Mohawk Group recently unveiled their brand-new showroom in NYC. Located in a former textile factory in historic Chelsea, the 13,000-square-foot space was designed by Gensler and incorporates LEED and WELL Building Standard qualifications, fully expressing Mohawk’s company ethos: Believe in better.

“Coming from our manufacturing and textile background, this building really spoke to us,” explains Jackie Dettmar, VP of commercial design and product development. “It feels like this is home. It’s part of our history and part of Mohawk.”

Flooded with natural light, the showroom embraces an open plan with inviting work and meeting spaces, versatile product displays, a working sample library, a materials education lab, and an open area for events and training. Herbs and other flora sit in simple planters along the window, exemplifying the company’s commitment to biophilia and healthy design.

Interior Design editor in chief Cindy Allen took a tour of the space on Facebook. “It seems to me that these days projects have to be functional, beautiful, technical, sustainable, and now with WELL, good for the people working there,” she said. “When I’m walking through this space, I feel really good.”
