Re-vive Tiles

RENS x TARKETT

A new lease of life for Tarkett’s carpet tiles.

With the colourful Re-vive treatment, obsolete collections of

this functional and highly flexible product now come in

myriad shades and gradients too. Adding a dash of

colour to every office or home interior.

By using a manual dyeing process on the obsolete collections, the carpet-tiles are re-coloured with red dye. The colour red makes a bold statement signaling to people that textile materials should not be wasted.

 

The interacting yarns and red dye produce new and unique colour shades every time. Every quality and colour of the original carpet-tile fits perfectly together now because they're united by the colour red. Upon request, the concept can be applied in the design of offices, shops and homes.

 

For the love of Red

RENS has been and continues to be enamored by the allure of colour. In the early 2000s, the designers embarked on a series of experiments, daringly applying exclusively red pigments to a diverse array of materials: textiles, wood, metals, plastics. 

Red has a beginning, but it seems to have no end: read about the shared history of red and RENS.

RENS X TARKETT

 

The collaboration with Tarkett – an alliance in design, colour, and material research – started in 2014 with the unveiling of Re-vive Rugs with carpet producer Desso, a division of Tarkett.

 

This partnership resulted in the introduction of a commercially appealing yet remarkably sustainable range of carpet tiles in 2021: Re-vive Tiles. Building on this success, the partnership was extended in 2023 with the introduction of linoleum adventure Lino Undercover.

 

‘The collaboration with RENS proofs working with enthusiastic designers can be highly valuable. Their independent approach to our challenges has yielded surprising results. Using out-of-date carpets to create new, fresh designs gives our artisan products new aesthetic power and tells a truly valuable story.’

— Bernd van der Stouw, Manager Design & Development, Desso (Tarkett)
