This eye-catching, 3 dimensional effect floor concept was designed by Karpinski Interiors in partnership with One Point Zero Interiors for a client in the marketing and advertising industry. The 300mē of Standard XL tiles in Dove White, Black Panther and Slate Grey from Polyflor South Africa were installed in a continuous, chequered pattern by flooring contractors Top Carpets and Floors Little Falls.
Ensuring that the installers copied the pattern exactly was no easy task. Tom Karpinski from Karpinski Interiors commented, “We ended up having to do an initial mock-up of the floor so that the installers could get their head around the geometrical pattern and order in which we wanted the tiles to be laid to achieve the desired effect. They even joked of feeling that the patterns made them feel slightly lightheaded and giddy, which was exactly the impact we wanted the floor to make.”
