MILLIKEN-ONTERA DESIGN TECHNOLOGIES

Providing Inspiration & Insight

We understand that our clients are continuously looking for new approaches to the floor plate and we are committed to providing design inspiration and insights to the project planning process.

 

Our product portfolio includes a vast array of design aesthetics and custom capabilities made possible by different patented carpet patterning technologies.

 

Our expansive, state of the art, in-house colour labs are unlike anything else in the floor covering industry. As a result, we continually focus on rethinking and advancing the techniques used to pattern and colour carpet.

MILLITRON DIGITAL COLOUR PLACEMENT

Unprecedented Manufacturing Technology

This high resolution digital printing technology was developed by our in-house R+D team and is proprietary to Milliken-Ontera.

Millitron enables complex pattern effects and colour combinations, not possible with any other carpet manufacturing technology. Innovative and fascinating designs are produced as pattern and colour converge with different carpet constructions.

BIOPHILIC DESIGN

Bringing the outside in, Millitron is uniquely capable of creating multi-layered, free-flowing organic patterns and smooth transition effects that dissolve, blend and fade, reminiscent of patterns seen in nature.

UNRESTRICTIVE PATTERNS

Designs can be large or small scale, expressive and unrestricted, flowing across the entire floor plate, precisely matched, with module to module pattern registration.

VAST & ENVOLVING COLOUR PALETTE

Patterns are produced with fine accuracy and clarity in a vast and constantly evolving colour palette. Colour possibilities range from bright and vivid to subtly diffused, tonal and tinted.

QUICK LEAD TIMES & SUSTAINABILITY

The agility of Millitron allows for fast set-up and relatively easy switching, without waste, between designs and colours. Milliken-Ontera Quick Ship program is one of the largest in Australia and New Zealand, offering fast delivery on 351 unique SKU's of inspirational options, allowing you to browse by colour and style. 

STANDARD DESIGN COLLECTIONS

Millitron technology allows us to offer an extensive range of patterns, colours, textures and construction types that will meet the design, sustainability and budget requirements of most projects. 

  • High performance loop pile constructions, engineered to meet a budget in a range of easy to specify, flexible and practical designs for projects where hitting a price point is critical. These include collections such as Laylines. 
  • Highly styled, complex constructions using advanced yarn combinations to create differentiated design effects for projects where creative expression is key. This includes in collections such as Naturally Drawn, Clerkenwell and Topography 2.0. 
  • Premium and luxurious constructions that combine sophisticated styling with plush texture and dimension to create high-end looks for prestigious spaces. This includes in collections such as Consequence 2.0, Arctic Survey, Dissident, Fractals and Poise.  
  • Recycled Content - we are committed to ensuring our carpets offer the most sustainable floor covering solution and most of our Millitron collections use yarns featuring 100% recyclable content fibre.
  • Innovative patterns in different carpet formats such as planks - where the designer has freedom to combine pattern and colour and experiment with different layout options. Colour Compositions, Fractals, Arctic Survey and Live Circuit plank collections allow clients to interact with the design elements to create different layouts and colour combinations to create their own unique floor composition.

CUSTOM DESIGN SERVICES

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

Clients can use the speed and flexibility of Millitron patterning to create an entirely new signature design or colour concept that is bespoke to their interior scheme.

Design Advice 
Milliken-Ontera’s team of talented and experienced in-house designers can partner with clients to offer advice on design and colour selection as well as floor layouts. When a standard product solution is not available, they can offer custom solutions that could range from a simple colour tweak in a standard pattern, to a complicated statement design that spans the entire floor or communicates a corporate or brand identity.

Visualisation Services 
We also offer detailed floor plans and other visualisation tools to allow designs to be viewed in an interior before a purchase decision is made.

SOLUTION DYED NYLON

Using a range of Solution Dyed Nylon (SDN) yarns and combining them with our state-of-the-art tufting technology, we can create a portfolio of designs that complements our Millitron® collections to offer clients a full portfolio of aesthetic, construction and budget possibilities.

Our SDN tufting technology enables the creation of original, statement collections such as Arctic Survey and Whale Song and everyday essentials such as Nordic Stories and Manaaki Neutral and Accent colourways.

To round out the portfolio, Karona 3 offers a versatile solid colour coordinates. Light Trails, featuring Econyl® 100% regenerated nylon, offers a winning solution when sustainability is the primary consideration.
