Spirit Moderne is a captivating and sustainable soft surface flooring portfolio for hospitality interiors inspired by Durkan’s collaboration with the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, N.M. Alluring ethnographic textiles from the world over breathe inspiration into new motifs and bring historical source material into the context of the modern era. The rich history behind textured garments spanning ceremonial to everyday use is revived and infused with a contemporary aesthetic for a hospitality audience.
Durkan designers considered both the patterning and cultural tradition from which these textiles originated to conceive a new design language infused with the soul of its creators. The museum’s 30,000-piece textile and dress collection provided a wealth of inspiration incorporating unique resources from 100 countries across six continents. The collection’s influence is representative of both the culture’s and the artist’s soul, and now of the carpet designers, while still referencing the integrity of the original materials. The design team honored the original motifs by creating an amalgam of new patterning instead of simply replicating them.
Spirit Moderne is featured in Definity, Durkan’s exclusive manufacturing technology which surpasses traditional luxury carpet by offering multi-level textures, more than twice the definition, superior performance and unmatched sustainability. The collection is also offered in Durkan’s Synthesis, Pattern Perfect, PDI carpet tile and tufted broadloom. Portions of the proceeds from the collection support the Museum of International Folk Art in its mission to preserve and promote the artistic and craft traditions of the world’s artisans.
From the hotel lobby and corridors to guest rooms and ballrooms, casinos and areas of assisted living facilities, Durkan is world-renowned as an industry leader in innovative design solutions and high-style, high-performance hospitality flooring solutions. Durkan’s products are offered in a wide range of exclusive innovative pattern and texture technologies, including Definity™, an advanced generation precision sculpturing technology that produces the highest definition of texture, pattern and color available in hospitality carpet; and Synthesis™, which provides a three-dimensional layering effect using a custom base and Precision Dye Injected (PDI) surface that enables unprecedented image quality.
