ONE Global Design and Mannington Create Intrinsic, Inspired by Nature and the Eames

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.
