Design Showcase: icapital Refurbishment, Johannesburg
For the refurbishment of the icapital offices in Waverley, Johannesburg, Turn Key Interiors specified the Roam plank carpet tile from Shaw Contract’s Rapid Select collection, which was launched in 2018.
icapital, a black empowered South African financial services and investment group founded in 1998, needed a complete revamp of its existing office space. Lee Blair of Turn Key Interiors explains that the intention was to imbue the space with a very modern look and feel, which involved a complete demolition and rebuild of all interior components.
Blair says, “We used Rapid Select ‘Roam’ because the combination of colours and plank form of carpeting allowed us to bring visual interest to the spaces with subtle patterning and neutral contemporary colours that work well with icapital’s corporate deep blue. Pentafloor’s product delivery and services were great – a smooth experience from start to finish.”
Manufactured for the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) region, Rapid Select is an on-trend, value-driven choice for commercial interior design, refurbishment and fit-out of commercial properties and offices. The ‘Roam’ tile offers soft organic movement that mimics a natural texture often found in nature; and the elongated plank tile format allows designers the flexibility to create unique floor layout designs.
Made in the UK and backed by the Shaw 10-year commercial warrantee, Rapid Select is available with Shaw Contract’s TaskWorx® backing. Maintaining Shaw Contract’s commitment to sustainability, Taskworx is Cradle to Cradle Certified™. It is suitable for high-traffic areas and withstands heavy wear without deterioration.
