A kaleidoscope of colour at Birdies sports and social space
Hidden under the iconic Battersea Power Station train arches, interior architecture studio SHED has created a cocktail bar and playful golf course.
Milliken’s latest collection Change Agent has been designed by their UK Design Team as a coordinated carpet plank and LVT collection, made up of three designs.
The two carpet designs, Compound Magic and Pure alchemy feature 24 colours in each design, alongside an authentic stone LVT design Earth Science in 10 colours. The LVT colour pallette.
The combined LVT and carpet plank collections are created to mix and match, to create a unique floor plane that can respond to the requriements of each interior. Both the LVT and carpet are supplied in a 100 x 25cm plank format, allowing for creative placement and wayfinding.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the collection, Milliken said: “The artistic inspiration for the collection is metamorphosis – both scientific and magical; the transcendent act of bringing new purpose to natural materials. From alchemy and chemistry the imagery reflects the way base metals can be transformed into precious metals – anodizing, melting, crystalizing; always transforming. ‘Compound Magic’ and ‘Pure Alchemy’ are influenced by the process of metal encountering a catalyst and being driven to radically change.”
The biophilic colour palette has been created with wellbeing in mind, including natural and earthy tones created to bring the outside in and created using Milliken’s patented Millitron® printing technology.
Milliken’s LVT has additional wellbeing attributes for improved acoustic performance with a compact cushion layer to reduce impact sound with its FlexForm SoundTM construction. This layer can reduce impact sound by up to 13dB. The ‘Earth Science’ collection is ‘Loose Lay’ LVT, created for easy, adhesive free installation and maintenance – and is particularly beneficial where regular access to underfloor facilities is needed such as commercial spaces.
