Warm mineral office flooring reminiscent of home bases

The new Dolomite carpet tile collection includes the warmth and richness of 12 mineral-inspired tones in the response to increasing demand from the market to employ the benefits of carpet tile in a way that resembles broadloom carpet.

Dolomite, a new carpet tile collection for the commercial workplace inspired by warm mineral colours to remind office workers of their home offices, has been launched by Interface, one of the world’s largest producers of modular flooring.

The new range, which innovatively employs carpet tile in a broadloom fashion, is now available from Interface’s sole South African distributors, KBAC Flooring.

Mandy Leeming, Design Director for Interface Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia (EAAA), says the striking feature of Dolomite is its “luxurious simplicity”. She adds: “The new collection features the form and texture of natural minerals and uses biophilic design principles to support a more healthy and productive environment for office workers as they make their way back to pre-pandemic workspaces.”

Mandy says the light and shade of mineral and metallic colours are frequently encountered in home décor, including home offices. “These raw and earthy tones are now likely to be embellished by selected colour placement by designers of commercial flooring,” she predicts.

The new Dolomite carpet tile collection includes the warmth and richness of 12 mineral-inspired tones. Installed in a monolithic pattern, the collection provides the response to increasing demand from the market to employ the benefits of carpet tile in a way that resembles broadloom carpet.

The Dolomite Collection has a total recycled and bio-based content of 92% with CQuestBio, Interface’s new non-vinyl, non-bitumen backing, as standard backing. When combined with Interface luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) or Interface Nora rubber floors, Dolomite creates a serene and comfortable interior finish.

By specifying Dolomite, and other flooring products from Interface, designers will furthermore ensure that their clients select flooring that is carbon neutral across its full product life cycle through Interface’s third-party verified “Carbon Neutral Floors” programme.
