Contract carpets - Milliken

FACET is a carpet tile collection created by Milliken’s ‘inspired, prolific’ UK design team.

Says the company: ‘Fine lines converge to create geometric outlines out of which multifaceted reflections emerge.

There are three designs in the collection: ‘Facet’, ‘Facet Accents’ and ‘Facet Transitions’. ‘These allow for flexibility, imagination and experimentation in laying out the floor plane,’ says Milliken.

‘The Facet collection has been created using Milliken’s patented Millitron digital patterning technology. Using Millitron, patterns can be created to randomize across the floor, providing the opportunity for intriguing transition effects as well as suggesting movement and variation.

‘With ease of use and simplicity of coordination in mind, Facet is offered in a range of practical greys, pretty aquas, silvers, zesty lime, acid lemon, burnt orange and inky indigo.

‘Facet comes with Milliken’s patented Comfort Lite cushion-backing as standard to enhance well-being. The cushion backing not only offers underfoot comfort but also improves acoustics. High noise levels have been shown to increase stress levels, which in turn can have a big impact on workers’ overall health and wellness.

Milliken cushion-backed carpet tiles absorb 50% more noise than hardback carpet, which in turn absorb three times as much noise as hard surface flooring. Constructed in a high-performance textured loop, Facet has been designed for projects where clients might be constrained by a tighter budget.’

Facet comes in a 50x50cm tile format and is reportedly available within 10 days of ordering as part of Milliken’s Quick Ship programme.

The carpet tiles’ backing is made from 90% recycled content cushion backing, says Milliken. ‘To further reduce its environmental impact, Facet can be supplied with TractionBack for adhesive-free installation, improving indoor air quality and reducing materials’ usage.’

Facet is produced in an ISO14001 certified facility in Wigan, UK using ethically sourced and wherever possible, locally produced, materials, says Milliken. The collection is certified CRI Green Label Plus and is EPD-verified.
