BELGIAN carpet tile manufacturer, modulyss, held a sneak preview of its new showroom in Clerkenwell for Clerkenwell Design Week. Designed by London-based D&B practice, the space provided the opportunity for the architecture and design community to discover modulyss carpet tiles that lead the way in sustainability and design, including 28 Cradle to Cradle Certified Gold products.
Throughout Clerkenwell Design Week (between 24-26 May), modulyss hosted a programme of events at its Clerkenwell Road space, including workshops from Laura Perryman, author of The Colour Bible and a talk from leading sustainability visionary, Chris Hines. The programme reflected the brand’s ambition to make inspiring carpet tiles for a sustainable future.
Jose Hamp, sales director UK & Ireland says, ‘We were hugely excited to be given an exclusive preview of our first dedicated London space for Clerkenwell Design Week. We put on a programme that designers found informative and genuinely useful with actions they can introduce into their projects and everyday lives. I enjoyed welcoming everyone to explore our inspiring and sustainable carpet tiles and check out the progress of our smart new location.’
Renowned ocean campaigner, Chris Hines MBE, founder of Surfers Against Sewage and sustainability director at the Eden Project from 2001-2007, impassioned designers to take positive action on the environmental challenges society faces. Speaking fresh from the beach at the modulyss showroom, this proved to be a unique opportunity to see one of the UK’s most notable sustainability figures.
Author of The Colour Bible and visual identity consultant for leading brands, Laura Perryman, presented Future Trends in Colour. Taking a fascinating walk through how colour and materials shape our perception, Laura workshopped the key colours, modulyss carpet tiles and materials influencing wellbeing and impacting sustainability.
‘Clerkenwell Design Week gave us the chance to engage with the community and explore the ideas shaping the design of commercial interiors. Our showroom saw many new conversations on a more sustainable future started at this year’s festival,’ concludes Jose Hamp.
