Azrock By Tarkett Announces ColorWorks, A Color Story
Created With Flexibility In Mind

Tarkett is pleased to announce the launch of Azrock’s new ColorWorks® system, coordinated color schemes developed to provide designers and architects even more flexibility in creating flooring designs. ColorWorks ensures that all Azrock by Tarkett products including Milano, Cortina Grande and the brand's newest product, SolidAir, offer complementary colors and patterns so that products can be mixed and matched for optimal design options.

“We understand that selecting a flooring option can be somewhat challenging depending upon the environment and specific needs,” said Amanda Host, design manager for Tarkett Commercial. “ColorWorks is Tarkett’s color solution to offering flexibility in design while providing a durable, high-quality product.” 

ColorWorks’ color story is comprised of four environments including natural, urban, contemporary, and cosmopolitan. While each palette evokes a different emotion and response, together they maintain a connection through complementary color combinations. 

Natural – A soothing selection of values founded on warm casts of nature. The colors are a basis for the other three environments, mixing well with more intense colors or standing alone to create a balanced harmony and Zen state. The hues prompt a mind and body renewal with their comforting, peaceful and tranquil affects, while simultaneously providing an upscale and classic look.
Urban – A cool chroma palette in grays and blacks that is modern, sleek and sophisticated. The urban palette reflects a timeless, classic elegance with a twist that creates 

a new look of eclectic traditions. The look is professional, clean and clear. It is a simple, sophisticated and minimized style.

Contemporary – This palette reflects the importance of "green" design and demonstrates how colors can work together to create a chic, up-to-date feel. The contemporary palette brings a natural and relaxed feel indoors, reflecting the importance of the environment and nature. The mix of bright with dull creates a juxtaposition of design that is prevalent in today's society and brings a splash of color to any design.

Cosmopolitan – Colors from across the globe come together to form a vibrant, clean look that creates a warm, rich palette. All of the colors work well together, whether used in contrasting or monochromatic schemes. When combined, this palette creates a rich, decadent yet global ambience.
ColorWorks homogeneous commercial tile is a compilation of Milano, Cortina Grande and SolidAir, all of which are available in 16” x 16” tiles with a 1/8” gauge. 

The ColorWorks story originated last spring with the introduction of Tarkett's new linoleum line. ColorWorks will broaden as new product introductions are developed and launched. For more information, visit www.tarkett.com or call 1-800-366-2689.
