Tandus Flooring | August 15, 2013
Today’s office design utilizes more day lighting, less walls, and more collaborative work environments, opening up large areas of the workplace and putting more emphasis on the floor plane. Collaboration is the key element in this new design as traditional L-shape workstations are being replaced with straight counters, a style known as benching. Benching has opened the floor plane; and new, more sophisticated floor styles are being specified. Another important factor in a healthier work place is lighting. More offices are converting drywall to glass for a more transparent environment with the use of day lighting. This transparency puts more emphasis on the floor plane, again requiring a refined, yet contemporary floor design.
This change in the workspace environment led Tandus to innovate a new design technology called Sero®. Tandus’ break-through Sero design applied to hybrid resilient flooring (Powerbond®) and modular carpet was made to create stunning vistas in the collaborative officescape. Two unique floorcoverings working in tandem in fresh, new innovative design options through the layering of texture and color to create patterns that break the boundaries of the square.
