Interior designer Gunnar Seel regularly attends DOMOTEX as a source of inspiration for his work. Together with his Seel Bobsin Partner team in Hamburg, he has created a multi-space office for the Hannover-based tour operator TUI, making use of functionally appropriate, sustainably produced carpet tiles from Carpet Concept. The tiles have a basic graphic pattern characterized by a color gradient in special hues. Their large-scale format makes the otherwise "busy"-looking pattern almost invisible, resulting in a more subtle appearance. The white tiles were individually printed with graphic patterns in sand and blue tones. This color combination is evocative of beachscapes – a theme also echoed by the furniture.

The project team used three tile variants, the respective color schemes of which serve to differentiate between meeting rooms, corridors and workplaces. For better room acoustics, the tiles have a sound-absorbing bottom coating.
