The Smart City collection—a 12- by 36-inch Living Product carpet plank system—reinterprets the transit maps of major cities and urban areas into soft surfaces for commercial interiors.
The system includes Urban Model, which reflects the texture and rhythm of a metropolitan mapscape, and Urban Mobility, inspired by the subway systems of cities like Berlin, London and Paris. Mohawk Group collaborated with Gensler, serving as product design consultant, for Smart City.
Its design and development were informed by the Gensler Cities Climate Challenge (GC3) and the AIA 2030 Commitment, initiatives that call for all new buildings, developments and major renovations to be carbon neutral by 2030.
