspiration in design is Masland Contract’s focus with its pre-show initiative called “Be Heard.” The company wants architects, designers, and specifiers to share their thoughts on what inspires them in their work. “We are asking people to share their inspiration, whether it’s a painting, quote, video or music,” said Steve Cocozza, executive vice president at Masland Contract. “Inspirations play such a role in the industry and helped us produce our latest collections.”
Submissions should be tweeted using the hashtag #M_beheard. For every tweet using the hashtag, Masland Contract with make a donation to the TEDActive Pay-It-Forward program, a dedicated scholarship fund that provides opportunities to attend TED conferences. These conferences, which focus on technology, entertainment and design, include over 50 talks in four days at various centers around the world.
Sparked by the energy of inspiration, Masland Contract will showcase Speak and Fit collections at NeoCon. Both offer on-trend design options that work well in any commercial environment. Speak’s modular tile system features progressive design with outstanding quality in three styles: Resonate, Vibrato and Sound Off. Each individual style can be used in a number of configurations for a contemporary look that works well in any environment. The Fit Collection styles – Merge, Mesh, and Mingle – offer a complementary interplay for flexibility in commercial interiors where budget and time constraints are important factors. Both collections are constructed using Universal Fibers’ Earthsmart Refresh Fiber.
