Note Design Studio champions closed-loop sustainability with Formations installation

Stockholm-based Note Design Studio worked with the brand to design the colours and patterns of the material, and then designed the Milan installation to show some of the many ways it can be used. The result is a room filled with 24 towering columns, featuring colourful speckled surfaces and topped with an assortment of 3D shapes.

Note Design Studio has installed geometric totem poles inside a historic Milanese building to showcase the potential of Tarkett’s IQ Surface, a new material that can be continuously recycled. Located in Circolo Filologico for the duration of Milan design week, Formations is an exhibition of the latest product from vinyl flooring manufacturer Tarkett. IQ Surface is a durable material that can cover angular and curved forms. It is produced using recycled materials, and can be recycled by Tarkett when it is no longer in use. Formations is on show at Circolo Filologico until 14 April, as part of Milan design week. It is furnished with products by Magis.
