how to choose carpet tiles that last - free whitepaper


Any single piece of a bird’s nest is weak. But together, they form a constellation of tiny junctures that, as one, can withstand the strongest winds and the heaviest rain. Consequence builds upon a multitude of simple lines to form a design that is synaptic and yet structural, fractal and yet strong.

Taking cues from the shapes created when a ‘wish tree’ is populated during the ceremonial activity of ‘omikuji’, Sendal explores the angles and geometry viewed while these pieces of tied paper are suspended in the air. Light, effortless and rich in texture, Sendal’s loop and tip shear construction offers a subtle pattern in 18 colours that work elegantly in the workplace or hospitality environment.
Meet Southern Analog

Unlike the unpredictable lo-fi cameras used to inspire it, the Southern Analog collection always delivers worthwhile results. Variegated linear elements create a dreamlike impression of motion. Rhythmic installations take it further still, to provide vistas yet to be conquered.
Meet Sound & Fury

I close my eyes, feel the weight of the paintbrush in my hand, and with the first touch of paint to canvas, lose myself in the music. Moments pass and suddenly I discover a finished painting in front of me. In its texture, I see the thick strokes of the bass line and the delicate, rhythmic marks of a piano solo. In its colour, I see the brightness of a trumpet blare. In the painting, I see the song. In Sound and Fury, I see the same.

Meet Nordic Stories

Our travels have taken us to extreme environments: the surreal contrasts of Iceland, a country powered by nature and made up of sulphurous plains, salt terraces and geothermal pools. This is geological drama at its best, a place where isolation and dark winters create the backdrop to a unique breed of creativity. In contrast the gentle landscape of Denmark. A country peppered with archipelagos and lush forests and home of 21st Century design, where form and function meet utopian ideology.
