Tarkett, a sustainable flooring company, is giving design professionals a seamless way to search and sample hundreds of its products through a new partnership with Material Bank.

Material Bank is a free service for industry professionals in North America. Architects and designers are able to perform complex searches and explore new products across hundreds of brands and thousands of materials. Users can now request samples of hundreds of Tarkett’s soft surface and resilient flooring products and are able to filter materials by finish, design, color, performance, and technical attributes—all from a single source.

“The Tarkett executive team has been impressed with Material Bank’s service and attention to detail,” said Daina Olesen, chief marketing officer, Tarkett North America. “We know Material Bank brings much needed simplicity to the specification process, and we’re pleased to support designers through its quick, online search process and fast, eco-friendly delivery.”

Orders are fulfilled through Material Bank’s 80,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art, robotics-powered logistics facility, located just minutes from the FedEx Express World Hub in Memphis, Tennessee. Orders placed before midnight EST are delivered in a single box containing the full sample order by 10:30 a.m. the next day. By combining technology and logistics, Material Bank is the fastest and most powerful way for design professionals to search and sample materials on a single platform.

The partnership supports Tarkett’s commitment to sustainability by significantly reducing the impact of packaging and shipping samples. By combining multiple sample orders into a single delivery, Material Bank reduces inbound packages to design firms by 75%. Through its sample return program, Material Bank reclaims and reuses more architecture and design samples than any other company in the world.
