With both soft and hard surfaces, the Material Edit flooring collection from Patcraft offers flexibility, versatility and an inspired visual journey for high-traffic commercial interiors. The cohesive collection was borne of a collaboration between in-house designers Amanda Hopkins and Erin Helm, who were inspired by their shared artistic experience.
Framed around “rediscovery,” each creative began on a different trajectory – Hopkins reflected on her own “lost” artwork (sketches, gesso and paintings) to develop the carpet tile, while Helm looked to natural materials like stone and wood to concoct resilient hard surfaces with playful compositions and unexpected patterns.
With the Material Edit Soft surface range, five subtly varied styles – Crafter, Visionary, Collector, Inventor and Maker – that can be coordinated or contrasted. Made from EcoSolution Q100 yarn (a sustainable material composed of 100 per cent post-industrial recycled content derived from waste) with an EcoWorx backing, the low-carbon, 45.7-by-91.4-centimetre carpet tiles are offered in eight colourways that move from saturated tones to warm and cool neutrals.
Meanwhile, Material Edit Hard surface series includes three resilient styles – Kiln, a textural stone replica; Woodtone, a nature-inspired wood-look; and Curved, an abstract pattern that combines arcs and rounded edges. The three are offered in five complementary colours, which can be used together to devise playful and one-of-a-kind installations. Made from LVT, the 22.8-by-91.4-centimetre planks have a 20-millimetre wear layer and can be seamlessly situated alongside carpet without the need for a transition.
Combing multiple platforms, layered patterns and eye-catching colours, the coordinated Material Edit collection marks a synergy between process and product design and is intended to bring artful visual interest to multi-faceted spaces.
