Interface collaborated with a team of interior designers from Cox Architecture to create an installation that would explore the concept of mindfulness and how it relates to design.
April 4th, 2016
The Cox Architecture interior design team was invited to combine Interface’s Narrative carpet tiles with props or materials of their choosing to create a space that invoked the concept of mindfulness.
The team begun their design response with an individual exercise – exploring what the notion of mindfulness meant to each of them. ““My first thought was of when I saw the Anish Kapoor exhibition at the MCA a couple of years ago,” said Senior Interior Designer, Trent Schatzmann. “[Kapoor] has this ability to create experiences that allow you to get lost in the moment. We then thought about creating something that would let the viewer get lost in the moment.”
The team then followed the thread of discovering ‘internal’ space. As Senior Interior Designer Lauren Smith explains, “This thinking evolved into a three-dimensional space using carpet tiles to represent a landscape inside the mind; we played with positive and negative ideas, thought forms and beliefs. We also looked at peeling back the various layers of the mind. We were investigating the idea of a mindful space happening within the mind.”
