Are you looking for an extremely durable carpet? And are you quite happy with a smaller number of standard colours to choose from? Then the Una concept can offer many of the benefits of the Epoca concept - at a lower price! Una is made of pre-coloured yarns, reducing both the price and the selection range. The Una concept will satisfy any design-critical eye with minimalist collections where innovative structure defines the appearance.
The Una collections can be divided into three main groups. The first group encompasses the flat-woven collections, where the structure and sense of fine craftsmanship define the design. Then there is a group with multidimensional structures with varying loop heights (an affordable alternative to the ReForm collections with their multilayer design). The third group consists of more traditional looped products whose tight, understated structure (enlivened, perhaps, with an elegant pinstripe) makes all the difference.
All of the Una collections are approved for offices, corridors and other high traffic areas. Office chair castors, heavy furniture and ceaseless foot traffic are welcome challenges for the Una concept collections, which respond to this endurance challenge by maintaining their appearence for many years.
Established as an affordable alternative to Epoca, Una carpets are based on pre-coloured yarns, meaning this concept has fewer standard colours to choose from. That is why classic and neutrals such as beiges, browns, greys and blacks feature so heavily in this concept’s collections, but some more seasonal shades can also be found in some of the collections. It is not possible to order custom colours for this concept.
Una consists of collections with both carpet tiles and wall-to-wall carpets. The extreme durability of the concept appeals to the office segment in particular, but their design is suitable for virtually any room with a minimalist, Scandinavian style. Your need to access cables in the underlying floor plays a large role in the choice between carpet tiles and wall-to-wall carpets. And, just as with Epoca, you can give the design an extra dimension by putting the tiles “in check”, that is, in a different pattern orientation.
The price range within the Una concept is based largely on the amount of yarn used and production process for each type. In a comparison between the concept’s collections, the flat weave collections are the most expensive. Even though yarn usage is not particularly high, the advanced weaving techniques result in a higher price. In the mid-range of the price scale you will find the multidimensional collections. The most affordable Una collections are the classic structures with closed loops.
