The collection is made up of two designs: ‘Crossing Lines’ and ‘Simple Lines’ inspired by the Mid-Century Modern movement (characterised by clean lines, angular structures, minimalistic aesthetics and simple forms). This influence is seen in the geometric shapes and asymmetrical compositions, and clean simple lines forming the contemporary patterns of Modern Movement. There is a criss-cross effect across the floor plane: a streamlined aesthetic, combined with luxurious and rich dimensional texture.

‘Crossing Lines’, designed by Milliken’s Kathryn Tyms, takes inspiration from the rules of Mid-Century Modern design, the resulting pattern is a high-end multi-layered graphic design mixed with a deep organic and luxurious texture. The partner design ‘Simple Lines’ designed by Helen Lloyd has a refined simplicity, continuous textured lines, muted tones and again a deep luxurious texture. The multi-tile design softly unfolds across the floor. The collection is patterned using Milliken’s unique patented Millitron® technology. There are also four vivid colour pops for each design offering the ability to create high-impact zones and highlighted areas. 

Modern Movement with Milliken’s premium Comfort Plus® cushion backing has particularly impressive acoustic properties, absorbing up to 60% more ambient sound than hardback carpet, reducing impact sound by up to 40% and increasing wellbeing and productivity. Unwanted noise in the workplace is a significant contributor to stress, fatigue, illness and absenteeism. Further, Modern Movement with Milliken’s premium Comfort Plus cushion backing reduces leg muscle fatigue by up to 24%, eliminates moisture mitigation and extends the longevity and appearance of the carpet. Modern Movement is available with TractionBack 2.0 – a sustainable backing that offers a practical and environmentally responsible installation system.

Modern Movement has the following certifications: Cradle to Cradle Silver, TUV, EPD, CRI certified. It is an M/PACT Carbon Neutral Collection with 60% recycled content by product weight.
