Mannington Commercial’s Entwined Collection, a Gold winner of a Nightingale Award, is a high-performance broadloom carpet designed for aged and acute healthcare environments. It is available from GEO Flooring.
The Nightingale Awards recognize contribution to the healthcare built environment through product design and innovation that furthers healing. The products are judged on their contribution to the healing environment, functionality, quality, durability, aesthetics and style, and innovation.
“With Entwined, we wanted to explore new directions in biophilic design. Rather than simply hinting at natural materials and mimicry, we began by abstracting images from nature,” says Roby Isaac, director of design at Mannington Commercial.
The carpet’s design was inspired by heirloom grasses, bamboo and other natural materials. It comes in three large-scale, irregular patterns – Ramie, Husk and Moso. The carpet is finished with stain-defying XGuard and bleach-resistant ColorSafe technology, with flexible backing options. Entwined can be chemically welded to Mannington’s LVT or resilient products to create seamless, bacteria-resistant transitions. www.geoflooring.com.au
