Philadelphia Commercial has introduced The Simple Mechanics Collection.
Inspired by the simple, yet effective, building blocks of simple machines, The Simple Mechanics Collection fills the style void left by commodity commercial carpeting products for small budget projects, said the company.
The Simple Mechanics Collection is available in 14 neutral colors to blend into any color palette and includes two 18-x 36-inch carpet tiles: Straight Shift and Shifting Gears. 
  • Straight Shift is an unstructured open weave pattern made of vertical and horizontal lines that come together to create subtle movement, offering designers a simple, textured visual that complements a variety of spaces.
  • Shifting Gears is Philadelphia Commercial’s interpretation of the uncomplicated inclined plane. Diagonal elements are balanced by irregular striping to create faceted shapes and angles like those used in modern architecture. 
According to the company, Simple Mechanics Collection is Cradle to Cradle Silver Certified and contributes to multiple LEED credits and is backed by our Environmental Guarantee.
“Designers want high style and high performance carpeting for even the most budget-restricted projects,” said Debbie Houston, Philadelphia Commercial’s R&D creative director. “The Simple Mechanics Collection is the direct result of our discussions with interior designers who want all of their projects to showcase their top-line style sensibilities while incorporating sustainability and resiliency. Just as simple machines like the wedge, the lever, the pulley and the screw were purposely designed for a specific need, the same approach applies to The Simple Mechanics Collection, our purpose-built flooring solution that combines form and function to fill the need for affordable high design.”
Philadelphia Commercial is taking orders for The Simple Mechanics Collection at NeoCon East for delivery in April 2016. Visit our website to find a sales representative near you.
