New abstract capsule collection designed to push the boundaries of design

AVAILABLE since 1 November, the new Opus abstract collection from ‘the UK’s market leader in luxury vinyl flooring’ Karndean Designflooring is designed to offer what’s described as complete creative freedom to architects and interior designers looking to make a statement with a unique floor.

Says the company: ‘Revolutionising its abstract portfolio, the new Opus abstracts capsule collection introduces 22 new colourways in a range of tones, textures and sizes inspired by traditional trends from the Italian Renaissance, including natural stone, textiles and man-made materials. The designs include organic pigments with a textile base, terrazzo from the Adriatic coast and stucco reimagined for the 21st century as well as distinctive stencilled and abstract visuals on natural stone bases and timeless poured and speckled concretes.’

Designed to bring impact to a range of settings including hospitality, retail and community living schemes, the new designs can be paired with existing wood planks and stone tiles from the Opus range to create imaginative bold bespoke floors that are intriguing and impactful. The collection offers ample opportunities to create visual movement with areas of pattern in perfect symmetry or offset designs for a disjointed uniformity that takes the concept of abstract flooring to a whole new level.

‘We’ve long championed flooring without bounds when it comes to creating impressive designs that engage and provoke a reaction,’ explains Fleur Carson, commercial sales director at Karndean Designflooring. ‘Design is a journey and we see it as our mission to design materials that support this with endless possibilities, fuelling creativity and promoting individuality. The new Opus abstract collection offers total freedom to curate designs that are truly unique.

‘We’re proud of the craftmanship of our product designers and what has been achieved by creating such detailed textures and textiles. Replication of natural wood and stone designs has always been a fundamental part of what we do and we wanted to expand these boundaries to open up new territory and opportunities for design. We’re excited to see how designers will use our new portfolio to let their imaginations fly.’

Karndean’s new Opus abstract designs reportedly feature an R10 slip rating and 0.55mm wearlayer, making these suitable for a wide range of residential and commercial settings.

The company concludes: ‘Naturally warmer and softer underfoot than real wood and stone, Karndean flooring is also compatible with underfloor heating systems and is easier to keep hygienically clean, requiring no resealing or resurfacing. For enhanced acoustics, Karndean’s glue-down designs can be installed over Versilay InstaShield to achieve impact sound reduction of 21dB.’
