stunning iconic carpet tile completes desso’s essentials collection

31 January 2017 - Desso, a leading brand in sustainable and innovative carpet flooring, completes its Essentials II collection with the introduction of Iconic – a celebration of the archetype of colour, perfect for creating impactful designs across the floor.

The collection offers a kaleidoscope of 24 colours - with vibrant tones sitting alongside neutral shades, allowing designers to set the tone for energetic open spaces, meeting rooms or zoning in the workplace.

Inspired by woven textiles

Inspired by woven textiles, Iconic's design has been created using a unique tufting technique, which gives the tactile carpet tile hidden depths. The layered design brings together two contrasting hues to deliver subtle, inspirational unique undertones, adding playful design and interest to flooring schemes. Adding further intrigue and impact, the all-over colour is ingrained by concealed lines, which are subtly revealed from different points of view in an interior space.

“The Iconic collection offers architects and designers a chance to look at flooring from a different perspective. We designed this range to offer surprising possibilities for specifiers with a show-stopping result that demands a double-take”.

Ludwig Cammaert, Design and Technical Development Director at Desso

Carpet tile contains 100% up-cycled chalk

As expected from a Desso collection, Iconic carries a positive sustainability message: available only with EcoBase™ backing, the carpet tile contains 100% up-cycled chalk from local drinking water companies. Thanks to its ECONYL® content, Iconic adheres to Desso's Cradle to Cradle® philosophy, containing fully regenerated nylon yarn made from recovered waste materials, such as fishing nets and post-consumer yarn waste, from our own Refinity® plant. 

“The environment is of course always a central focus, so it was important for us to make sure this collection came standard with the EcoBase™ backing that is 100% recyclable in Desso’s own production process”.

Roland Jonkhoff, Managing Director at Desso and Vice President, Carpet (EMEA) at Tarkett
