Belgium’s diverse landscape is the inspiration behind Heritage, a carpet tile collection from modulyss that’s full of Cradle-to-Cradle Certified Gold and Silver options that can be specified carbon neutral.
With the carpet tile designs of Cobbles, Haze, Dune, Meadow, and Polder, modulyss is taking offices on a voyage of discovery through the landscapes connected to the company’s Belgian heritage. From the ever-changing coastline in the west, to the iconic cobblestone roads and the fertile polders more inland, the designs are said to bring the essence of a connection to the places of our memory.
‘For me, it’s about a need to go back to our roots and reminisce in familiar and comforting memories. I drew on the thriving history of the Flemish textile industry, Belgian artists I admire and the landscapes of my youth. Heritage weaves together past and present, reflecting the shapes, textures and colours of Flemish landscapes,’ explains the collection’s designer, Ruben De Reu.
The Heritage collection includes a range of Cradle-to-Cradle Certified Gold and Silver solutions, also available with modulyss’ Limit Your Footprint programme for a carbon neutral carpet tile.
Made with ECONYL fibre and the ecoBack Cradle-to-Cradle Certified Gold backing, any remaining carbon is reportedly independently assessed and negated through the C02RE initiative, which sees emissions offset. Currently, modulyss supports projects in Africa to reduce inefficient and harmful traditional cookstoves and open fires. Replacing these sees a 50% reduction in fuel and 35% less greenhouse gas emissions.
Says the company: ‘modulyss has ensured designs and colours in Heritage can be coordinated to provide the design flexibility that’s demanded by today’s agile workspaces.
The collection’s colour palette ensures a great range of commercial interiors can benefit from Heritage’s unique designs. So, whether an arrangement to create activity zones or use as a field carpet tile, the muted and earthy natural tones set an elegant response to schemes looking for a sophisticated floor that has great environmental prowess.’
Made in the country that inspired it, Heritage is described as the striking new carpet tile collection now available from modulyss.
