Flooring solution: SineEffect by Jhane Barnes from Tarkett

Tarkett has launched SineEffect, a new modular and Powerbond soft surface collection from designer Jhane Barnes.

To create SineEffect, Barnes began with a simple grid of circles, then used a graphic synthesizer and an animation technique to manipulate the shapes. By compressing the circles in one direction and elongating in another, they were transformed into this likeness of the rings and undulations of wood grain.

Made in America, SineEffect comes with Ethos with Omnicoat Technology backing, which can be installed over a variety of substrate issues, such as green concrete and old adhesives. Also, Ethos is Living Product Challenge Imperative Certified, 100 percent recyclable through Tarkett’s ReStart reclamation program and Cradle to Cradle Silver.
