Tarkett creates a ‘Home away from Home’ for UK workplaces with new DESSO® Linon collection

09 October 2018 - From the Ancient Greek word for Linen, the new DESSO Linon collection, takes inspiration from the timeless appeal and tactility of irregular woven fabrics and gives the look renewed relevance with a refreshing pop of pastel.

Linon's 18-strong colour line is what sets this collection apart. Nine natural shades stay true to the raw simplicity that makes this textile application so versatile, while the rest of the palette allows specifiers to explore more playful routes for zoning. Hushed, dusky pink tones, mauves and light blues sit alongside greys and other near neutrals. The insightful use of colour and texture comes together to create a soft, homely canvas with a welcoming, smart-casual appeal - fitting for today's workplace settings.

“It is the intricate detail and appealing neutral colour palette that really bring this new carpet collection to life. It offers a softness and tactility to commercial spaces, creating a ‘home away from home’ in the workplace.”

Ludwig Cammaert, Design and Technical Development Director for DESSO carpets at Tarkett


Cradle to Cradle® Philosophy

Made from 100% ECONYL® yarn - a regenerated nylon made from recovered waste materials such as fishing nets and carpet yarn from Tarkett's Refinity® recycling facility, Linon has exceptional sustainability credentials. 

The collection also features the Cradle to Cradle® Gold Level certified DESSO EcoBase® backing as standard, which is fully recyclable in our own production facility. The 50 x 50 cm structured loop tile is a great office all-rounder that respectfully and creatively challenges tradition.

DESSO Linon's versatility mean it also combines seamlessly with Tarkett iD Square LVT enhancing the creative design experience of modern designers and architects. Together, the two collections assist designers in making playful yet functional workspaces that perfectly balance the feel of home and office with expertise.
