The beauty of imperfection
Imperfection brings beauty to life and gives it a soul. This philosophy inspired us to create the Imperfection collection. Grit, Bruut and Rupture, bring natural colours and organic textures. Made with sustainable materials, their superior sound-dampening qualities mean these carpet tiles contribute to the wellbeing of every office and hospitality space.
Finding beauty in the imperfect
Belgian photographer Lennert Madou’s style embodies the philosophy of the Imperfection collection. He seeks the beauty in the imperfect by not photographing his models, but their distorted reflections. This experimental approach has resulted in a series of unique photographs capturing the soul of our new premium carpet tile collection.
"I like to deliberately seek out imperfections. That makes the result much more human, sensitive and unique."
Lennert Madou, fashion photographer
With characterful simplicity, Grit gives every room soul. The yarn works its way through simple woven structures to reveal subtle imperfections.
Bruut emphasises the transience of materials by creating a surprisingly raw effect. The pattern evokes exciting dynamics and gives the beauty of a unique character to any space.
Rupture adds merit to the imperfect, bringing life to any space. A golden finish perfects the imperfections in this highly textured design.
Supporting wellbeing in offices and hotels
Imperfection is made with high-quality, sustainable materials that support user wellbeing through good underfoot comfort, impressively quiet acoustics, and pure air quality. These benefits come together for a true sense of comfort in office and hospitality spaces.
A quiet and comfortable
All Imperfection carpet tiles come with our EcoFlex™ Echo acoustic backing that reduces impact sound by 25% and improves sound absorption by up to 100%. Insulating against the sounds of footsteps and the background noise of busy offices and hospitality spaces, EcoFlex™ Echo ensures optimal acoustic performance. With excessive noise known to affect productivity and comfort, offices and hotels using Imperfection are supporting the wellbeing of everyone.
What’s more, we make this high-performance backing with 94% recycled polyester felt, for a carpet tile that’s not only quiet and comfortable, but more sustainable too.
Regenerated yarn for a sustainable carpet tile: Econyl® - 100% regenerated nylon
The Imperfection collection is made with ECONYL yarn, a performance nylon that’s made from fishing nets, ghost nets, old carpets and fabric scraps. Rescued from all over the world, this waste is regenerated through a depolymerisation process that ensures the same purity and performance features of virgin nylon. This raw nylon is remade into ECONYL carpet yarn and we reimagine this into the sustainable Imperfection collection.
Through the quality of ECONYL, we’ve been able to explore the flaws, marks, blotches and defects of Imperfection to create a premium carpet tile collection that performs beautifully in offices and hospitality spaces.
