The Office Group and SODA unveil cinematic Brock House
Inspired by the eclectic history of the building, Brock House is set within an ‘island-like’ building in the West End, offering an oasis of calm with wellness at its core.
In the Mark of Time collection from Ege Carpets, multi-level loop construction creates a sculptural texture influenced by the collision of the Earth’s layers.
Combining a rough yet poetic design story with a truly sustainable product concept featuring several practical advantages such as improved acoustics and flexibility, Mark of Time Ecotrust offers a contemporary interior choice for demanding projects.
Designed by textile designer and creative director Carol Appleton, chaotic and organic elements come together to define the two co-ordinating patterns – Bedrock and Landslide – that can be used alone or combined to give a soft or dramatic expression to the floorscape.
Bedrock has a soft stone texture and is the foundation for the collection, and Landslide is inspired by fragmented rock, weathered and streaked with colour. Minerals including jet, lapis and serpentine have inspired the colour palette of tone-on-tone neutrals complemented by darker shades that create either a subtle or powerful yet refined look. Each design comes in 15 contemporary colours carefully chosen for their ability to combine into unique compositions.
The Bedrock and Landslide patterns are available as carpet tiles, planks, Figura and wall-to- wall carpet offering a multitude of design options for distinctive and functional floorscapes.
Carpet tiles and planks offer a high level of flexibility, easy to install with flawless joints. The square carpet tile is available in two sizes; 48×48 cm or 96×96 cm that can be installed in the monolithic style to mimic the look of wall-to-wall carpet or as quarterturn where pattern and pile direction create a different look. The rectangular plank comes as 24×96 cm and with the Figura concept, innovative tile shapes add an extra geometric touch to the design expression.
Cradle to Cradle Certified, crafted from regenerated and regenerable yarn and fitted with the patented recycled Ecotrust backing, the collection perfectly suits any sustainable flooring project. The felt backing transforms recycled plastic bottles into a soft and strong PET material that’s long lasting with ab impressive acoustic performance.
Abandoned fishing nets and other industrial waste are used for yarn that comprises many of the carpet constructions. Fishing nets account for one tenth of waste in the ocean, drifting for months and posing a threat to sea life. Once collected, the fishing nets are cleaned, broken down and reborn as strong, hardwearing yarn that is both regenerated and regenerable.
