Contract Magazine - July 2020 - 6

EDITORIAL

Planning
for
Change
Despite the cancellations of commercial trade shows such
as ICFF, HD Expo, Salone del Mobile, and NeoCon this year, designers
and manufacturers are still producing and manufacturing gamechanging product solutions. Here at Contract, we strongly believe
that product is one of the most critical components of designing
any good interior, which is why we make product coverage a key part
of each issue. This month, we share some of the most innovative new
products (more than 175!) for the workplace, hospitality, healthcare,
and education sectors.
As architects and designers redesign commercial spaces
to accommodate the realities of our post-pandemic world, they are
working with their colleagues, clients, and communities to reconsider
and reshape the places where we work and live. To take the pulse
of the architecture and design industry, we surveyed 25 leading
designers about how they are rethinking space design and product
specification amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We also talked with
more than a dozen design directors from various textile and carpet
companies about their new collections and their perspectives
as they all work from home.
Contract's Digital Platforms
As the design community continues to work from home and adjust
to the "new normal," Contract has been upping its digital content
game. We've offered thought-provoking and informative panels,
during which we've engaged with designers on how they are
responding to and designing for a post-pandemic world. We also
just completed a great three-part series on health and wellness

that will make you rethink how sustainability needs to evolve.
Our Associate Editor, Meghan Dwyer, has been heading up an
Instagram Live series with designers and manufacturers on the state
of the industry, and she's also profiling talented designers for
Contract's new Multivitamin series. Additionally, our Managing Editor,
Lauren Volker, who has been cohosting many of our webinars,
has also been spearheading our On Our Radar blog series, sponsored
by KI. There's so much content to enjoy! Visit contractdesign.com
to learn more.
