Tarkett’s new LVT collections set to inspire creative expression

Following on from the successful launch of its innovative ‘Floor is the new Playground’ concept, Tarkett has now introduced even more Luxury Vinyl Tile options (LVT) into its iD Inspiration range to further inspire creative expression.

Colour plays an important part in the new LVT offer being launched by Tarkett, with numerous new hues and shades available, as well as innovative designs such as ‘Metal Frame’, an original metallic effect mixed on top of pastel colours. Ideally suited to create impactful flooring, the designs – which were researched over four years – are perfect for a wide range of sectors,  including retail, hospitality, education, office and commercial environments. 

As part of the new iD Inspiration launch, Tarkett is showcasing the new LVT options and exploring ‘Poetic Technology’, at the Architect@Work event taking place at Olympia London between 25 – 26 January 2017.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the range Florian Bougault, Art Director, Tarkett Stores & Shops, Hospitality and Leisure says: “We firmly believe that good design can create a lasting impression on how people experience a space, especially in retail and hospitality environments. With the extensive range of options available in the iD Inspiration collections, flooring can be customized and personalized to create spaces that build brand image and positively shape the customer experience.”

Collections in the iD Inspiration range with the new LVT options include the widely specified iD Inspiration 55-70, iD Inspiration Click and iD Inspiration 40. As well as having a strong design aesthetic, the collections offer outstanding levels of functionality. 

  • iD Inspiration 55-70 – offers endless combinations through the extensive combination of format, design, surface structure and beveling. Advanced customization is also possible with the innovative FLOORCRAFT program, which allows logos and images to be incorporated into designs.

Four new formats are being introduced this autumn, as well as additional feature strip colours to create visual effects.

  • ID Inspiration Click – easy to install thanks to the fold-down click system. In addition, when combined with Tarkett’s innovative Tarkomfort acoustic underlay, iD Click achieves 19dB impact sound reduction.
  • iD Inspiration 40   – versatile and durable, the collection comes in 34 colours and patterns, with effects such as wood and polished concrete – making it suitable for high traffic, commercial areas.
