Artcore is inspired by the transitions that modulyss designer Joris Peutz noticed in nature – the space between two states, where a material or an environment changes from one thing to another. The way a forest turns into a meadow. The way the city gives way to the country. The boundary where tree bark becomes covered in moss. “During the pandemic, I felt the world was going through a transition like never before,” says Peutz. “I began to find similar transitions in the outside world: transitions between nature and man-made, transition in nature itself. Patterns that quiet the mind and are able to create a sort of sanctuary through their unique shape or dimensions.”
Inspired by these natural transitions and the principles of biophilic design, Peutz created four patterns to play with, to create an entirely unique, completely bespoke floor design.
“The intention is to harness the power of the natural world to inspire, uplift and nourish the heart and mind,” continues Peutz, “while reflecting the beauty of nature’s own smooth and purposeful transitions.”
