Alternative 100

Style, class, charisma… creating the right setting can do wonders. Take hotel and office spaces to a higher level.

Alternative 100

Next to beautiful, daring colours – a perfect match with the Cambridge collection – the structure of Alternative 100 adds a fancy flair to each floor. This ecological loop pile tip sheared carpet tile – known for its stylish look – is made from ECONYL® -100% recycled nylon yarn. 


Modulyss’ journey has resulted in a partnership with the “Healthy Seas” project – to play a part in helping clean up the rubbish in the oceans by “turning fishing nets into carpet tiles”.  This has meant the creation of beautiful ranges like Alternative-100 through their ECO collections, using recycled Econyl yarn.


Alternative 100 is GECA certified for Green Star projects. Suitable for heavy project flooring use.
