Colourful rugs brighten up industrial head office

Danish-based Ege Carpets, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers in design, development and the production of high-quality flooring products, recently carpeted the head office of the company, Indeed, a major employment agency in the Netherlands.

KBAC Flooring, with offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, is the exclusive supplier of Ege products in South Africa.

Indeed’s prestige 2 000m2 head office, based in Amsterdam’s historic harbour district, has a very industrial look and feel about it. To soften the space, and bring in a colourful design element, the Canvas Collage Collection by Ege was selected as a rug installation.

The Canvas Collage rugs were fitted on existing LVT flooring in Indeed’s open-space reception area, the company’s canteen, as well as the lounge areas used for informal meetings and relaxation. The rugs are particularly impressive in the sprawling reception area with its large mural depicting people working in Amsterdam which ties in beautifully with the ethos and culture of Indeed.

This beautiful Ege collection was developed by Dutch designer, Nicolette Brunklaus, who refreshed and revitalised the popular range by adding new patterns and tones as well as layering these patterns and colours. The collection is available in five designs, namely Octo, Linen, Rewoven, Faded Dahlia and Twine. The vibrant Faded Dahlia with its abstract floral look, was selected to adorn the Indeed offices. The rugs’ powerful colour splashes make an interesting contrast to the colours of the office interior, which are comprised of classic shades of white, grey and black. The Canvas Collage collection is produced in seven different carpet qualities and is available as broadloom carpet, runners and rugs.

The large variety of options available within the Ege range is one of their many unique selling points. The carpeting in the Indeed rug application worked particularly well as Ege area rugs can be as large as 4m wide and 25 m long, if so desired.

Ege is focused on not only producing top quality, high design products but also on ensuring that their manufacturing process is as sustainable as possible. This is demonstrated in the impressive 18 Cradle-to-Cradle certifications that Ege has been awarded.
