Essentials – the essence of timeless design

Desso launches its new carpet tile collection Essentials, based on timeless, uncluttered design using modern twill and diagonal lines

In association with

Desso, a Tarkett company, is introducing Essentials, a new addition to the Carpetecture collection celebrating iconic, pared back design. In a world of infinite choice and variety, the collection presents a ‘less is more’ solution, paying homage to the essence of timeless, uncluttered design.

With two distinct themes, Traverse and Edges, Essentials combines classic carpet textures and colours with clean lines to create a feeling of iconic familiarity, while simultaneously offering something different in interior flooring. Offering the best of both worlds, Essentials is inspired by enduring design, but has all the appeal of a future design classic.

Drawing inspiration from modernism, Traverse uses simple, diagonal lines and tonal shades to create an appearance of movement on the floor, subtly changing from different vantage points. Designers and architects can achieve classic herringbone and ashlar patterns, as well as a myriad of irregular designs to bring the floor to life and create self-contained zoned areas. Traverse is available in 15 rich colours offering a wealth of creative possibilities, to transform simple diagonals into a kaleidoscope of opportunity.

Inspired by timeless fabric designs, Edges, on the other hand, adds tactile movement to the floor with a choice of two varying patterns to suit the pace and rhythm of every unique space. Edges Large is a bold design, using a traditional twill weave and diagonal parallel ribs to create impact across expansive flooring areas. Edges Small is a more delicate pattern, reflecting the subtle irregular beauty of hand woven textiles, perfect for fine detailing. Both designs are available in six shared colourways, with an additional six shades in Edges Small specially selected to complement the shared palette. Both designs work equally well together or individually – presenting endless design options.

The Essentials collection’s timeless, pared back design comes standard with an EcoBase backing that contains upcycled re-engineered calcium carbonate (chalk) from local drinking water companies. The backing is 100% recyclable in Desso’s own production process. The products in this range are certified Cradle to Cradle Silver, ensuring that they contribute positively to the environment, human health and are designed to be recycled in a non-toxic closed loop.

In addition, the Essentials collection contains ECONYL yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon made from recovered waste materials such as fishing nets and yarn waste from DESSO’s own Refinity facility.
