Karndean is celebrating a successful collaboration with Global Color Research at The Surface Design Show 2015. Created by New Designers award winner Emilie Osborne, two 3D installations featured Karndean Designflooring’s new LooseLay Series Three and Opus Enhance ranges. Upon entry to the show, visitors were confronted with the powerful, site-specific hanging installation of Beast, draped over the foyer’s balcony above the heads of guests. Looking to combine danger and beauty, Emilie opted to use the textured surface of Karndean’s Opus Enhance Carbo. The black wash, wood grain effect created a striking backdrop to the entrance hall. Standing at the front of the exhibition hall the design of Brink, based on the 2015 trend for order and control, was a major focal point for visitors. Emilie took inspiration from ancient architecture, predominantly Roman columns. Emilie featured the light blond hues of Cambridge and warm ginger tones of Burlington from Karndean LooseLay Series Three within the Brink design.
