Divergent LVT and Carpet Awarded Best of NeoCon Gold for Healthcare

Wooden sunbeds

Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, has been awarded the Best of NeoCon Gold in Healthcare Flooring, for the companion collections, Divergent modular carpet and Divergent LVT.

Inspired by the soothing tranquility of nature and designed for a tremendous variety of healthcare, retail, hospitality, and corporate applications, this line of carpet complements and completes the Divergent Collection of LVT, launched in April 2016.

Commercial applications demands high performance products, so Divergent was designed with a strong emphasis on quality and durability: both carpet and LVT lines stand up to heavy traffic and stains in every kind of setting.

Since Mannington believes that functionality need not come at the expense of aesthetics—the organic beauty of the Divergent Collection renders a calming, spa-like feel. Versatile patterns, from soft lines to strong graphics, deliver a collection that stand alone or play together to create countless unique installations. A neutral palette drawn from wood, soft metals and cool industrial materials, crosses both platforms, coordinating without being overly matched.

Divergent LVT is available in 18”x18” and 18”x36”, while carpet is available in 18”x 36” plank. The cohesiveness of the two Divergent collections is more than visual: Mannington’s Seam+Advantage can chemically welds the LVT and carpet together, creating seamless transitions without transition strips.

Made with renewable materials and pre-consumer content, Divergent LVT is finished with Quantum Guard HP, the highest performing urethane for greater scratch and stain resistance and enhanced slip retardance. Divergent carpet is manufactured Econyl 100% regenerated nylon 6, for superior stain resistance and appearance retention. Both lines can be reclaimed and closed-loop recycled through Mannington’s LOOP®. The modular format of the collection was intentionally designed to reduce waste and downtime. Made in the USA.

The Best of NeoCon® is sponsored by Contract magazine, Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc., The International Interior Design Association (IIDA), The International Facility Management Association (IFMA), and The McMorrow Reports for Facilities Management.

Mannington and ONE Global Design Win Best of NeoCon Silver, HiP Award for Infused Collection LVT

Mannington-Commercial_Infused_3 copy

Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, has won a Best of NeoCon Silver award and a HiP Award for the Infused Collection, a sophisticated mosaic of coordinating graphic LVT patterns.

Van Gogh once said, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” This quote was a touchstone throughout product development of the collection. Designed by ONE Global Design—a network of principal-led design firms in 18 cities across North America—the innovative collection is a modern interpretation of LVT consisting of five patterns: Bordado, Broad Street, Birds Eye, Hustle and Scratch That.

Guided by the concept that “more is more,” the colorful line is a love letter to Mexico City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta and New York. The five cities’ patterns are connected through line quality and shared colorways—a combination of brights and neutrals, infused with the bold and playful spirit of the vibrant cultures that inspired them.

The Infused Collection was created to be mixed and remixed, so that it matches the vision of any designer. Strong enough to stand alone, colors and designs also can be combined to make a bold statement for feature areas, or in tonal and sophisticated ways for quieter spaces. Each pattern is available in 9”x9” and 2.5”x36” formats, and is emboldened with a subtle luster, giving tiles a refined yet striking character that subtly shimmers and shifts as you move across the room.

With a 20-mil wear layer for affordability and durability, the collection is manufactured using patented Quantum Guard HP, an aluminum oxide topcoat cured by an ultraviolet process that enhances scratch and stain resistance, as well as slip-retardance. It is available with Mannington’s advanced underlayment technology, which meets or exceeds all IIC sound requirements. While applicable to any market segment, the Infused Collection is especially well-suited to retail, hospitality and corporate.

The Best of NeoCon® is sponsored by Contract magazine, Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc., The International Interior Design Association (IIDA), The International Facility Management Association (IFMA), and The McMorrow Reports for Facilities Management.

Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, launched the Intrinsic Collection, a boldly beautiful modular carpet collection of 18”x36” planks at NeoCon. The product won a #metropolislikes award from Metropolis magazine, and was an honoree in the Interior Design HiP Awards.

The collection was designed by ONE Global Design, a network of principal-led design firms in 18 cities, from Vancouver to Mexico City, Atlanta to Los Angeles. This unprecedented partnership led to a uniquely dynamic product: the unique contours, fractals and and gently organic nature of the patterns make the collection highly usable in corporate, healthcare, higher education and hospitality markets.

Inspired by the Eames’ Powers of Ten—ranging from the grand scale of topography to the intimacy of a blown dandelion—the collection shapes a captivating interplay of complex organics, visually layered to emphasize seamless textural changes. Intrinsic comprises four patterns: Contour, Intertwine, Magnify and Merge.

The color palette is anchored in neutrals and combined with transitional colors that are both modern and comforting, rich and bold, resulting in a dramatic design statement. Patterns can be used individually or in any mix-and-match combination.

The designers relied on Mannington’s advanced tufting capabilities to create upscale aesthetics with materials that are strong and durable—specifically Antron® Lumena premium nylon 6,6 and Infinity® Modular backing, engineered for strong performance, excellent tuft and dimensional stability. Intrinsic also utilizes XGUARD Stain Resistant Technology COLORSAFE® proprietary Bleach Resistant Technology. Fully recyclable via Mannington’s LOOP® closed-loop recycling program.

Portland Collection Honored by Interior Design magazine

Mannington-Commercial_Portland-Project_2

Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, launched the Portland Collection at NeoCon 2016—where it was recognized as an honoree in Interior Design magazine’s HiP Awards.

Portland’s patterns were inspired by a week of exploration of Oregon’s wild, rugged and remote coastline. Close observation led the design team to four unique styles, where connections become patterns, adventure translates to texture and textile, and a multifaceted color palette, inspired by the coastal wilderness, brings every element perfectly together.

Visually, the styles recall Oregon’s secluded ridgelines and trailheads, interpreted as sharp linear movements and layered striations of color in the collection. Hues range from richly saturated to neutral, coastal-inspired grays and browns. Patterns mix large and small scale, and the 12”x48” plank size reinforces the perception of movement from one tile to the next, evoking a sense of wandering and of wonder.

The Portland Collection’s luxurious textures—both loop and tip shear—and thoughtful approach to classic and emerging color trends make the collection perfect for corporate, retail, higher education and hospitality projects. The generous variety of styles within the collection allows for interpretation in innovative design compositions: designers can conceptualize and realize their own personal vision for a space, whether a bold combination of colors and patterns or subtle understatement.

Portland Project modular carpet is manufactured with Antron® Lumena premium nylon 6,6, and up to 30% pre-consumer recycled content. Infinity Modular backing is engineered for strong performance, excellent tuft bind and dimensional stability. The collection also utilizes XGUARD® Stain Resistant Technology and COLORSAFE® proprietary Bleach Resistant Technology for enhanced durability and lasting quality.
