Béton is inspired by the natural organic surface of freshly laid concrete. With a subtle interaction of color tone, the collection provides an undulating texture for an aesthetically neutral backdrop to compliment with any interior. 

The modernist charm of concrete is undeniable, yet in the modern office acoustics, softness and warmth are both essential qualities in flooring. Above Left’s Béton is the solution to this conundrum. Backed by the groundbreaking EcoSoft technology containing 50 recycled PET bottles per square metre, the carpet delivers twice the sound absorption compared to hard backed carpet tiles, is soft underfoot and thermally efficient – not to mention an aesthetic delight.

Created as a standalone pattern to suit any variety of commercial, education, retail, hospitality, healthcare project or more, the multiple tonal shades enable a multitude of placement options. Being able to use plain accent colour modules to juxtapose and coordinate with other finishes offers interior designers complete freedom of expression when designing.

Above Left is the national distributor for Carpets Inter. More than just a manufacturer of world-class carpet solutions, Carpets Inter has in-house capabilities to deliver on flooring projects with a vertically integrated production system, everything from fiber and yarn extrusion, wool and synthetic yarn spinning and dyeing, to twisting, heat setting, weaving, tufting and finishing is handled by designers and engineers who care about carpets.

Carpets Inter’s Béton is the perfect solution for adding a touch of modernist industrial charm without sacrificing comfort and sound absorption for your office.
