Back to the Roots of Flooring
Rudiments takes us back to our roots with random lay mix and match carpet tiles inspired by original flooring materials.
From hewn stone floors and hand-shaped clay tiles to coarsely cut wood blocks and artistic textiles woven from organic threads, Rudiments celebrates the flooring materials that have been closely linked to culture for centuries. In random lay styles that can be mixed up and matched together, Rudiments is made in Belgium for a carpet tile collection that brings new meaning to our connection with natural flooring materials.
Bold texture to echo age-old stone
Rooted in ancient and timeworn stone blocks, Basalt is a random lay carpet tile to add bold texture in mix and match schemes that take flooring back to its roots.
Basalt takes its direction from the mineral-rich formations found in volcanic rock, creating a random organic pattern well-suited to adding bold texture across large areas. The rise and fall of Basalt’s structure echoes its origins as a material of ancient culture, connecting us with nature and history in a surprising way.
The random lay design is available in all 12 colours of the Rudiments carpet tile collection. By blending functional colours with complementing trend hues, Basalt’s duo-tone colourways are both practical and inspirational, mixing and matching to bring balance to commercial interiors.
The elegance of woven natural textiles
Born from hand-woven natural textiles, Jute is a mix and match carpet tile that gives a subtle and undeniably elegant look to schemes exploring the cultural significance of flooring.
The coarsely spun plant threads of woven hessian bring natural meaning to the subtle and elegant Jute. This all-over design inspired by the earliest hand-woven floors, offers a subtle approach to the use of texture across open areas, its pattern mirroring the cossetting effect of organic textiles for a carpet tile that relaxes the spirit.
Jute comes in all 12 colours of the Rudiments collection, using combinations that blend functional colours with complementing trend hues for mix and match combinations that bring harmony to commercial projects.
Structure built on our connection to wood
Exploring our innate connection with wood, Teak is a random lay carpet tile with a structured look and a casual touch for endless mix and match possibilities.
Teak’s beginnings can be found in the light and shade thrown by oiled blocks arranged in arbitrary geometric patterns, setting a structured yet casual aesthetic across open spaces. The pattern echoes varying block heights, bringing random bright lifts and dark depths that add a surprising graphic dimension to this naturalistic carpet tile.
Mixed and matched with other styles from Rudiments, Teak’s well-balanced tonal combinations are a sophisticated random lay addition to today’s commercial interiors.
