The designer collection Industrial Landscape by Tom Dixon was originally launched in 2016. Today, three years and several international interior projects later, BCFA Member Ege carpets and the renowned British designer behind the collection unveil a sharp update of the all-pervading London structures and materials.
London – an eternal source of inspiration to Tom Dixon Industrial Landscape mirrors the original London with all the raw, sometimes even rough, elements making up the city. Aged and patinated by the passage of time, through which the weather, people and industry have left their marks on the materials and thereby created a continuous development of new expressions. This is the essence of Industrial Landscape.

Introducing the new designs, Coal and Iron, the collection interprets two important industrial pillars. While Coal reflects the dark and mysterious substance that powered the Industrial Revolution, the Iron design imitates the gradual disintegration of the oxidized metal surface that generates a random hued patination.
Besides that, the collection consists of five other patterns: The Smoke design visualises the fumes from factories and workshops, while Wash is inspired by the white paste that temporarily covers shop windows during renovation. In Blur, the distorted city reflects in transient bits of water, while Tide shows the ever-changing sediments of the tidal River Thames. As the seventh and final design, Brick symbolises the London bricks visible all over the townscape.
“As the raw materials become scarce or morally unjustifiable to use, we can replace them with man-made imitations. Digital technologies push the limits for, what is real and what is not while making it possible to use materials or elements from the past in a sustainable and responsible manner.” – Tom Dixon.
Industrial Landscape results from the newest trends within architecture and interior design. While technology on one hand side brings us completely new and environmentally friendly materials it also facilitates a visual re-emergence of scarce resources and non-sustainable materials such as coal. Industrial Landscape comes as carpet tiles and broadloom. Mix and match the seven designs to create completely new expressions or combine with other collections from ege carpets for a unique flooring design.
The collection is, amongst others, available in ege carpets’ Highline 1100, Loop and Carré qualities that are made from regenerated and regenerable ECONYL® yarns. Produced from abandoned fishing nets and other industrial nylon waste these yarns can be reborn over and over again in a closed cycle. The tiles are fitted with ege carpets’ patented Ecotrust backing based on used water bottles that are turned into a strong and sound reducing felt material. The products are Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM and thus a completely green carpet choice.
