And there is a clear vision behind that. For Daniel Butz, a carpeted floor is much more than just a means of design. Yarns, pile, tiles, patterns and threads are part of his life tracing back to his childhood. Knowing the materials better than most anyone, he revolutionized the way people view flooring architecture with sustainable innovations. He took over the company from his father and has since paired modern technology with individual design to create unique and emotionally-touching products – in full accordance with strict ecological principles. Thus, the new collection FACTS & INSPIRATION keeps the spotlight on pairing environment and health with exciting creation options. The sustainable carpets 'Made in Germany' combine hip interior concepts and classic well-being in a healthy way.
"For OBJECT CARPET, ecological awareness has been rooted in the company’s DNA for more than 40 years. We take our environmental awareness and turn it into action. This results in sustainable materials, production and disposal," asserts Daniel Butz. A highlight is, for example, PLACES OF ORIGIN. The carpet is manufactured of 100% regenerated ECONYL® yarn from Aquafil. The supplier was awarded with the special prize for resource efficiency, the German Sustainability Award, uses material, which are processed from industrial waste and disused fishing nets that would otherwise end up in the waste landfills and pollute the seas. For every 10.000 tons of ECONYL® raw material, 70.000 barrels of crude oil are saved and 57.100 tonnes of CO2 eq. Emissions are avoided. As well as being a solution of waste, ECONYL ® regenerated nylon is also better when it comes to climate change. It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with the material from oil. The FREESTILE collection contains another innovation: The tiles are made from 100% recyclable PET fibre material.
