Recently, FORGE Architecture and Design competed and won first place In Haworth’s 5V Immersive Fashion Experience. The winning creation, STRUCTURED VOLUME was inspired by Truebeck Construction’s SF office. We sat down with FORGE Job Captain, Alisa Nadolishny to discuss the work that went into the winning garment, her experience in fashion, and how the team brought their vision to life.
ONE Global Design and Mannington Win #MetropolisLikes and Interior Design Magazine’s HiP Award
FME, in association with a team of ONE Global Design firms, partnered with Mannington Commercial to develop a new carpet line called Intrinsic. We are excited to announce that Intrinsic recently won both the #MetropolisLikes award and the Interior Design Magazine HiP Award for carpet at the 2016 NeoCon exhibition.
The design team consisted of principals and senior designers from four ONE Global firms on the West Coast, including FME (San Francisco), Wolcott (Los Angeles), JPC (Seattle), and SSDG (Vancouver).
“Our ONE Global collaboration with Mannington is a fine example of how this partnership of 18 design firms can combine resources for great success, even on a very complex project,” said Eric Ibsen, Chief Design Officer at FME and Executive Committee Member of ONE Global. “The trust between member firms allowed designers from different cities, with different influences to work towards a lofty common goal. They designed a custom line of commercial flooring which reflects the diversity of the design team but also adds up to a beautiful, cohesive whole.”
The award-winning collection offers four distinctive patterns in 16 different colorways, each inspired by graphically remarkable organic elements:
- Contour: Large-scale based on topography
- Intertwine: Medium-scale based of the nodes of a nucleus/network
- Magnify: Small-scale pattern based on a dandelion blowing in the wind
- Merge: Textural pattern based on a horse’s mane
“The Intrinsic patterns are inspired by nature and the Eames’ Powers of Ten,” said Callie Huff, Job Captain at FME and Team Lead for the Intrinsic collection, which will be ready for production in October 2016. “The immediate high-demand for the product is very gratifying, and speaks to the uniqueness and beauty of its design.”
