The creative use of Tessera and Westbond carpet tiles from Forbo Flooring Systems has helped to transform 12,000 ft of empty office space in Dublin into a modern and invigorating working environment for the managed services and outsourcing company, I.T. Alliance Group.
The office space extends across two floors of a purpose built office building. One houses the new European headquarters for I.T. Alliance whilst the floor above is occupied by its subsidiary company, Auxilion.
Ranelagh-based design company Peacock Interiors was given the brief to deliver interior design schemes for both workspaces, based on a similar design concept to reflect their association, but employing different colourways to communicate their individual brand identities.
“Both of the companies’ logos incorporated circular designs,” said Peacock designer Jean Feeney, “and we thought that we could create an association between the two companies via the flooring. A lot of people tend to shy away from circular designs, however for us it was a great opportunity to meet our client’s brief and produce a unique and crisp design.
“Auxilion’s floor houses a youthful IT team so colours and finishes were fresh, with relaxed breakout areas for group discussions. The IT Alliance floor keeps a similar concept but the colour palette changes to suit the corporate brand.”
Designer Jean Feeney specified Tessera Teviot carpet tiles as the core floor coverings in the main office areas – charcoal for Auxilion and deep ocean for I.T. Alliance – and used luxurious Westbond Colour fusion bonded carpet tiles in contrasting corporate colourways to create a series of circular breakout areas.
Teviot loop pile tiles, manufactured from 100% Aquafil polyamide and boasting a high castor chair rating, are ideal for use in busy offices. With a minimum order quantity of just 1m2, Westbond Colour tiles offer creative specifiers the opportunity to differentiate with shade and texture and introduce highlights, accents and colour pops without generating unnecessary waste.
The floor coverings were installed by Dublin-based interior fit-out and refurbishment specialist, TQM.
The final results were well received by the client. Pamela Wisely, Project Manager at I.T. Alliance Group said: “With the striking bold colours and designs on the flooring produced by Forbo’s products, it has created an environment where our employees want to spend time and we are more than happy to welcome visitors around the impressive building.”
