A collaborative space where the local design community can experience and be inspired by US-based global flooring brand.

Officially launched at Melbourne Indesign, Design Lab combines a ground floor retail showroom and warehouse, and a first floor open plan space for 25 people that includes collaborative and quiet work areas and a multi-function meeting room.

Managing Director at Shaw Contract Australia Bill Magee said Shaw Contract’s passion to provide designers with an interactive showroom in a premium location within the Richmond design precinct inspired their move from their former address in Port Melbourne.

“This space will become a hub for the local design community, where they can experience flooring solutions and also a place to learn, connect and be inspired,”

Gray Puksand and Shaw Contract partnered with well-established global brands featuring bespoke furniture designed by Patricia Urquiola throughout this new space and classic Eames chairs which sit on display pedestals along the shopfront.
