Rudiments collection, inspired by foundational flooring
With a beginning rooted in foundational flooring materials, Rudiments is a fundamental carpet tile collection for changing face of offices. From stone floors to artistic textile coverings and roughly shaped wood planks, Rudiments finds its ground in flooring materials to which we are intrinsically connected.
Introducing three styles in 12 colours built around principles of strong commercial design and excellent value throughout the lifecycle, Rudiments is the all new Carpet Tile base for IVC Commercial.
Basalt takes its direction from the mineral-rich formations found in volcanic rock, creating a random organic pattern well-suited to adding bold texture across large areas. The rise and fall of Basalt’s structure echoes its origins as a material of ancient culture, connecting us with nature and history in a surprising way.
The fundamental design is available in all 12 colours of the Rudiments carpet tile collection, using tonal combinations to create harmony. By blending functional colours with complementing trend hues, the tone on tone colourways ensure that Basalt can be both practical and inspirational, working to bring balance to commercial interiors.
The coarsely spun plant threads of woven hessian bring natural meaning to the subtle and elegant Jute. This all-over design inspired by the earliest hand-woven floors, offers a subtle approach to the use of texture across open areas, its pattern mirroring the cossetting effect of organic textiles for a carpet tile that relaxes the spirit.
The sophisticated Jute comes in all 12 colours of the Rudiments collection, using combinations that blend functional colours with complementing trend hues, for tone on tone colourways that are both practical and inspirational, working to bring balance to commercial interiors. Used in combination with other Rudiments styles or on its own, Jute’s poise makes this a fundamental carpet tile a case of beautifully executed simplicity.
Teak’s beginnings can be found in the light and shade thrown by oiled blocks arranged in arbitrary geometric patterns, setting a structured yet casual aesthetic across open spaces. The structured pattern echoes varying block heights, bringing random bright lifts and dark depths that add a surprising graphic dimension to this naturalistic carpet tile.
By blending functional colours with complementing trend hues, the foundational tone on tone colourways of Teak ensure that it can be both practical and inspirational, working to bring balance to commercial interiors. Combined with other styles from the collection, or used simply and elegantly alone, Teak is ready to contribute to fundamental design in today’s offices.
