Collaborative Collection by Tarkett


    Perfect for spaces with people returning to shared workspaces, the Collaborative Collection celebrates people coming together to build and create. Born from a communal mark-making process with the Tarkett design team, this portfolio offers an impressive mix of abstract flooring patterns to create artistic and inclusive spaces that encourage teamwork, embrace different work styles and inspire creativity.

    The LVT collection is made with exceptional 32-mil wear layer Contour® construction. Choose from 32 coordinating color options across five textural patterns and two tile sizes (18” x 18” and 12” x 36”):
    • Create Clarity, beautiful, handcrafted layering of transparent brushstrokes (5 colors)
    • Create Emphasis, featuring grounding neutrals to create moments of mindfulness (9 colors)
    • Create Expression, an artisanal interpretation of terrazzo and mosaic, featuring bold shapes and subtle color variations (4 colors)
    • Create Meaning, featuring lower contrasts of color to blend throughout the design (7 colors)
    • Create Together, inspired by the play between layers of brushstrokes (7 colors)

    All LVT options come protected by Techtonic® Technology for best-in-class scratch, scuff and abrasion resistance. For top-of-the-line durability, Contour includes a 32-mil wear layer that resists indentations in high-traffic areas, a core layer that provides perfect balance of function and performance, a fiberglass layer for enhanced dimensional stability and a balancing layer to prevent curling and doming.

    Collaborative also includes several carpet styles developed through the same collaborative mark-making process. Six styles are offered in modular carpet tile, and three of them are also available in Powerbond® hybrid carpet.

    • Create Balance, featuring painterly movement to build restorative and reenergizing spaces (10 colors). Available in three tile sizes and Powerbond hybrid carpet.
    • Create Impact, featuring boldly cut lines and angles to add energy (12 colors). Available in three tile sizes.
