Designed by Huntsman Architectural Group, Tarkett will launch a 10,000-sq.-ft. co-creation workspace. The modular Atelier will be functional and encourage the design community to visit and use the space for hosting events and presentations.
Huntsman was tasked with creating a space to highlight Tarkett’s focus on design collaborations and the maker community, and also integrate a variety of customizable “zones” denoted by floor color and product, color temperature tunable lighting fixtures, textural drapery and access to natural light. The resulting design is a timeless space that offers unique moments and lasting experiences, highlighted by a range of Tarkett products.
Upon exiting the elevator on the second floor, the tone, inspired by the energy of NYC, is exemplified by a large neon light that says “Let’s Dance” from Let There Be Neon. Visitors are encouraged to come into the space and enter any of the many areas that are given the names of dance moves.
Tarkett will celebrate the grand opening of its New York Atelier on October 30 with an invitation–only panel discussion called Circular by Design, curated by trend studio Edelkoort Inc. and featuring Jessica Schreiber of Fabscrap, Dhruv Raina of Tarkett and designers Suzanne Tick and Zero Waste Daniel, moderated by trend analyst Philip Fimmano of Edelkoort.
