Nutopia is a modular carpet plank system inspired by the idea of “urban fabric,” where humankind coexists with buildings, streets and other infrastructure. With people moving to cities in search of opportunity and community, urban areas are constantly changing and embracing new ways of working and living. To develop this vision for the collection, designers looked at metaphors for how urban design can translate into patterns of balance, acceptance and integration—where the poetry of city life is embraced and woven together into a mélange of culture and contact.
Nutopia gives designers the opportunity to delineate spaces using variable material changes via pattern, color and texture. Gestural washes, accents, cool greys, warm taupes and textured ground provide rich visual dimension for contract spaces. Four styles within the collection can be used together as a cohesive system or individually—transitioning across the floor plane or creating defined areas. Layouts can be subtle, or vivid and dramatic, just like the dynamics of city life. The 12x36 carpet plank collection is designed to meet the stringent requirements of Living Product Challenge Petal Certification, so that it gives more back to the environment than it takes during its entire life cycle. At the intersection of distinct sustainability and design innovations, Nutopia invites and inspires designers and end users to create interiors that are unique to their own culture and identity.
