The Featured Product

Designer Jet® is a world class custom carpet technology for creating an infinite array of colours and bespoke designs you would never have thought possible in a carpet. It works by taking any striking pattern, drawing or image and using precision engineering to inject the dye into the carpet, offering a flexible, creative and performance driven carpet solution. Melbourne International Comedy Festival required a range of bespoke carpet designs to pair with each unique venue and vision that are utilised throughout the festival. Designer Jet® provided the ideal flooring solution and enabled the team at Melbourne International Comedy Festival to work alongside GH Commercial’s design teams to create a range of unique and branded designs to meet the required needs of each venue.
Our new Native Collection also provided a perfect standard product to be utilised in the Chinese Museum and Swiss Club for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Toatoa in colour 97 Horopito was used throughout these venues. This carpet plank product is inspired by natural lichen bark patterns found in trees native to New Zealand, Toatoa creates relaxing optics through repetition. The dappled display of nature’s shades forms a quiet, continuous appearance that lends itself to a variety of applications.
