New Desert AirMaster® offers the best of both worlds: organic beauty and improved indoor air quality

Desso, a leading brand in high-end and innovative carpet flooring, is extending its most distinctive carpet tile collection, DESSO AirMaster®, with the launch of Desert AirMaster®. Bringing together the subtly layered organic designs of the Desert range and all the health and wellbeing benefits of AirMaster® with EcoBase™ backing, Desert AirMaster® creates free-flowing patterns for dynamic flooring while creating an improved indoor air quality.

Inspired by nature, Desert AirMaster® has a diffused pattern to give a marbled effect to the floor.

Thanks to the random pattern and the use of two colours, every carpet tile is different – providing endless design opportunities.  Offering a broad range of neutral colours, including three grey shades, a beige, brown and blue tone, Desert AirMaster® can be used to achieve a soft and calming environment.

When you consider we spend around 90% of our time indoors, it is critical that the inside air is as clean as possible. Tests already demonstrated that DESSO AirMaster® is 8 times more effective in capturing and retaining fine dust than smooth flooring solutions (PM10) and 4 times more effective than standard carpet solutions (PM10).

“Not only is poor indoor air quality a threat to people’s health and wellbeing, but it can also have a negative impact on workplace productivity and attendance levels. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls indoor air quality one of the top five environmental health risks of our time” says Roland Jonkhoff, Managing Director at Desso and Vice President, Carpet (EMEA) at Tarkett. “Improving indoor air quality, therefore, can have an immediate, positive and tangible impact on sickness absenteeism and lead to a boost in productivity.”
