New Collection Spotlight: Woven Plynyl® Plank Tiles
We recently presented the new Chilewich Contract Collection at NeoCon® in Chicago. The collection focuses on three main introductions; Woven Plynyl® Plank Tiles, White with Silver and White with Gold Textiles.
Woven Plynyl® Plank Tiles take advantage of new manufacturing techniques that Chilewich developed and allow for new shapes and sizes of flooring products to be made.
The Woven Plank shape (6 x 36”) was chosen to allow for ease of installation and to highlight the inherent bi-directional quality of Chilewich’s woven textiles.
The visual effect of the Woven Plank Tiles is one of strong linearity, similar to other natural materials, such as wood or stone. The unique feature of Woven Plank though, is that this specific shape highlights the joints between the planks. Unlike carpet tile that can be visually monolithic when installed, woven fabrics by their nature cannot by monolithic.
The Woven Plank highlights the edges of the planks and makes them a design feature of the product, giving designers a new tool to use the product to enhance a room’s visual appeal. Woven Plank Tiles are available with a vinyl backing or BioFelt® backing.
Joe Sultan, CEO, elaborates on the new design, “It’s exciting to create a beautiful new product that combines design and manufacturing techniques perfectly.” He continues, “With the introduction of Woven Plank Tiles, we’re not just square anymore!”
