Tandus captures two gold awards at IIDEX/NeoCon Canada

Home News Tandus captures two gold awards at IIDEX/NeoCon Canada

Tandus Flooring’s NeedleTech Collection and DV8 turned heads during their debuts at NeoCon 2012 and the attention hasn’t stopped there. The NeedleTech Collection, Best of NeoCon winner Gold in broadloom, received another Gold award in the respective category at this year’s IIDEX and was the only winner in the category. DV8, a striking style, captured the heart of the judges with an IIDEX Gold award in the extremely competitive modular category.  

The NeedleTech Collection responds to our nostalgia for handmade craftsmanship with its textural, hand-stitched look of familiar, comfortable crochet and needlepoint. High and low luster DynexTM nylons create color definition, giving the appearance of a cut/uncut surface.  Four patterns in 12 colors provide a luxurious cut pile look and silky luster that will perform even in high-traffic environments.

“NeedleTech delivers a truly innovative broadloom surface texture by borrowing a precise, pin-point yarn processing technique directly from our weaving mill,” said Terry Mowers, Chief Creative Officer, Tandus Flooring. “The interaction of both matte and bright lusters counterbalances the craft-like construction, projecting a contemporary visual.”

Moving to the modular category, DV8 is a unique style that accentuates and exposes the needle shifting of tufting machines rather than seeking to hide it. Linear striations are punctuated with flame-stitch and argyle zig-zags that celebrate Tandus Flooring’s state-of-the-art tufting technology while adding a graphic element of surprise.  Created using Tandus Flooring’s revolutionary Sero design technology, DV8 produces free-flowing imagery with fluid transition of pattern and color, allowing colors to shift, flow and pool across the entire floor plane.

“Utilizing the non-repeating, full six-foot width of our hybrid resilient sheet flooring platform as a design medium, results in a one-of-a-kind modular install on every project,” added Mowers. “Available in 24” squares and 18”x36” rectangles, DV8 gives designers a tech-y brashness that’s grounded in fashion-forward elegance.”

Tandus Flooring products always steal the show and rightfully so, but it’s also nice to have our innovative design schemes of our showrooms and exhibition spaces recognized as well. The Tandus Flooring space at the IIDEX show received a Silver award in the 101-400 square-feet category.

“Innovation and design are the lenses through which we view everything…these are particularly evident in our products and delivery platforms,” said Tom Ellis, Vice President of Marketing, Tandus Flooring. “We aspire to inspire through innovative processes whether they result in beautiful flooring or storytelling graphics in our showrooms; innovation is who we are and we are humbled to be recognized for both our products and our exhibition space.”
