As more people begin to return to the office, Forbo Flooring Systems wanted to create a carpet tile collection that would help blur the boundaries between the workspace and home; adding warmth, comfort and subtle visual interest to help employees feel more relaxed and at ease. The new Tessera Perspective carpet tile collection does just that. Manufactured using cut and loop technology, the tip-sheared aesthetic of the new high-end range delivers a feeling of luxury, making it the ideal solution for workspaces where a stylish contemporary design is desired.
Designed, manufactured and stocked in the UK, the Tessera Perspective collection features a delicate lattice weave that has been developed through the use of two different, yet tonally similar yarns. The blended surface textures means that each tile absorbs light differently, creating a rich and opulent aesthetic that subtly changes when viewed from different perspectives.
Available in 14 different colourways, the palette comprises eight neutral tones and six vivid jewel-like shades. This makes it ideal for offices where zoning or breakout area definition is required, but without interrupting the overall aesthetic of the floor. Tessera Perspective can also be easily combined with Forbo’s Allura Flex LVT using the same adhesive, or Allura Ease adhesive-free LVT, without the need for transition strips, additional profiles or inconvenient subfloor build-ups. This can help to create integrated workspace designs.
Donna Hannaway, Head of Marketing UK and Ireland at Forbo Flooring Systems, commented: “With a pile weight of 670gsm, the tiles not only deliver the ultimate underfoot comfort, but also provide a seamless broadloom appearance when installed in a monolithic layout. In addition to its luxury, high-end aesthetic, our Tessera Perspective collection can also contribute to a more comfortable working environment and the health and well-being of end users, as it can reduce impact sound by up to 25dB. It also meets the Ska criteria for M12 soft floor coverings.”
Made using renewable energy, Tessera Perspective contains an impressive 65 per cent recycled content by weight and is manufactured using 100 per cent solution-dyed Refresh by Universal Fibres Nylon 66 and Nylon 6 with 30 per cent recycled content. What’s more, clean installation off-cuts can also be collected for free through Forbo’s Back to the Floor programme.
