Bluebird Head Office
A comprehensive refit of the Bluebird head office in Auckland features Mossburn carpet tiles and CoralTread entry matting to create a stylish new interior.
A sophisticated, brand-inspired colour palette of blues and golds is backdropped by a lovely dark grey Mossburn carpet tile throughout the office and meeting room spaces. The natural ‘moss’ graphic of two-tone yarns is joined by the warmth of feature timber battens.
When selecting a carpet for the office area, the design team knew that Mossburn would provide comfort, soften the acoustics, and handle high wear to retain its looks over time.
Mossburn is part of Advance Flooring’s commercial carpet tile range. Made with 100% solution-dyed nylon, its durable, multi-level loop and tufted construction combines elegance with durability. It is available in five shades of grey: neutral tones that complement any interior, using pattern and texture to add subtle character and background. Mossburn can be express-delivered nationwide.
At the main entry to the building, the designers specified CoralTread aluminium entrance matting, choosing colour granite to blend with the interior flooring. The flush, low-profile finish provides a safe, non-slip entry transition. And the high-performance mat means superior trapping of dirt to keep spaces clean and reduce wear and tear on internal flooring surfaces.
‘We like CoralTread,’ notes the designer. ‘It holds its form, and doesn’t dip over time to get those trenches that you do in some monolithic products. We’ve found it always performs.’
The Global Green Tag Certified CoralTread is a stylish, low-profile architectural entrance matting system with no joiners or t-bars, ensuring a safe and non-trip surface. The sleek design has Econyl inserts, is highly moisture-absorbent and traps dirt on specially designed aluminium corrugated rails. Read CoralTread specifications.
