Mannington Commercial introduces The Hocus collection

Home News Mannington Commercial introduces The Hocus collection

Calhoun, Ga.—Mannington Commercial has launched The Hocus collection, containing three modular carpet styles designed in collaboration with minimalist artist, Larry Bell. Bringing forth Bell’s 60-year career of exploring the interaction of light and surfaces, the collection is rich with color and dimension.

Bell’s Standing Walls series provided the inspiration for The Hocus. The art series features large installations of glass panels revealing complex shapes of transparency, reflectivity and color that change as the observer walks through or around them.

“When you have the opportunity to walk around his work, as our Mannington Commercial Design Studio team did, you immediately notice the play of depth, which makes you feel like a part of the piece,” said Roby Isaac, Mannington Commercial’s vice president of design. “That immersive experience is what we were trying to create with The Hocus.”

The Hocus collection’s three modular carpet styles—The Observer, The Marquette and Transference—are all available in 24 x 24-inch and 18 x 36-inch formats. The Observer uses layered color values to create the impression of angular shapes seen from different vantage points. The Maquette emphasizes right angles and straight lines to translate the areas of opacity and transparency as seen in Bell’s glass sculptures. Transference’s smaller-scale, textural pattern incorporates line work to mirror the depth in cubes, a key shape in Bell’s art.

The Hocus’ color palette ties into the colors Bell explores in his glass sculptures. Each colorway features neutrals alongside soft shades of subdued color.

Originally previewed during NeoCon 2019, the carpet collection features a special treatment of high-luster yarn unique to Mannington Commercial, which creates the effect of light within the patterns. The mix of luster levels reveals a sense of reflectivity and sheen bringing the colors to life and enhancing the sense of dimension.
