Milliken creates unique crater carpet for Arizona State University

Milliken recently partnered with Ehrlich Architects to renovate the science and technology building on Arizona State University’s campus

The global floor covering division was challenged to design a carpet that would tie all levels of the building while combining gallery space with interactive areas, and incorporate 3-D pictures from a Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera.

  • Milliken’s high-resolution large-scale printing capabilities and color palette enabled a photo-realistic interpretation of crater formations on each tile. 
  • Twenty separate tile designs were combined to create a unique mosaic pattern that was large enough to be visible from a distance but also incorporate small repeats – which could be viewed and enjoyed by people on all levels.

“We wanted to offer those who inhabit the space an informal learning center. In the end, it was a fun challenge to see how we could incorporate beautiful imagery into an environment that would be appreciated, understood and learned by many.” - Kip Hodges, ASU’s School of Earth & Space Exploration Director​
