As a team, they present authentic aesthetics and unconventional functionality, all while creating an emotional connection.


INNOCAD designs the Mohawk Group showroom at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago 

The new Mohawk Group showroom at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago is a multifunctional, flexible open space perfect for a variety of working and communication requirements. INNOCAD designed the showroom to have a transformative atmosphere that offers a functional display for flooring products, while still offering an authentic aesthetic and an emotional impact.


Mohawk Group launches two modular flooring collections designed by 13&9 in collaboration with INNOCAD

The ability to create individual flooring patterns and organize indoor space like a landscape architect is the most valuable contribution of the Topography collection. Using combinable tiles in varying sizes and two different color combinations, interior designers can take a subtle, tactile design approach that highlights individuality. This multifunctional collection is flexible for any interior – from commercial and hospitality spaces to private residences.

Moonscapes is an innovative broadloom collection inspired by the landscape of the moon. Actual photographs of its surface taken by an astronomy camera were abstracted into geometrical patterns for the collection’s artwork, and are visible in the broadloom’s printed pattern. The moon’s three dimensional surface is translated as elevations of the carpet base, creating a visual and tactile experience.
