Desso debuts 'Materials in Touch' carpet tile collection

Oct '13
Celebrating textures, materiality and artisan skills Desso a global carpets, carpet tiles and sports pitches company has launched its latest collection called Materials in Touch. Part of Desso's wider CARPETECTURE concept, this tactile collection has been developed to appeal to an architect's desire to create a sensory experience within interior spaces.

Taking inspiration from fabrics, architecture and fashion, Desso's design team has created a collection that engages the senses. The collection was extensively tested in the international Circles of Architects network which is focused on engaging architects and designers in face to face conversations and online networking.

Ludwig Cammaert, Director Design & Technical Development at Desso explains, "The mix of different structures in the collection enables customers to add materiality and personal expression to a room, creating a sense of wellbeing in a space. We're very proud of this collection"

This interactive and playful range comprises of six carpet tile products all in a number of different colour ways: Frisk, Tweed, Fields, Ribble, Trace as well as an addition to the Essence Collection - Essence Structure all make up the new collection.

Frisk has a rich structure and the smart use of tonal colours results in a distinct pattern with a calm and elegant appearance on larger surfaces. Tweed with its two-directional pattern creates an all-over design with the tactile character of fashion fabrics, defined by the organic pattern of irregular 'flecks'.

Fields' irregular design touches the senses and adds comfort and materiality to interior spaces, giving an overall impression of hand-woven textiles. Meanwhile, Ribble is a rich high-low structure carpet tile, which combines matt and shiny yarns to create a luxurious carpet solution where the variation in thickness makes it directional, but only subtly linear.

The key characteristic of Trace is its very specific Compactuft loop pile construction, which creates a clean industrial look. It shows a refined pattern of subtly contrasting stripes against a neutral background. Finally, the Essence Collection has been boosted with the Essence Structure to offer improved creative options for the range. It has an organic design of rhythmic fading lines in gently contrasting colours.

The new collection also reflects Desso's continued drive to make environmentally responsible flooring products with beautiful and engaging design for spaces that help boost people's health and wellbeing. Intrinsic to Desso's wellbeing notion is its Cradle to Cradle approach to sustainability which promotes a circular economy - whereby new products are made of materials which are designed to be disassembled and can be safely recycled. 

The concept not only translates into all Desso's products but also to a number of initiatives, including Desso's carpet tile Take-Back programme, separation and purification process, Refinity and carpets containing ECONYL yarn. ECONYL is a yarn which is made from 100% regenerated nylon including post-consumer yarn waste from Desso's Refinity plant.

The products in the Materials in Touch collection are available in a number of colour ways ranging from six to 16. The carpet tiles are available with DESSO EcoBase backing - either as standard or as an option, with the exception of Trace. DESSO EcoBase is specifically designed with disassembly and recycling in mind. Due to its innovative composition, the polyolefin based layer of the EcoBase backing is 100% safely recyclable in our own production process.
