Patcraft has introduced its newest modular collection, Gel Print. Blending soft texture with soothing tonal colors, Gel Print is available in five complementary carpet tile styles in 10 colorways of delicate, casted neutrals. Inspired by artistic exploration with gel plate printing, the abstract patterns build in intensity and color saturation to create and define space in interesting and striking ways.
The product design was inspired by a series of original artwork created through a gel plate printing technique. Amanda Hopkins, product designer for Patcraft, explored different methods of applying paint, using assorted tools to create variation through positive and negative space. The pieces highlighted where the paint pulled away for a layered effect, revealing a unique interpretation of texture and depth.
Gel Print is available in five 18- by 36-inch carpet tile styles in a variety of constructions for flexibility in use throughout commercial interiors. Impress features a circular pattern with varying widths, while Paint Transfer and Composed Layer offer more abstract visuals for pattern variation. The visuals of both Monotype and Unfold feature an elongated, sweeping effect with depth and color saturation for movement and transition across the floor.
Constructed with EcoSolution Q nylon and EcoWorx backing, Gel Print is Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver. As a carpet tile with EcoWorx backing, the collection can be recycled at the end of its useful life to then be remade into EcoWorx flooring through the re[TURN] Reclamation Program. Products are backed with limited lifetime warranties against stain, colorfastness to light, static and abrasive wear for maximum performance and appearance retention.
