Nomad Collection

Platinum Award
2020
The Arc-Com design studio became intrigued by the heightened interest in younger generations to avoid being tethered to geography or even possessions in the workplace environment. This, coupled with an interest in repurposing materials and spaces and buying and sourcing local reflect a very “nomadic” ideology. These influences are changing how work and travel spaces are being designed today.
The Nomad Collection pieces together and modernizes the design imagery associated with one of world’s oldest nomadic cultures -the Moroccan Berbers. The Nomad Collection is also a study in unique fiber materials, surface texture and dimension.
As human beings we have always been attracted to tactile surfaces. Enhanced tactility and physical touch are important. They can reduce stress and anxiety and are linked to oxytocin production. We are surrounded by so much technology and the super smooth digital screens of our phone, tablets or laptops that we crave surfaces that deliver sensuous texture and dimension. The unique novelty yarns used in the Nomad Collection speak to our basic human need for surfaces that thrill our fingertips and engage our senses.
The Nomad Collection includes three jacquard textiles and one velvet. This collection offers designers sumptuous surfaces with enhanced performance features that can be mixed and matched within a space. This group utilizes an incredible array of novelty yarns that make these textiles look as if they are either hand woven or embroidered. A chunky boucle, a heathered acrylic and a highly unique eyelash yarn lend these fabrics a dimensional aesthetic that make it hard to believe they are contract grade performance fabrics! Patterns Wanderer, Venture and Quest offer high abrasion and are bleach cleanable. Pattern Journey can also be used as drapery as it is produced with inherently Flame-retardant fiber.
