Biophilic Design

Connect with Nature through Biophilic Design.

Biophilic design continues to be a hot trend that more and more designers are tapping into by using Ulster’s Design Portal.

With an increased focus on the environment, biophilic design seeks to combine the modern built environment with our fundamental need to connect with nature.

When Speed is of the Essence

With both new build and refurbishment projects facing tight time pressures, our Contract Stock collection provides a fast and efficient solution.

For those projects that don’t have the time to develop a bespoke design, the variety of choice available in our Contract Stock range offers a viable alternative. Better still, with comprehensive stocks already in place, you could be rolling out new carpet on your commercial project sooner than you think!

One of the reasons why Ulster can provide such a fast turnaround is because we control every aspect of our manufacturing process. From sourcing the highest quality wool and spinning and dyeing the yarn through to design and weaving, we manage every step of the process.

Our experience of working on hospitality projects across the world also means we understand the challenges that these projects face. Coupled with our focus on strong customer relationships, this knowledge has allowed us to tailor our carpets to meet the specific needs of projects such as hotels, restaurants, bars and B&Bs through to casinos and cruise ships.

Making it easier to find the essential information that you need, the new dedicated Contract Stock section on our website features clear detail on the suitability of each range for different applications.

This is matched by larger swatches, in-situ images and downloadable brochures and technical specifications to provide you with a comprehensive package of information.

natura | Infused by Nature

Natura, our new carpet collection for the hospitality sector, is grounded on a theme that accentuates how we are connected to the intricacy of nature.

As the world reconnects with nature, our designers took the time to pause and take in the beauty surrounding them. These moments of quiet reflection provided the inspiration behind this stunning new collection.

Designed to meet the exacting needs of the hospitality industry, Natura encompasses 7 new designs in 24 different colourways that are suitable for a range of applications, including public areas, guest rooms, restaurants and corridors, amongst others.

Our new designs magnify the beauty of nature by focusing on the intimate detail of the elements around us. The outcome is a carefully curated collection that finds a perfect balance between impactful aesthetics and subtle beauty.

The new designs are:

Alder The hushed hues of Alder radiate with the soft, meandering patterns found on the bark of a Birch tree. The four contemporary colourways – Yam, Ribe, Ornäs and Kelp – are tempered by a distressed aesthetic that creates an enchantingly subtle narrative.

Arcus Imitating the turbulent nature of clouds that form at the edge of a thunderstorm, Arcus evokes the expectant nature of weather. Available in three colourways – Lumen, Storm and Electric – this is a design that delivers a clear sense of drama.

Esker Available in four colourways – Sif, Thar, Rift and Azul – Esker takes its name from the long ridges deposited by meltwater from a retreating glacier. These flowing striations form an intimate pattern of serenity.

Moso Influenced by the patterns of Moso, a type of bamboo native to China and Taiwan, this impactful design is available in three colourways – Char, Lint and Tansu. The layered, patina effect accentuates the organic aesthetics of nature.

Nahla Reminiscent of the ripples left by rain droplets, Nahla means ‘first drink of water’. The Arabic and African origin of the word resonates within the three colourways – Unda, Bayou and Zale – to create a mesmerising creative statement.

 

Vita Reflecting the complexity of molecular structures, Vita is Latin ‘for the course of one’s life’. With three colourways – Alpha, Helix and Origin – the layered linear elements create three-dimensional depth for an emboldened design.

Zen The striking Zen designs encompass the new heights that can be reached when you are in a state of calm attentiveness. The four modern colourways, Inga, Moka, Yari and Mesa, elevate the transition of the textures to create a sense of energy.

As you can see, just like the natural world, there is also a balance to how we have combined these  new designs with the 24 colourways available. Earth’s strongest hues and hushed tones have been transformed into a contemporary colour palette and then intuitively paired with each new design to create maximum impact.
