Flooring provider Tarkett is giving designers a canvas for unfettered creative expression with the new Marieke Collection. The collection is the first to use Tarkett’s new digital dye injection (DDI) technology.
Playing with mediums like paint pouring, Sumi ink, and digital art, Tarkett’s design team created this unique twist on the abstract. The diverse collection of visuals invites the rebellious designer to break the rules and reform them to her purpose.
“The Marieke Collection evolved from art created by our design manager, Ann Matthews, using paint and ink as her medium. Her canvases hung in our studio for months as a source of inspiration,” says Amy Jaekel, creative director of Tarkett Hospitality in North America. “The layers and blending of colors, along with the detail of the bubbles and cracks, made these works of art perfect to show off the new DDI technology.”
With 10 DDI patterns and three tufted patterns, Marieke is available in 13 styles that evoke organic textures and shapes, from bold marbles to soft floral designs.

Digital dye injection — the floor as canvas
The Marieke Collection was made possible through Tarkett’s new digital dye injection technology, which removes all creative limitations for expressive hospitality flooring design. Tarkett’s DDI technology enables designers to cocreate unique flooring designs with crisp pattern details. Through the company’s cocreation process, designers can adjust an existing pattern, or design a fully custom experience from scratch. Digital Dye Injection allows up to 14 colors on any of the company’s four base grade textures.
Each digital dye injection carpet includes Tarkett’s ActionBac construction and 10% preconsumer recycled content, helping it stand up to high traffic while protecting the planet’s valuable resources. The technology also can be used to create custom area rugs.
