Triangulation Underfoot: Isos Collection by Milliken Carpet
The Isos Collection by Milliken Carpet takes its name from the Greek word Isos, meaning equal, which is also the root word for isosceles. A celebration of the triangle, the Isos Collection is precise, linear, and modern: “This modular tile collection is a Bauhaus-like celebration; reducing form to its most simplistic and pure expression—a diagonal line bisecting a square.” Designed by Cresta Bledsoe, the Isos Collection includes three patterns: Diagonios, Finite, and Myriad.
Diagonios. Designed by Cresta Bledsoe. Manufactured by Milliken.
Graphic Modular Wool Carpet
Crafted of rich, dense 40 oz. 100% wool, the Isos Collection features wool loop and tip shear construction. This durable, renewable, flame-retardant material is natural, which is important to Milliken because “finding ways to achieve higher performance from natural materials enriches our lives and our surroundings.”
All of the patterns in the Isos Collection pay tribute to the classic triangle of the design and the square shape of the modular tile with “angle to angle boldness and simple, color-block graphics.” Diagonios splits a square into two equal triangles, focusing on the dynamism of the diagonal. Finite further cuts the shapes by splitting one of the equilateral triangles in half, creating three triangles inset in the square. The most complex pattern, Myriad, is composed of a diagonal shape made of eight triangles floating within a larger square of four triangles.
Tonal colors highlight the shapes. Available in neutrals like Espresso, Camel, and Charcoal, or in neutrals with highlights of Periwinkle, Citron, Butter, Amber, or Aqua, the subtle colorways enhance the boldness of this modern collection.
