Informed, networked, empowered, and active consumers are increasingly co-creating value.
Inspired by collaborative design, our Co-Creation services include our customers in the creative process to shape customized, flexible and modular flooring experiences. We believe interacting with our customers creates value.

Floorcraft Design Service, a dedicated design
Our Floorcraft Design Service offers our customers the possibility to create customized floorings in collaboration with our design teams. With our Floorcraft Design Service, our customers can engage in a co-creation process to bring their projects to life with unique and customized designs.
Once the look has been finalised, the design is digitalised and sent to our sonic cutting service. Our designs are pre-assembled, and therefore don’t require any specific installation skills.
Here are the steps in our Floorcraft Design Service creative process:
Design: You can either provide a company logo, graphic or pattern or choose a pre-existing design from our catalogue. We also provide custom support with a dedicated design team to create original designs. We can also support you in choosing the best flooring material for your project.
Layout: Using computer software, our design team develops an installation plan to help visualise the final layout as well as develop cutting instructions
Cutting: Our sonic cutting machines precision cut the planned design from your selected flooring material
Preassembly: Our team pre-assembles the pieces into easy-to-install panels. Clear adhesive tape is placed on the surface to hold the pieces together during installation, which will then be removed once the flooring adhesive has set
Installation: Your new custom-designed floor is ready to be installed.
Atelier Tarkett, a space for Co-Creation

Engage in co-creative practices by holding meets or consulting experts
Fast-track their projects by exploring the materials’ possibilities and the creative potential of the brand’s solutions and flooring products.
Co-Founder and Creative Director Jean-Sébastien Blanc explains:
“Our idea was to design a place that would feel like the extension to an architecture studio, a place where architects would be comfortable, where they would enjoy working, where they would want to come back and spend time. And not just to look for samples, but to find inspiration and boost their creativity as well”.
