Patcraft’s new Mixed Materials collection, unveiled this week at NeoCon 2014 (showroom 10-160), is the first collection of its kind, integrating carpet and resilient side-by-side without interruption. The collection’s innovative engineering and design enables designers to designate spaces within open, collaborative environments using mixed materials and shapes.
“We set out to solve the greatest flooring challenge with collaborative spaces – and we did. Patcraft’s new flooring option provides unique alternatives for the commercial market to define spaces in ways that only walls and furniture have been able to do in the past,” said Patcraft creative director Pamela Rainey, ASID, IIDA, whose inspiration and team collaboration led the development of Mixed Materials. “We were inspired by designers and end users who need the ability to transition flooring in collaborative work and learning spaces. By using resilient and carpet tile without limitations, designers are liberated to create visual cues that better allow for the learning, creating, healing, selling, and collaborating that take place in open environments.”
Patcraft’s Mixed Materials collection is engineered so that the carpet and resilient work together – using different shapes as well as Patcraft’s 24” square carpet tiles - eliminating past constraints and obstacles including transition strips, complicated installations, time-consuming cutting techniques, and abrupt starts and starts in the mix of hard and soft surfaces. In creating the line, Patcraft’s design team found inspiration from designers and manufacturers who are seamlessly combining hard and soft materials, including wood, metals, fabrics, and other contrasting materials. Available in both carpet and resilient tile, the collection can be used to create unique patterns in the space including room-defining insets, large-scale graphic patterns, and wayfinding elements.
