Mohawk Group’s Learn & Live Collection offers worry-free education solutions that feature innovative product constructions and enhancements to deliver the highest performing flooring products available.
The collection features a soft surface portfolio of broadloom and carpet tile inspired by a design study of complexity and order proven to increase collaboration and creativity, reduce negative behavior and encourage social interaction. Education designers, specifiers and end users can create unique installations where complexity and order ebbs and flows through the use of accent colors by leveraging carpet tile and broadloom styles together.
“As Mohawk’s focus on ‘Believe in Better,’ we believe it is possible to improve education through environment,” said David Dembowitz, senior vice president of sales, education and government. “That’s why we invest in developing products that make a difference—in the learning opportunities for students, in providing safe and sustainable environments.”
Learn & Live is manufactured using Mohawk’s new Duracolor Tricor fiber, which builds upon the trusted Duracolor promise by delivering unsurpassed stain resistance, colorfastness, durability, color clarity and enhanced soil performance. Inspired by nature at a cellular level, Swipe Right carpet tile features organic patterns designed to define areas for study and thought, while Side Stripe and Rise Up modular patterns stir creativity and engagement as well as offer opportunities for expanding school branding.
Interplay broadloom features versatile geometric patterns designed to create quiet learning spaces. It coordinates with Interplay Stripe and Mirada Stitchlock broadloom styles, which create pops of color with enhanced brand personalization capabilities to ignite stimulation. Mohawk’s Stitchlock technology ensures unprecedented durability and lasting appearance retention by creating woven-like performance in a unique tufted construction that eliminates edge ravel and zippering to extend the life of the carpeting.
“Learn & Live is a full-system portfolio that delivers the right combination of technology and design to address the most common flooring issues in demanding learning environments,” said Dembowitz. “But it also does so much more: it gives schools another tool to reach, involve and energize students.”
