Long capable of producing high-resolution carpet patterns, Milliken & Company’s patented Millitron printing technology has attained new heights in the Allume collection, targeted at public spaces in hotels. Its four tile patterns, Focus, Radiant, Reflective, and Streams, pay homage to light as the ultimate natural resource the factor that determines visual response to built environments by demonstrating varying aspects of luminosity.
Each 36-inch square is cut-pile PVC-free Invista nylon tufted on an on woven synthetic back in gand treated with AlphaSan and StainSmart to repel spills, mold, and mildew. And each is printed individually, so gradients of color remain consistent even in over scale patterns. Furthermore, all four are perfect candidates for Milliken’s new In Code installation system.
After interior designers draft a map, each tile is injection dyed with a placement code detectable only in UV light. So it’s possible to dream up extremely elaborate configurations with confidence that they will appear, accurately, on-site. 800-241-4826; millikencarpet.com. circle 412
