Durkan’s new Spirit Moderne collection
Las Vegas— Durkan, the hospitality brand of Mohawk Group, debuted a showcase of new hospitality carpet and hard surface flooring solutions here at HD Expo 2019.
“Our presence at HD Expo this year is all about how superior product design, manufacturing technology, custom capabilities and sustainability make it a natural fit to create and collaborate with Durkan for every hospitality project,” said Elizabeth Bonner, creative design director for Durkan. “This is always a special opportunity for us to show how we leverage our expertise to bring a personalized world-class and single-source approach with tailored flooring solutions for any and every hospitality space.”
One of Durkan’s featured collections this year is the second installment of an award-winning collaboration with the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, N.M. In Spirit Moderne, ethnographic textiles from around the world breathe inspiration into new motifs and bring historical source material into the context of the modern era. The rich history behind textured garments — from ceremonial to everyday use — is revived and infused with a contemporary aesthetic. Spirit Moderne is featured in Definity, Durkan’s exclusive manufacturing technology, which is said to surpass traditional luxury carpet by offering multilevel textures, more than twice the definition, superior performance and unmatched sustainability. The collection is also offered in Durkan’s Synthesis, Pattern Perfect, PDI carpet tile and tufted broadloom. Portions of the proceeds from the collection support the Museum of International Folk Art in its mission to preserve and promote the artistic and craft traditions of the world’s artisans.
Durkan will also be highlighting Sakiori woven enhanced resilient tile, which combines the soft aesthetic of textiles with the durability of resilient hard surfaces for hospitality. In Durkan’s latest collaboration with Virginia Langley, Andanté draws inspiration from a Latin term of the same name meaning “to do with feeling.” Andanté is featured in Synthesis, Durkan’s carpet design technology that is said to provide unprecedented 3D image quality and clarity. Also being featured is Prizefighter, Durkan’s newest rigid core enhanced resilient tile that celebrates authentic wood visuals in a 7 x 48 plank format on a dimensionally stable and waterproof platform.
