The carpet tiles can be ordered in four carpet qualities; a low pile polyamide, a soft yarn polyamide, a structura and a flatweave. Some of these materials are already known and used extensively within the Moooi collections. The introduction of the structura and flatweave provide a new, durable loop pile product, suitable for high traffic areas in the contract market.

Carpet tiles offer a number of practical benefits compared to broadloom. The tiles are easier to install and transport, as the laser-cut tiles are supplied in compact boxes, with each box containing tiles for approximately five square metres of cover. The tiles are also easy to maintain and replace because of the compact tile size. With increased durability, there is also less waste than broadloom at time of installation. The end result is a practical and efficient surface that is permanently antistatic, while being excellent for noise reduction.

the carpet tiles can provide a more sustainable solution being durable and hardwearing, and therefore reducing the need for constant replacements. If neccesary, single tiles can be replaced in certain areas, making a more efficient solution which is better for the environment. The tiles are laser cut directly from broadloom carpet rolls minimizing waste and thus reducing the impact on the environment. All Moooi Carpets Tiles are made in Europe using 100 per cent CO2-neutral wind energy, and contain no bitumen, PVC, Latex or other environmentally hazardous substances. Where possible some of the designs are backed with a material made of 100 percent recycled PET material.
