With Play, Tarkett and Note Design Studio interpret circular economy as an inspirational opportunity to design progressive spaces
French multinational flooring company Tarkett has joined forces with Swedish design practice Note Design Studio to introduce the latest edition of the brand’s Play magazine. Since 2018, the two have developed their collaboration, with a longstanding commitment to design and sustainability.
Featuring a curation of sustainable and post-use recyclable Tarkett products, the issue aims to provide inspiration for architects and designers looking to make conscious choices for people and the planet, by using sustainable materials to create eye-catching spaces.
In Play, the notions of Micro, Mezzo and Macro are introduced, to highlight the dialogue between materials and spaces. Exploring each element of the production and design process in detail, from the composition of materials to connecting people and the environment, Micro, Mezzo and Macro demonstrate how a material can contribute to creating an inspirational interior.
“Together with Note Design Studio, we share a vision for embracing a wide range of influences to push the boundaries of Tarkett’s collections”, shares Florian Bougault, Art Director at Tarkett EMEA. “For this edition of Play, the studio has drawn inspiration from across our product families to bring customers closer to some of the most engaging materials in design and architecture.”
“We wanted to draw inspiration from bonds as a design idea, to examine the things which hold not just design together but society”, adds Cristiano Pigazzini, Founder of Note Design Studio. “From the big picture to the things we can’t see but know are there. Play runs through this thinking, beginning by looking at bonds at a Micro level, and the inspiration that comes from material exploration.”
“We then journey onwards into Mezzo, where bonds take on a more decorative role and look at circular production that drives us progressively forward. And finally Play brings things into the wider perspective of Macro, combining the Micro and the Mezzo into vistas, landscapes and spaces.”
