Mohawk Group | Light Lab

Located in Dalton, GA, the 33,000 square foot Light Lab is a mid-century modern building that features 360 degree views of landscape and natural vistas. Built in the early 1960s as the headquarters for World Carpet, the building has been used most recently as a showroom space for Mohawk Flooring residential products. The conceptual design of the interior renovation for Light Lab was provided by students from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and the building is now home to all of the commercial and hospitality product design teams in the Mohawk organization.

In May 2016, Light Lab received Petal Certification from the International Living Future Institute’s Living Building Challenge program. Light Lab was the first Living Building Challenge Petal Certified project in the state of Georgia and the first restoration project in the entire Southeastern United States.
