Balsan expertise

BALSAN, French creator of textile flooring, says it offers a full range of carpets and carpet tiles for every public and private setting. Drawing on its extensive experience, Balsan develops aesthetic and functional solutions for its major markets: office, hotel, home, as well as a variety of leisure, educational, religious and health establishments, and many more.

Balsan’s goals for contemporary space: ‘To inject creativity into your work spaces, hotels, and create a relaxing, inspiring atmosphere to encourage productive brainstorming sessions’.

The company’s textile flooring is said to tick all the right boxes, complete with new designs and unparalleled acoustic features.

Balsan says it reinvents interior design and inspires technicolour emotion. The French brand is always looking to reinvent itself and create the unexpected thanks to its ‘skilful use of materials and bold use of colour’. Over and above the visual, Balsan aims to design journeys for the senses.

The Multinational Assurance company requested a designer product to carpet its head office in Madrid, Spain. The Metropolitan Odéon design tile was chosen as a ‘perfect match’ for the performance specification requirements of the office, and the contrasting grey shades of the tile fulfilled the aesthetic qualities that were requested by the design brief.

Be they plain, patterned or even graphic models, Metropolitan draws its inspiration from constantly changing city landscapes, for what Balsan calls a new vision of office floor covering.

By playing on tone-on-tone materials and structures to create more depth, Metropolitan District reportedly gives offices more character. With its 3 designs, Odéon, Soho and Brooklyn, this textured tile is said to combine aesthetics and exceptional technical features.

Made with solution-dyed thread, the colours in Metropolitan District are reportedly resistant to UV rays and even the most aggressive cleaning products, making the range suitable for workspaces.

To best meet your issues concerning sound insulation, Balsan says it goes even further, offering the Metropolitan District collection with a Sonic Confort felt backing upon special order and under certain conditions (please contact). This Sonic Confort backing reportedly contains 80% recycled polyester (post-consumer recycling of food industry plastic bottles), making for high acoustic performance.

Metropolitan Grafik completes this range with 3 designs to be combined with each other: Park (custom), Track and Block (custom). This series draws its inspiration from urban culture by creating dynamic designs in line with contemporary international architecture. What Balsan calls a ‘profound transformation in the layout of living areas triggered the creation of these textile designs’ that use the contours and landmarks of the city (the alignment of parks, varying facades, etc.) to better preserve comfort and friendliness in high-density urban areas.

The Metropolitan Avenue product, a resolutely modern piece, is said to provide a touch of softness within the collection.

With a clearly-claimed urban style, Odéon is set in the same vein as other products within the Metropolitan range. This textile tile has a dual-colour concrete effect, with a slightly vintage style and therefore an ‘inimitable look’. With Odéon’s 9 available colours, you can decide which atmosphere you feel most comfortable with in your offices.

Odéon is part of the District concept and the Metropolitan range; it can thus be combined with products such as Avenue, Brooklyn and Soho. In response to the technical constraints that govern workspaces, Odéon is a reportedly high-resistance product that is easy to clean (100% solution-dyed polyamide). Odéon is also available with a Sonic Confort backing. This product is EPD-certified (Environmental Product Declaration).
