Shaw Contract - Inside Shapes


Form Us With Love designs pick and mix carpet tiles


Stockholm studio Form Us With Love has created a series of carpet tiles with a variety of geometric shapes for American flooring specialist Shaw Contract.


Called Inside Shapes, the collection challenges the standard 24” x 24” square carpet tile by using a CNC machine to cut triangles and semicircles out of one side. You can combine these shapes in any arrangement and use them to work around furniture and room dimensions.

There are twelve colours to choose from to create tessellating patterns, and there’s also a plain square tile in any of those colours if you need a bit of regularity.

Shaw Contract also provides a digital tool that allows you to visualise all the possibilities of Inside Shapes; you start with a blank canvas and select a premix option or rearrange tiles from a series of starter ideas, changing colours along the way.
