The Transitions carpet tile contains recycled calcium carbonate - chalk - a residual by-product of the water industry. Embracing movement and creative expression, the collection consists of four interpretations of transient times through changes in colour, structure and nature respectively - Fuse, Fields, Pebble and Wave.
With organic patterns, shimmering yarns and textured loop piles - Transitions adds warmth and definition to any office space.
FUSE animates the floor with contrasting yet complementary colour schemes to help zone and divide large interior spaces.
The combination of FUSE and the uni-coloured FIELDS carpet tile allows creative expression with statement floors.
PEBBLE reflects the changeable times through nature by recreating the organic patterns of smooth stones.
The highly textured WAVE carpet tile reflects the subtle ripples of water on a beach.
The judges said:
'Desso continues to innovate in its quest for beauty, innovation and quality - it has added calcium carbonate recycled from the water industry to stabilise the tiles and the new collection is effortless and timeless.'
