Building blocks: Philadelphia Commercial’s Simple Mechanics collection

Philadelphia Commercial introduced the Simple Mechanics collection. Inspired by the building blocks of machines, the collection is available in 14 neutral colors to blend into any color palette; and includes two 18 by 36 inch carpet tiles (Straight Shift and Shifting Gears). 

Straight Shift is an unstructured open weave pattern made of vertical and horizontal lines that come together. Meanwhile, Shifting Gears is Philadelphia Commercial's interpretation of the inclined plane; it has diagonal elements balanced by irregular striping to create faceted shapes and angles like those used in modern architecture.

Simple Mechanics Collection is Cradle to Cradle Silver Certified and contributes to LEED credits and is backed by our Environmental Guarantee.
