The ReForm Transition Ecotrust collection is borne from a desire to bring the architecture of nature into today's modern, professional interiors. Directly inspired by nature's own virtuous, recycling process with seeds transforming into mature, flourishing foliage that eventually will crumble into delicate textures only to become seeds again for a new beginning.
Irregular textures, layers and structures from outdoors translate into interior designs reflecting key elements of this seasonal cycle: Seed, Leaf and Fibre. The organic tactility and sensuous feeling of these materials is defined by a multi-level loop construction that adds depth and interesting detail to the patterns and colours.
The designs are available in an extensive range of soft and faded colours reflecting the hues of nature. They've been carefully researched, coordinated and selected in terms of the role they play in facilitating good physical and mental health; greys and browns from the earth provide a soothing, safe and solid ambience, while greens and blues bring new energy, creativity and optimism.
The colours allow you to experiment with different spatial options that help define areas such as meeting points and quiet or communal zones, as well as catering to social distancing requirements and wayfinding.
The inspiration for this very tactile design is seeds that fall from their pods onto the ground as tiny, promising dots that mark the beginning of new life.
The Leaf design visualises clusters of leaves that create multi-tonal, coloured foliage for a sensuous and nurturing feeling.
In the Fibre design, plants wither and break down into delicate, dry textures revealing the most refined patterns and lines.
Seed, Leaf and Fibre are available as carpet tiles, planks or wall-to-wall carpet to help create distinctive and functional spaces that offer flexibility and variability in their expression and performance. The square carpet tile is available in 48x48 cm or 96x96 cm and the rectangular plank comes as 24x96 cm.
Transition is a great visual toolbox to achieve very different looks depending on the specified size. All designs can be unfolded onto a continuous and unbroken surface when using wall-to-wall carpet, available at a width of 4 metres.
The Transition Mix 48x48 cm tiles combine two standard colours to offer an extra design tool, creating beautiful soft fluid flows between two or more colours. They allow for spatial design combinations with organic movement and fluid effects for unique, soft and sensory expressions.
Interior designers have a myriad of options with Mix tiles. For instance by starting with one colour from one end of the room blending into another colour going to the other end. Or by placing the colour transition in the centre of the room, maybe moving from a light tone to a dark tone and back to light. They can even pick three or more standard colours to work with and achieve more colour variation and movement across the floor.
Established in 2004, Manganèse Éditions is little sister to the internationally acclaimed design and branding agency Saguez & Partners. Based in Paris, Manganèse uses a refined, poetic and timeless approach to create the story of a place. With in-depth knowledge and research into style and colour, they design places and furnishings that are easy to live with and comfortable to use.
The Transition collection is made from eco-responsible materials underpinning its close link to nature. Bearing the Cradle to Cradle Certification, it's a truly green choice for any flooring project. Used plastic bottles are turned into the Ecotrust felt backing, a soft yet strong PET felt material that's long lasting and has great acoustic performance. All carpet tiles and planks come with this unique, patented backing.
Abandoned fishing nets and other industrial waste are used for the ECONYL® yarn that comprises many of our carpet constructions. Fishing nets account for one tenth of waste in the ocean, drifting for months and posing a threat to sea life. Once collected, the fishing nets are cleaned, broken down and reborn as strong, hardwearing yarn that is both regenerated and regenerable.
