Bharat Flooring, in collaboration with ArtXFound, has recently launched a new collection of flooring called Vitruoso range. It is a designer collaboration where the tiles are designed by various Graphic Designers and Illustrators.
1. Contemporary Terrazzo by graphic designer Anirudh Mehta
The classic Terrazzo tile is very reminiscent of Indian homes and often associated with
the nostalgia of an old ‘Bombay’. The reimagining of this tile in a modern and contemporary approach is an aim to reintroduce the terrazzo back into spaces, outside of homes and more in tune with contemporary interior design and architecture – be it co-working spaces or restaurants. The idea is to take the dispersed layout of the Terrazzo tile and apply a systematic yet playful, minimal and blocky order to its arrangement. The tile comes in a ‘Morning’ and ‘Evening’ theme, suitable for a low-lit room or one which basks in the sunlight.
2. Brush Stroke by an illustrator and graphic designer Suzanne Dias
Brush Stroke 1 tile design is representative of the artist’s love for art, texture and pattern. This design was inspired by the crudeness and freedom of brush strokes in abstract art and pencil hatching on paper. It can bring an element of creativity and a laidback, organic aesthetic into every home.
3. Petals by an illustrator and graphic designer Suzanne Dias
Petal design is inspired by elements of nature and reminiscent of fallen autumn
leaves or the arrangement of petals in the flower. “Petals” serves as an intricate yet subtle pattern, that brings the beauty of the outdoors, indoors.
4 & 5. Journey of Strokes – by illustrator Pratap Chalke.
The artist has explored the journey of strokes with their flow to create these designs. They are an output of his practice of brush strokes with which he has created interesting visuals by strategically composing them. Despite having a simple language he has kept his compositions interesting. In the first design, the pattern consists of abstract strokes and the second design he has turned those strokes into a portrait.
Masks is Pratap Chalke’s exploration of symmetric strokes into a portrait.

6. Seascapes by graphic designer Shweta Malhotra
Seascapes is inspired by the artist’s frequent travels to the beach destinations across the world. The collection casts a distinctly geometric and minimalist eye on the scenic elements that make a seascape – the sun, the waves, palm trees and the mountains in the distant horizon. The patterns formed are distinctly asymmetrical and can be arranged in any combination, perfectly capturing the sunny, easy-going nature of life on the beach.
