For over 50 years NeoCon has evolved into one of the most recognised and attended trade shows in commercial design and business trends. Attracting around 50,000 design professionals, NeoCon was the perfect platform and opportunity to launch Umbra - one of most advanced innovation products to the US market place.
From the Amtico Signature Abstract Collection, Umbra captures light and mood, shade and drama, uniquely and beautifully. Expressed in a monochromatic palette, the design of organic layers and flowing contrast derives from experiments with analog photographic techniques. Pattern movements are captured by a new technology that enables a continuous, non repeating visual, ensuring that each Umbra tile and installation is truly unique.
Mannington encourages innovative product development through the discovery process of artistic collaboration, travel and everyday acts of creation.
We do not create the work. I believe we, in fact, are discoverers
