IQ SURFACE By TARKETT
Ecological vinyl wall/floor tiles
iQ surface was imagined by Tarkett to unlock creativity in design and architecture, and truly magnify the potential of one of its most iconic product families, the iQ homogeneous vinyl range.
For this range, Swedish design studio Note was invited to collaborate with Tarkett and develop colour stories with the ability to be combined cohesively according to hue, style or narrative. Each colourway of iQ Surface carries Tarkett’s trademark of durability, sustainability quality and ease of installation. A limitless landscape of expressive colour that empowers the designer as much as it does the end user.
