Cartersville, Ga.—Patcraft, a leader in high-performance commercial flooring, introduced its latest resilient collection, Create In Place. Available in 9 x 36 planks and 10 colorways, the three unique styles can be used to promote wayfinding— guiding transition and movement throughout the built environment, according to the company.
For the Create In Place patterns, Patcraft product designer Amanda Hopkins set out to design a hard surface collection that was directly connected to original artwork. Hopkins said she used different brush strokes, sizes and shapes to create each design, incorporating both hand-crafted and natural influences.
“After choosing the artwork that would serve as the base pattern for each style, we turned to the colorline as the next step in the product development process,” Hopkins said. “We were intentional in selecting dynamic shades for impact and creative spaces—connecting the patterns through color.”
Within the collection, Iterate is an aggregate-inspired pattern with a terrazzo-like visual that was created by hand-painted watercolors. Reach is a linear pattern created with a block-and-string printing method and Energize was developed by layering block printed artwork.
Create In Place features a 20-mil wear layer for superior durability. The 5mm product construction also allows for installation alongside carpet without the need for transition, according to the company, and an ExoGuard+ finish provides enhanced scratch and stain resistance. Create In Place is fully produced in the USA.
