Jane Hallinan, IIDA, LEED Green Associate is an interior designer in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She works at Perkins Eastman and practices within the corporate interiors and senior living areas of the firm, which compliment her previous design experience in the renovation of existing and historic buildings for commercial, educational, and religious clientele.
At only 26 years old, Jane is excited to unveil Outliners, her first designed commercial product in partnership with Tarkett.
Inspired by the strength and perseverance of the confluent rivers in Pittsburgh, PA, designer Jane Hallinan played with the way water distorts our perspective of the objects and materials beneath it. Outliners + Techtonic’s design is authentic to the roots of Hallinan’s community, taking inspiration from its unique characteristics including insight garnered from the natural world.
Says Hallinan, “There is uncharted territory around water. It’s both a source of life and a powerful force. Where other materials can be stopped, water finds a way. Biophilia is in everything from fabric to flooring. It’s usually translated as leaves, trees, flowers, or weathered stone. There is uncharted territory around water and how you take a liquid and turn it into a solid, without creating an uneasy feeling of not having firm ground beneath your feet.”
