Patcraft has launched its latest made in the USA resilient collection, Linocut. Featuring an abstract, textural pattern, the collection’s layered design creates depth and dimension. The visual was inspired by artful experiments with block printing, a process that led to a distinctive geometric aesthetic. Combining artistic inspiration and market insights, the Linocut collection supports the use of shape and color to create emotive spaces.
Incorporating neutral and bright hues within the collection’s 13 colorways, Linocut allows for creative installations, wayfinding and definition of space within the built environment. The initial product visual was inspired by a series of handmade prints that were created using carved print blocks. The artwork featured an organic quality, which was further brought to life during the digital phase of the product development process, as the designer played with scale and layered the design.
Linocut is available in 9- by 36-inch planks and features a 20-mil wear layer for durability. The collection’s multidirectional, abstract pattern serves the functional purpose of hiding scratches, scuffs and dirt while disguising seams, and the flooring is polish and buff optional for hassle-free maintenance. The 5-millimeter product construction allows for installation alongside carpet without the need for transition, and an ExoGuard finish provides enhanced scratch and stain resistance. The collection is designed to perform in high demand environments and offers a 15-year Limited Commercial Warranty.
