Vorwerk flooring is opening up new horizons for creative floor design with TEXtiles SL, the new modular collection of carpet tiles. Unique shapes, colours and one-of-a-kind articles in this innovative product line support architects, spatial planners and interior designers in making their design concepts a reality, right down to the last detail. Working together with renowned designers Werner Aisslinger and Hadi Teherani, tiles arose in highly expressive and diversely combinable geometries. The free-form shapes by Aisslinger and Teherani along with a line of rectangular formats are available in completely new worlds of colour and a variety of textures to achieve surprising point-of-view effects. The result: The floor is turned into a distinctive spatial element, an integral part of an architectural synthesis of the arts.
Werner Aisslinger has designed 6 new freely styled shapes which are being offered under the designation “FREE-FORM”: The expressive geometries entitled “TRAPEZ”, “DARTS” and “DIAMONDS” generate a surprising, three-dimensional effect caused by the interplay between colour and shape. Their impact on perspective is astonishing and sophisticatedly contrasted due to the change in surface texture. “TRIPOD” and “PRISMA” are reminiscent of the chains in molecular structures; they bring a discriminating spectrum to the field of floor architecture. “STRIPE” takes the shape of a classic wooden plank and interprets it anew. Bevelled angular ends break up the linear alignment, enabling the possibility for vibrantly dynamic looks.
The ‘tried-and-true’ free-form carpet tiles “CRYSTAL_S”, “CRYSTAL_L” and “PARTITION” by Hadi Teherani, which had already co-shaped the programme at Vorwerk in the SCALE/FreeSCALE collection back in 2008, are equally a part of the current comprehensive TEXtiles SL collection, as well as in FREE-FORM.
