Founded in 1999, Shazam pioneered the audio recognition technology which was helping mobile phone users to identify music via SMS message as early as 2002. Today, via its mobile app and free non-mobile download users can ‘Shazam' songs and TV shows and are able to identify, explore, purchase and share their results.
'Rug Couture were kind enough to design and manufacture a custom-made rug bearing the Shazam logo for our London Hammersmith office. From start to finish, their people were great to deal with.'Shazam, NYC
'Shazam is evolving from being a way to identify a song to a way for people to explore and connect with the world around them.'CEO, Shazam
'It was situated in Shazam's busy "Artist's Lounge (think of it like Jonathan Ross's Green Room). There Shazam run what are called 'Shazam Sessions' where we invite artists in to do a set which we record for our website (Rita Ora, Passenger, Rebecca Ferguson, Misha B, Stooshe, Kathryn Jenkins are some artists who've been in to our London office and recorded for us). As part of that on-site visit we do an interview. The interview and the artist and artist's managers use the Artist's Lounge when they're here. We have just moved into this floor so the room is just being done up and the rug would finish off the room well.'Shazam, London
The finished rug measured 2.1 x 3.2m and was hand tufted in New Zealand Wool, giving a luxurious, plush pile underfoot with stain inhibition treatment to give extra durability for use in such a heavy traffic area.
'Rug Couture were able to exactly match Shazam's corporate colours, and kept our staff in the loop by sending us images at every stage of production. The finished product is a fabulous addition to our offices,and popular with employees and visitors alike.'Shazam, NYC
