The use of technology and innovation has reached a new level with the launch of an innovative collection of modular carpet planks that seek to explore the symbiotic relationship between nature and data through the visualisation of water.
As one of the world’s leading producers and distributors of quality commercial flooring, the Mohawk Group believes that better floor coverings emerge from better design, innovation, sustainability, project solutions and operational excellence.
In May, the Mohawk Group announced the launch of Data Tide, their new modular carpet plank collection, cleverly named after the fluid designs depicting water in various settings of nature, from the unique ecosystem of estuaries where freshwater and saltwater converge to sequester Blue Carbon and support biodiversity.
Nature Inspired Biophilic Designs
Mohawk Group’s design team used data sets from environmental studies of greenhouse gases to create biophilic patterns through a custom-built data visualisation tool. With this graphic interpretation of the data, the collection celebrates the positive ecological influence of Blue Carbon capture.
Data Tide is one part of Mohawk Group’s larger sustainability effort, The Waterways Project. This project highlights new products, technologies and initiatives to give back to and restore the living rivers that sustain life.
The Waterways Project features collections designed to foster a symbiotic relationship with rivers and workspaces, encouraging respect for and protection of water ecosystems. The project’s designers and engineers seek to develop products that are healthy and free of toxins, socially responsible and respectful of worker’s rights, and that positively impact the environment.
