International design and architect studios Rottett and Studios Architecture came together with us, for an ambitious design collaboration that resulted in the ideal balance between both firm’s aesthetic visions and expectations being achieved.
Faced with an exciting challenge, we were able to draw upon our expertise as pioneers in the custom rug and carpet industry, developing solutions that would balance the old and new, stay within budget and perform aesthetically and functionally without any of the fine details falling short.
TSAR FORMULA = BALANCING AESTHETICS, BUDGET AND PERFORMANCE.
Mediating between the two firms was the priority; this involved sticking to brief, budget and prioritising areas in the NYSE according to the managers and the hierarchy of the various spaces. We used a range of our product offerings that not only fitted but suited the spaces, including Astoria, axminster, kartina and hand-tufted in different levels of complexity. Leaving both clients with an unforgettable design experience, and of course a refresh of the iconic historical establishment.
Constant and clear communication allowed us to negotiate with project managers to meet strict deadlines for artwork production, sampling and the final delivery. Managing their expectations and the workload of our designers was essential.
Inside the walls of the NYSE, our in-house designs Tuileries and Venetian were chosen and customised to be distinctive and suit the Neo-classical interiors, and to serve purpose and functionality in the space.
We modified and revised in-house and custom designs numerous times to perfect them, to bring together elements in the rooms, balancing old with new but also not losing the design details that make the piece unique. The designs had to fit both visions and meet the aesthetics expectations of the firms.
We were given one total budget for 15 spaces of varying management hierarchies and quality expectations. Unwilling to compromise by making the the lower management designs less expensive than that of the higher management, we worked tirelessly to find solutions by tweaking complexity and production techniques to find to suit status and remain in budget without aesthetics falling short.
We’re alway honest with the performance of our products and refuse to work with and recommend inferior qualities that won’t perform in the space. Considering the level of traffic, light exposure, cleaning and maintenance of each individual space, our solutions are able to cater to each indivitual situation.
A remarkable collaboration and fabulous experience where we were able to test and prove the TSAR formula – balancing aesthetics, budget and performance.
