This page, clockwise: The
Durkan Definity installation at the
Northern Quest Resort & Casino
near Spokane, Washington is
based on regional topography
maps, echoing the natural terrain
and rivers on the surrounding
tribal lands; Justin Hicks,
senior manager of product
marketing, and Rami Vagal, senior
sustainability manager, review
samples at the Light Lab Design
Center in Dalton, Georgia; and
the new Free Play collection
uses elements of the Surrealist
"cadavre exquis" technique to
create unexpected motifs

Definity has spawned new collections like the 2019-launched La Valeureuse (also available in PDI and
Computer Yarn Placement) with longtime collaborator Virginia Langley. The textile designer's abstract
interpretations of emotions and moods are delineated in her melange of textural brush strokes, curves,
and swirls.
Free Play (also available in PDI, textured pattern perfect broadloom and carpet tile, and tufted
broadloom) is inspired by a parlor game of yore played by the Surrealists. To transcend their daily routines,
they embraced exquisite corpse technique, drawing an image on a piece of paper, concealing it, and then
passing it on to someone else to elicit imaginative, surprising collaborative illustrations. Durkan designers
took the same experimental route for Free Play, and the "different layers were merged in a finished
collection that showcases the whole team, feeds their creative side, and breaks design rules," says Bonner.
Durkan works with a range of hospitality partners, including the 1 Hotel in Brooklyn, New York, and
Northern Quest Resort & Casino in Spokane, Washington. One particularly striking installation is on
display at the Shed, the cultural center inside the Bloomberg Building at New York's Hudson Yards,
designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group. For the Tisch Skylights and Lab, the rehearsal
and event space on top, Durkan customized a solid white-oak hardwood floor flaunting geometric
diamond patterns that is amplified by the natural light streaming in.
Durkan also worked on the 2019 opening of the much-buzzed TWA Hotel at JFK International Airport.
"We had product in guestroom, corridors, and public space," says Duncan. "It was a great example of hard
and soft surfaces coming together." ❙❘❚
