Local designer received international award

Special to NNBW

Shaw Contract Flooring hosts an annual design completion where 450 applicants spanning 32 countries submitted their projects completed in the previous year utilizing Shaw flooring and 31 finalists were selected. KDesign, a locally owned interior design firm submitted The Jungle into the competition.

Kadie Remaklus, owner and principal designer of KDesign was placed in the top 9 Design Market winners celebrating the most extraordinary architects and designers who form the spaces that shape the lives that make the world a better place.

Kadie sums up the project in one word “progression” and regards her design impact “by making an impression on a human psyche and taking people to a new place, experiencing new feelings and impacting their way of thinking. This project provides a space where new thoughts can flow, where self‐exploration is implied or suggested. The current social climate is dark and it is time for some light, I think that creating spaces that encourage people to ponder existential solutions will help sculpt the future. Instead of being reactionary we should start to navigate ourselves and explore new ideas. Utilizing our community/resources to get things accomplished rather than solely on money is a great way to focus on the importance and value that we each have in this life. The only boundaries are those that we place on ourselves. In summation I would categorize this movement as Reinventing Beatnik.”
