Watercolour Inspired Fluid&

fluid& carpet design

Fluid&, the newest addition to the coordinated &collection, is a mind-blowing carpet tile range that brings a bold splash of colour, elevating the look of commercial spaces in many ways.

___ 01 fluid& inspiration

perfectly imperfect.

Fluid& is inspired by the organic, free-flowing aesthetic of adding paint to water. It reflects natural fluidity and rejects any need for flawless precision. In fact, it embraces the opposite: Fluid& is perfectly imperfect in its approach to pattern.


___ 02 fluid& colour

luscious colours.

The colour palette of Fluid& includes luscious tones of ochre, grey, blues, rust and greys. Harmonising beautifully with all products in the &collection; the colour, pattern, and textures of Fluid& can be used alongside the subtle linear texture of Fashion& or the vintage velvet look of Velvet& for a tone on tone effect.

Utilising in-house, high-resolution print technology onto engineered polyamide yarn, the striking print of fluid& is a premium example of modulyss’ design identity and the technological synergies of the manufacturer.
