THE Cambridge headquarters of Alzheimer’s Research UK has recently been refurbished, including the commissioning of an additional 350sq m of office space, with the Motion /// Vision carpet tile concept from modulyss playing a key role.
Specified within the refurbishment by Alium Design, Motion and Vision carpet tiles in various colourways have been installed through the open plan offices, meeting rooms, break-out space and reception area.
Mike Hole, Alium Design, picks up: ‘We wanted a carpet tile that graduated colour from a neutral base, available in different colourways that could blend seamlessly. The meeting rooms are multi-functional, with folding walls, so it was important that they had their own identity yet could come together as whole for when the space is used as one large meeting area.
‘The carpet tiles used in the reception and breakout area, feeding directly off the meeting room suite, needed to be more vibrant and stimulating, but follow the same design. The Motion /// Vision carpet tile collection from modulyss had the style and depth to allow us to meet both tasks.’
Alium Design used 195sq m of carpet tiles from modulyss, using 210 and 315 colourways in Motion and 210, 315 and 914 in Vision.
‘Designed to work seamlessly together, both designs are said to have been made in a high-quality 1/12th gauge construction for precise pattern production and luxurious texture,’ said the company. ‘Tufted from stain and fade-resistant polyamide for easy maintenance and wear-resistance, Motion /// Vision is a high-performance Class 33 carpet tile for demanding commercial use.’
Mike Hole continues: ‘We were looking for a durable floor finish in a varied palette that could accommodate changing colour without using cut-ins. Motion /// Vision gave us this flexibility and comes as a good quality carpet at a sensible price.’
Said to feature Back2Back recycled content backing and with a 15-year commercial warranty, Motion and Vision have been designed to work individually, together or collectively; reportedly allowing interior designers to create layouts that reflect the fluidity and rhythm found in modern workspace design.
What’s more, says the company, it’s the first to utilise the Balta Group’s in-house yarns, developed to offer what’s described as high-performance stain and fade resistance and vivid colour clarity to break new design ground.
