Industrial inspiration: Offset and Balance by Tarkett

Tarkett launched Offset and Balance from designer Suzanne Tick. Inspired by the unfinished and exposed raw materials used for industrial printing techniques, the carpet tiles are available in modular formats.

Offset is a non-directional, organic pattern that comes and goes with an almost pixelated effect, giving the impression of a transferred design. Balance further builds on this idea by adding a random stitch detail to provide more direction and a playful accent. The color palette includes seven neutrals as well as a deep navy blue. Balance is highlighted by colorful accents including red, blue and yellow.

As part of Tarkett’s sustainability commitment, Offset and Balance are available on ethos Modular with Omnicoat Technology, a Living Product Challenge Imperative certified backing made with PVB film from recycled windshields. The two styles also include Eco-Ensure soil protection technology, a fluorine-free chemistry that is Cradle to Cradle Gold Material Health certified.
