Every day, architects and designers work their magic to create beautiful functional spaces that inspire, inform and nurture productivity — often in the background of projects and often without the recognition they deserve. They are not alone.
Invisible Visionaries specifically applauds the tremendous talent of costume designers with Allegro and Interlude. While Allegro explores the juxtaposition of the delicate nature of what a dancer wears and the physicality of how that costume must perform, Interlude examines craft, and the constant pleating and pinning that happens with each fitting. Interlude displays repetitive patterns that become altered with each use.
“Costume designers are true artisans, yet their critical role in the success of any production is often overlooked and undervalued,” explains Ginger Gilbert, Vice President of Product Design and Development for Bentley. “Every costume must effortlessly fit — the scene, character, body type, director’s intent. It must capture vision, meet performance expectations, adapt to needs and align with styles. In fact, it’s not unlike commercial designers and carpet.”
Allegro and Interlude are offered in 12 classic colours. Designed to perform, the products are made with Antron Lumena Type 6,6 Solution-Dyed Nylon and feature the latest in tufting and colour technology. Allegro and Interlude are available in two carpet tile sizes along with a broadloom option, and backed by NexStep Cushion Tile, AFIRMA II Hardback Tile or High PerformancePC Broadloom backings.
Allegro and Interlude are Cradle to Cradle Certified, NSF 140 certified, CRI Green Label Plus certified and produced in a LEED-EB:OM Gold-certified manufacturing facility. Along with Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Health Product Declarations (HPDs), the products also feature the Declare label and have achieved LBC Compliant status through the Living Building Challenge.
