Warm wood, ceramic gres, synthetic leather, soft fabric — Rimadesio’s Modulor makes it easy to devise a contemporary textured wall in a multitude of materials. The aluminum frame system accommodates wall panels in four standard sizes (custom dimensions are also available). As added bonuses, cleverly designed specialty bracketing that adjusts for uneven walls and floors ensures that every composition results in a clean-lined grid, while coordinated shelving, door handles and suspended glass cabinetry deliver extra functionality while maintaining a cohesive aesthetic. For anyone longing to reawaken their sense of touch after months of heavy hand-sanitizer use, look no further.

Taking its cues from the straw tatami mats popular in traditional Japanese homes, Tarkett’s modular flooring system offers a decidedly homey and flexible alternative to permanent broadloom carpets in office settings. Four sizes of modules can be linked together with a temporary adhesive that allows for easy release when it comes time for a new layout. For instance, one flooring square could be used to define a space for independent work, while an adjacent mat laid down in a contrasting pattern might distinguish a zone meant for collaboration. Durable cationic nylon fibre construction ensures that segments hold up to heavy traffic, even throughout multiple reconfigurations. In other words, bring on those office renos.
