A new creative concept that enables architects and interior designers to implement their own design ideas over extensive areas in stores, lobbies, offices or hotels – with sheet carpeting, acoustic tiles or individual rugs. Innovative production methods make it possible to create distinctive, custom-made one-offs. Inspiration is provided by 18 different designs, ranging from flower power motifs and organic colour and shape patterns all the way to puristic severity. In addition to their creative diversity, the textile floor coverings score high marks for durability and a backing made of recycled PET.
The collection features very bold, self-confident designs – in keeping with the fact that, more than ever before, the floor is becoming a design arena in its own right. Despite the visual opulence of the design, the technical aspects are compelling: the carpeting contains no PVC, latex or bitumen, meaning nothing stands in the way of recycling.
