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.
Through two patterns – Distortion and Vibration – and six colour options, Major Frequency explores the relationship between sensory sound and physical movement interpreted into two patterns that create harmony within a space. It’s a particularly relevant collection developed to meet the unprecedented challenges of the current economic environment by offering a solution to the budget constraints faced by many clients at this time, whilst still providing high-end and differentiated styling.
Manufactured in the UK, Major Frequency is made up of two connecting designs: Vibration and Distortion, which can be used on their own or combined to create transitions. Vibration is stippled and robust, harnessing a finer, more saturated vitality. It is an organic linear textured design, that creates subtle movements across the floor. Distortion expresses a slightly larger yet more diluted flow within positive and negative space – amplifying texture to bring an additional sensory element to the floor plane thanks to tufted loop construction techniques.
The colour palette is effortlessly usable with a subtle range of greys, and is suitable for a wide range of interiors from offices to schools and hotel rooms with its user friendly warm and cool neutral palette. Walkways can be created and different aesthetic effects achieved by laying the tiles in a herringbone pattern. Major Frequency can also be combined with other Milliken collections for zoning and inset rug effects.
Major Frequency comes with Comfort Lite backing made of 90% recycled content, dramatically reducing noise levels. Milliken cushion backed carpet tiles absorb 50% more noise than hardback carpet, which in turn absorb three times as much noise as hard surface flooring.
An online visualiser is available on the Milliken Floors website to enable customers and designers to interact with the product and try out endless layouts. There are 40 pre-selected rooms to choose from or the client’s own scheme can be uploaded for an accurate representation of Major Frequency in situ.
