Offering a variety of neutral grey tones, alongside more vibrant red and yellow shades, designers can experiment with the new choice of colours to create the perfect backdrop for a sleek modern interior.


GUI Gold label

The structured loop pile carpet tile features a unique, patented technology which is proven to be eight times more effective in capturing and retaining fine dust than smooth flooring solutions (PM10) and four times more effective than standard carpet solutions (PM10)[1]. Following rigorous tests from the independent German test institute GUI, which specialises in the analysis of indoor and outdoor air quality, DESSO AirMaster® became the first product in the world to be certified with a GUI Gold label.[2]

“Today, most people spend 90% of their time indoors, so it’s imperative that we create healthy interiors. As a supplier of carpets, we believe it is our responsibility to develop products that contribute to a healthier living and working space. By extending the AirMaster® Atmos range we hope to offer designers more creative possibilities to enable them to build healthier spaces without having to compromise on aesthetic effects.“

Cradle to Cradle® principles

In line with DESSO's ongoing commitment to sustainability, the AirMaster® Atmos collection comes with DESSO EcoBase® as standard backing. This EcoBase™ backing contains at least 70% positively defined recycled content, in accordance with Cradle to Cradle® principles. The carpet tiles also contain ECONYL® yarn - a 100% regenerated nylon made from recovered waste materials such as fishing nets and yarn waste from DESSO's own Refinity® pilot facility, which separates the yarn and other fibres from the backing.
