The great cities of the world provide inspiration for design and beauty. However, they can also be places of relentless noise. Heavy traffic and overpowering crowds provide the background din over which armies of merchants spruik their wares. Yet in almost every city, there is a quiet and beautiful place where people can find refuge from the busyness of the city. Out on the harbour in Sydney, in the ancient cobblestone backstreets of Milan, or maybe a blossoming Parisian garden. These urban oases provide the inspiration for the Acoufelt Urban range.
Available in eighteen beautiful colourways, Palette carpet tiles are designed specifically to provide the architect or designer with an artist’s palette of vibrant colours to design a space with eye-catching aesthetics. At the same time, the Palette range delivers superior acoustic performance to that of similar floor coverings, allowing a space to be designed for the ears as well as the eyes.
Dark and light tufting moving in rhythmic but random harmony expressing the essence of life in a way that is universally embraced. Latin dance is the inspiration of this ubiquitous floor covering. It can be used in so many different applications with stunning results. An elegant but neutral expression of polytonal design. Latin dance is an expression of life. It is all about moving to the rhythm of life. But to move to the rhythm of life, you have to hear it. Stop. Be still. Hear your heart.
Empedocles described the classical world as consisting of four elements: water, wind, fire and earth. Our ears recognise the crackle and roar of fire, the whistle and bluster of wind and the crash and splash of water but the earth is quiet. Mighty rocks and towering mountains stand silent for a thousand years. The wind may whistle around them, waves may crash on them but they stand tall and silent. The earth remains quiet.
The Monitor collection was inspired by the clean and elegant lines of the design studio itself. Minimalistic workstations with wide screen monitors sit idle late at night. Power-saving mode leaves the screen glowing a dull charcoal while brightly coloured data cables punctuate the lifeless office with a sense of the energy that will fill the room in the morning. This is where we found the inspiration for the Monitor collection design; in the stillness of anticipation.
