The wood-mimicking resilient line boasts 24 colors to complement various grain styling and embossing. Examples include the deep chocolatey Whiskey Barrel, the rugged, medium-brown Telluride, the gray-toned, striated Zen, and the light, weathered Driftwood. The planks come in four- or six-inch widths with a three-millimeter thickness. Shaw’s ExoGuard topcoatTM, which is reinforced with quartz, ensures optimal performance for high-traffic zones. The son of renowned architectural photographer Ezra Stoller, Evan Stoller, AIA, has stayed close to his roots: In Evan’s case, modern architecture informs furniture design. For his Station Table—and most all of his table designs—he incorporates saw-cut slices of steel I-beams to create trestle legs and adds a ½-inch-thick aluminum shelf. The finished product is an attractive marriage of industrial and modern design for an ideal standing desk or even a computer terminal. It measures 29 inches wide by 21 deep by 38 high, and its shelf can be powdercoated in red or yellow. Perfect for learning spaces, Theory 2.0 modular carpet tiles offer the durability required for heavy-traffic areas, but with welcoming style that moves away from traditional institutional flooring. A total of nine patterns are available in 24 colors, including the fun and graphic alphabet pattern Eureka 2.0 (shown). All styles are offered in both muted, neutral colorways and vibrant, high-contrast palettes, and feature AlphaSan® antimicrobial protection. bretford: Motiv High-back sofa with power Architex: fibonacci Reader Service No. 224 Reader Service No. 225 As various mobile gadgets and devices forgo the standard wall adapter for USB cables, it’s a (power) port in a storm to come across seating like the Motiv High-Back Sofa with Power—and a cushy one at that. The sofa wing fronts provide easy access to integrated power outlets for both AC and USB connections, and the high backs create a private, quiet nook. Upholstered in a selection of stock fabrics or COM/COL, the unit measures 63½ inches wide by 32 deep by 57 tall. Fibonacci, a pattern in the Codes: Man vs. Nature collection, plays off of its mathematical sequence namesake that’s most often associated with the Golden Ratio and its spiral form. In this instance, the numerical phenomenon is expressed through circles that increase in size as they radiate outward. The upholstery fabric is composed of polyester and Trevira CS, and is available in seven colorways. 30 march 2013
