First Blocks

'A chip off the old block' with 51% recycled construction and ethically responsible backing.

First Blocks

A contemporary geometric design uses subtle shades and block patterns to cater for the modern work space and those who prefer something as visually stimulating as it is hardwearing and functional.  Use Blocks independently for a striking statement style or combine with some plain base colours from the First range for a more understated finish.  Because of its random pattern, this contemporary carpet tile collection offers infinite creative design opportunities alone or in combination with the base colors of the First collection.

 

First Blocks is available in 6 neutral colors: grey, blue, beige and brown and meets the stringent requirements of today’s offices.

 

First Blocks is GECA certified for Green Star projects.

Standard format for First Blocks is 50 x 50cm.

Other tile and plank formats including 100cm x 100cm, 100cm x 50cm, and 100cm x 25cm are available with minimum order of 250sqm.

Samples are available in quarter tile format. For any special requests contact sampling@gibbongroup.com.au
