A modular carpet tile inspired by the natural environment.
July 30th, 2010
Inspired by the natural environment and urban landscapes, the Stonecraft collection of modular carpet tiles from InterfaceFLOR offers textures and colours that conjured up the elements that surround us.
StoneCraft consists of four patterns – Rococo, Platform, San Roco and Bertola – each of which are designed to work together, or on their own, to create spaces that at once reference the unique structure of natural stone while still being rich in warmth and texture.
“Rococo” is inspired by the smooth, rounded, gentle shapes of river and creek bedrocks, formed by thousands of years of rolling water.
“San Roco’s” design reflects the dramatic strata patterns formed by the passing of time on the exposed layers of a cliff face.
The reassuring strength of stacked dry walls inspired the design of “Platform”, emulated through the use of multi-coloured yarns.
Finally, the cut and loop texture of “Bertola” creates subtle and gentle patterns that resemble the softer, more subdued texture of sandstone walls.

Remember Japanese capsule hotels? Although Tokyo is still littered with them, many conjure up a kitsch fad that has passed its heyday. Faced with the task of renovating one, Schemata Architects embraced a no-nonsense retro aesthetic to unite the two activities of sleeping and steaming.
