Each region of flooring featured in our new Clerkenwell office has been carefully selected from the collections of some of our very best suppliers.
These active and innovative flooring designs from Bolon, Amtico, Interface and Tarkett DESSO have been fitted by our partners at Affinity to best support the intuitive division of our showroom workspace. Let us introduce you to key players in the business as we take you on a tour around our brand-new offices.
Bolon By You, Stripe – Bolon are pioneers in flooring, and this product is no exception. The layered, driving design made using recycled materials leads you through and around our ground floor agile area, covering a huge 254 square metres. With warp in Black and weft in Ocean Gloss, and built to durability classification 33, we chose this flooring to last, as well as for its immediate dynamism and inspiring design.
The playful Amtico custom design at our teapoint interplays with Bolon’s Stripe and Tarkett’s brightly cut Traverse.
Spacia, Stellar Smoke – Across both ground and first floors, our walkways are supported by this resilient, fluid tile, designed to mimic the natural diffusion and refraction of light. With its unique urethane coating, covering over 139 square metres of our workspace, this high-quality and durable vinyl will guide you between points of interest as you move throughout our office.
Custom Design – Covering 36 square metres, this light-hearted vinyl with its bright triangular slices is laid to a bespoke pattern and colours selected carefully in collaboration with the designers at Amtico. This product is a personal favourite of ours, setting the tone in our ground floor teapoint area, and we hope it will inspire our visitors to the possibilities of custom flooring.
Interface’s textural carpet tile features as part of our first floor workspaces.
Look Both Ways, Step This Way – Inspired by the textural qualities of concrete, this sensate design in contrasting Ash and Ebony holds the soft divides between allocated working areas on our first floor, with around 375 square metres of coverage. Our long-term partners at Interface easily enabled our vision of a cool, neutral flooring palette, allowing pops of colour to emerge elsewhere in the space.
These colourful variations of Tarkett DESSO carpet are laid in a dynamic custom pattern.
iQ SURFACE, Rouge Airy – This playful and hardy homogeneous vinyl provides the base for our main print room. Covering 47 square metres, its confetti-like design opens up the creative space without compromising on toughness. It’s completely multi-purpose, and can even be used as a wall covering, though we’ve opted to use it exclusively as flooring in our space.
DESSO, Traverse – This linear carpet straddles the front and centre of our ground floor working space with over 135 square metres of coverage, as well as supporting spaces on our first floor. We chose to cut and layer these pieces in alternating oblongs of colour to add a sense of play to our agile working area.
DESSO, Metallic Shades – In colour combination 2942, this comforting tile is made using 80% recycled materials, and lines the floors of our boardroom, phone booths, and meeting rooms, which covers 110 square metres of our total space.
