The American Society of Interior Designers Voices Its Stance on HB 2

CaptureWashington, D.C. (April 1, 2016) – The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is dismayed with the North Carolina legislature and governor’s recent actions to enact discriminatory legislation (HB 2) that overturns protections for LGBT people and sanctions discrimination across the state. As an organization that represents more than 26,000 interior design professionals, manufacturers, and industry representatives, ASID believes that laws such as HB 2 are unacceptable and counterproductive for business and the profession at large.

A thriving business environment depends on inclusive practices that welcome all who want to participate. In fact, North Carolina prides itself on being one of the top states in the nation in which to conduct business and to establish businesses. Yet HB 2 sends a clear and harmful message to the contrary. As a result, numerous businesses and consumers are calling for boycotts of North Carolina’s economy and, more specifically, the upcoming biannual High Point Market; one of the largest income producers for the state of North Carolina.

Members of the design community have not only joined these calls, but also are forgoing participation at High Point Market—at a cost to their businesses. ASID commends their actions in the name of pressuring the governor and legislature to rescind HB 2.

Similarly, ASID supports those individuals attending Market who wish to champion the many manufacturers and businesses speaking out against the new law. Laws such as HB 2 that permit discrimination are regressive and place individuals at risk of being denied service, lodging, employment, and business in general. Therefore, ASID encourages anyone attending Market to ask hard questions of the organizations they do business with and to consider carefully, and morally, where they spend their money.

ASID rejects discrimination of any kind and, as the voice of the profession, expects public policies to support and protect—not jeopardize—its members, the profession, and the industry. While ASID will continue with our scheduled programming at Market, which includes a session on The Impact of Government Laws and Regulations on Your Design Business, it will evaluate future interactions and business opportunities in North Carolina as well as other states with similar laws. ASID declares its vigilance on this matter will not cease, and it strongly urge all elected officials to move without delay to repeal discriminatory laws like HB 2.

ASID invites interior designers to join their voices with others from across the country. Text “One Voice’ to 52886 to stay updated and engaged on this and other important issues affecting interior designers and the profession.

COVERINGS INSTALLATION DESIGN SHOWCASE TO CELEBRATE LEADING INSTALLATION AND DESIGN TALENT

(ALEXANDRIA, VA – March 15, 2016) Attendees of Coverings, the largest tile & stone exhibition in North America, will experience the creative visions of four talented designers come to life during the seventh iteration of the Coverings Installation Design Showcase. During the live-action demonstration and exhibit, sponsored by The Home Depot, master installers will build full-scale vignettes that incorporate materials from industry-leading tile and stone manufacturers, for the duration of the show from April 18 – 21, 2016 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

The 2016 Installation Design Showcase will allow attendees the opportunity to escape the show floor and participate in the newly designed courtyard setting. The four vignettes will spotlight tile applications in a variety of commercial settings, including a retail boutique, a spa lobby, a clubhouse bar and lounge, and a boutique hotel lobby. The vignettes are uniquely designed to capture the many different moods and aesthetics that can be achieved with tile and stone materials, and the various applications demonstrate how advanced techniques affect the overall look and performance of the space.

Design teams led by representatives from Alena Capra Designs, Architecture is Fun, FGM Architects, and Healing Environments will be paired with installers who hold Five Star Recognition from the National Tile Contractors Association and certification from the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation to build each team’s creative vision. Bellota, Lackmond, European Tile Masters, LATICRETE, MAPEI, Schluter, TEC/H.B. Fuller, and USG will all supply the necessary materials, supplies and tools to build each vignette. John Cox, of Cox Tile, Inc., has worked closely with each design and installation team, offering technical and executional consultation.

 

Retail Boutique

Designer Alena Capra, principal of Alena Capra Designs and the 2016 Coverings Industry Ambassador, will incorporate a number of trends in tile materials, including 3-D effects, shades of aqua, bold prints and fabric looks, to create a chic retail boutique environment. Incorporating surfacing from a roster of Ceramics of Italy manufacturers, including Ceramica Sant’Agostino, Tagina Ceramiche d’Arte, Atlas Concorde and Sicis, Capra’s design will feature one statement wall in a mosaic peacock print, while white 3-D tile, blue glass tiles and aqua and gray porcelain cover the remaining wall surfaces. The design navigates the challenges of incorporating display areas without visually distracting from the tile. For the second time, after first participating in 2010, Capra has been partnered with an installation team from Artcraft Granite, Marble & Tile Co., represented by James Woelfel.

