Product • By SENTIMOSentimo Radiator Cover

Sentimo Radiator Cover

Our basis Sentimo Radiator Cover is specifically designed for optimal heat transmission. However in some situations it is preferred that the surface temperature is lower than normal. For example in a space where there are unattended children, a working space which is close to the radiator or a space where there is care for disabled people. For this problem we now have the solution, Sentimo Safety. This version isolates the front of the radiator cover and therefore keeps the surface temperature low. With an input of 85˚ it results in a surface temperature of 31˚. So there is no risk of burning. Because of the open bottom of the cover in combination with the grill above the radiator the heat convection stays functional. You are still able... More

Product • By Ege CarpetsCanvas Collage

Canvas Collage

Canvas Collage is inspired by reflections on industry, just before the industrial revolution, when daily life was simple. A tiny sample of worn linen, loosely woven and faded began Nicolette Brunklaus’ creative process of mapping textures, colours and memories. Her love of rich textile structures is obvious, and the linen sample represents a piece of industrial craft history. Today, industry and efficiency have replaced this laborious craft yet Nicolette Brunklaus utilises its nostalgia by digitising it and collaging the linen texture in various modern ways. The woven structure is applied to all variations of the Canvas Collage collection, layered over dried dahlia flowers, in a patchwork of colours and combined with new forms. Nicol... More

Hexagon tiles

Hexagon tiles, size 72,30 x 62,30 cm. A natural evolution of form, Hexagon is the next logical move for the design of carpet tile. Non-linear in composition, it’s a perfect reflection of our culture shifting toward more collaborative environments— impacting the way we work, walk, communicate, create and exist within our three dimensional space. This new shape reinforces the social aspect of a space as well as the physical and mental interaction that occurs within it. “Today, nothing is linear. As a society, we depend on more connection points than ever before, so why shouldn’t our workspace reflect this? Hexagon creates more connection points and removes the linear path. It will change the way people move through the space, to develo... More
