Milliken at Bentima House
THIS London-based company says it is on a mission to revolutionise the world of serviced offices by creating business centres that nurture healthy working environments and help their tenants focus on making their businesses flourish. The organisation’s new space within Bentima House is located at the heart of the ‘Shoreditch Triangle’, which is fast becoming the largest media and tech hub in Europe.
For this project Milliken’s LVT product heritage wood was chosen. The 10,000sq ft space has now been installed with light grey and white tones of Milliken’s Heritage Wood HER218. As part of its freelay LVT range, it was said to be quick, convenient and clean to install. With floor to ceiling glass walls offering city views, the space is claimed to be fresh and contemporary, suitable for a modern media or tech business.
This is the company’s second installation of Milliken’s heritage wood within their office spaces. The company was reportedly so impressed with Milliken’s LVT product it had installed in its Worship Street site it specified Milliken again for its latest office space development.
Milliken’s Freelay Heritage Wood collection is designed with a distressed, worn and stripped back appearance to offer what the company describes as an elegant aesthetic with powerfully historic references. It is available in four colours to reportedly complement any interior. The Freelay LVT collection includes six designs and is said to offer the additional benefit of effortless adhesive free installation, as well as excellent comfort and acoustic characteristics. Freelay LVT is claimed to be particularly beneficial where regular access to underfloor facilities is needed, such as within commercial environments.
It is part of a reportedly extensive LVT range from Milliken which includes wood, stone and abstract designs. The LVT range, created using high-definition photorealistic imagery, replicates wood and stone (as well as some new abstract designs). What Milliken describes as an authentic appearance is further heightened with micro-bevelled edges and deep embossed textures.
Milliken’s LVT range is reportedly accredited with the highest physical performance classification: Class 34 Very Heavy Commercial Use and comes with a 12 year wear guarantee. Milliken’s multi-layered LVT is said to provide excellent stain and abrasion resistance. The product reportedly boasts a 0.7mm wear layer to reduce scuffs, stains, scratches. Milliken’s LVT range achieves CE mark safety categories for fire, static and slip. R10 and BS slip resist ratings - low to moderate in wet and dry.
As a FloorScore certified product, Milliken LVT is claimed to meet strict indoor air quality and volatile organic compound (VOC) emission criteria for LEED, BREEAM and other green building certifications.