“The Installation Design Showcase is an opportunity to illustrate the importance of proper methods and standards in tile installation and show how they play such a vital role in tile design,” said Woelfel. “When designers, architects, general contractors and owners see for themselves the difference a certified tile installer makes in a project, they have a greater appreciation for the technical knowledge and quality craftsmanship it takes to make a job successful.”

Spa Lobby

The design team from Healing Environments, led by Susan El-Naggar, will illustrate the firm’s commitment to creating healthy environments that promote healing and inner peace. Their spa lobby vignette has a strong focus on sustainability, utilizing Biophilic Design practices, and will incorporate a variety of versatile stone & tile materials from Crossville for a synergistic space.

“We are looking forward to the build-out at the show and the ability to ‘experience’ a luxury space through the five senses,” explains El-Naggar. “Through the dramatic ambiance of the Opti-myst fireplace to the peaceful water feature to the smell of eucalyptus, the spa lobby will surely be a place that will bring ‘healing to the mind, body, and spirit.’”

The first-time Installation Design Showcase participants from Trostrud Mosaic & Tile, a third-generation family firm based in the greater Chicago area, will ensure the project’s elements are completed to the highest degree of quality and technical accuracy – two critical performance benchmarks for the company’s work. According to Brad Trostrud, his team has taken the challenge of combating the Showcase’s time constraint to heart, and has developed a plan to account for any limitations or potential obstacles during build-out so to ensure success with their design partner during the building period.

Clubhouse Bar & Lounge

The design team from FGM Architects, led by Louise Kowalczyk and Raegan Porter, has embraced the opportunity to collaborate with installers in a new setting during the Installation Design Showcase. The new options of shapes, sizes and finishes offered by StonePeak’s tile product offerings provided great inspiration to demonstrate the myriad of ways tile can be used beyond the expected inside the golf clubhouse bar & lounge. The design team frequently use tile in their projects, but find a welcome challenge in creating warmth in a space that incorporates all hard surface tile and look forward to seeing the possibilities come to life with their installation team from Welch Tile and Marble, represented by Steven Coates.

“Being passionate about the tile industry manifests itself in many ways,” said Coates. “The Installation Design Showcase provides opportunities to reward, teach and support industry sustainability, and we look forward to networking and interacting with the talented participants as we advance our experiences and careers.”

Boutique Hotel Lobby

A passion for travel to exotic locales and public spaces that delight, charm and play with emotions inspired the design team from Architecture Is Fun. In conceptualizing their boutique hotel lobby vignette, the team sought to create a vibrant social space that is dynamic yet intimate, and serves an environment where visitors can ‘play and stay’ in their own personalized way, whether it’s in a rebellious, creative, calm or social.

“The Installation Design Showcase is a perfect play partner, providing an opportunity to dabble with materiality and to disrupt the norm,” said Sharon Exley, of Architecture Is Fun. “We want our hotel vignette to be welcoming, to elevate practical needs into those that differentiate and to create a place to return again and again.”

The installation team from Grazzini Brothers will work with a variety of materials from Florim to show and tell the design team’s story. The inclusion of supersized porcelain juxtaposed against jewel-sized insets is intended to create an evocative and beautiful space.

“The Installation Design Showcase is a unique collaborative process that encapsulates the full scope of a tile project from design and specification to installation all executed in a compressed timeline,” said John Cox, of Cox Tile, the Installation Design Showcase technical advisor. “The close collaboration between the design and installation professionals reiterates how integral the two professions are to ensuring the continued success of the tile and stone industry.”

The Installation Design Showcase courtyard will be open for the duration of Coverings and all attendees are encouraged to visit and witness its progress. Join the design and installation teams on Wednesday, April 20, 2016, at 3:30 p.m., for the “Installation Design Showcase Deconstructed” session, during which each team will detail their design vision and the types of tiles selected, and discuss the installation techniques that made each design element possible. This free program and reception is open to all attendees, though it is suggested to pre-register during show registration at coverings.com/register.

It will offer an expanded product mix of masonry, carpet, wood, and vinyl flooring; in addition to tile, stone, and terrazzo. After decades of fabricating and installing stone and tile in some of the most significant commercial projects in the west, Superior is poised to bring its reputation for excellence, expertise, and safety to a state known for its ski slopes, national parks, history and a welcoming business environment.“Our mission and value lies in continuously exceeding customers’ expectations,” said Superior CEO Tommy Conner. “We are not satisfied simply meeting contractual obligations.  Our customers turn to us because they know we’re experts in the field, and because we focus on excellence in every single aspect of the business.”

During the last five years, award-winning Superior has commenced work on hundreds of projects for a total dollar volume of over $135 million. The largest project completed to date is the Cosmopolitan Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada for a total of $37 million.
