Custom-made carpet for GENARIS GROUP new headquarters

2021, January

Written by Lou Ancelin
The last quarter of 2020 saw the inauguration of GENARIS Group new headquarters in Guyancourt (Yvelines), an imposing modern 4400 m² building which houses a dozen SMEs and start-ups that are committed to technological innovation in a wide range of sectors, from aeronautics to biomedical, luxury and security.


"Turning a technical project into a human project"
This is the motto of This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., our partner on this project, who is part of the cooperative design studio EMA in Toulouse, which specializes in workplaces design and layout. He is also a member of the
Comité Open Innovation Toulouse.

Very attentive to its customers, EMA led the project in close collaboration with the management and the members of GENARIS technology cluster, called BUBBLE ONE. They require that their workspace meets four criteria: inspiring, technological, co-creative and collaborative, in order to be an "innovation ecosystem" (sic).

With this in mind, the layout of the premises offers various functional spaces: large coworking areas, individual and collective workstations, modular meeting rooms, more intimate nooks allowing privacy... All dotted with connected objects, of course.

The floor layout has been designed in a completely original way, in order to create cohesion between the different spaces. 1910 m² of office space has been covered with TecSOM modular carpet in different colours.

Regarding to texture, the choice of the model fell on TecSOM LINEAR SPIRIT multi-loop pile tuft collection, which offers high technical performance in terms of acoustic comfort, resilience and ease of maintenance.

For the colours, only two of the six ones which were planned by our customer, were referenced in our product catalog, in this case two shades of grey. Our R&D teams had the pleasure of developing three special solid color references and a beautiful multicoloured linear one, especially for this project.

The layout shows juxtapositions and inlays of different colors, linear or curved, simple to realize with TecSOM Backing System which allows all kinds of cuts.
