Marmoleum Cocoa and Marmoleum Slate receive Reddot Design Award 2017

Marmoleum Cocoa and Marmoleum Slate receive Reddot Design Award 2017

2 of our newest Marmoleum flooring ranges - Marmoleum Cocoa and Marmoleum Slate - have been awarded with the Reddot Design Award 2017. The collections are part of the renewed Marmoleum Solid range which is at the heart of Forbo’s contemporary linoleum designs.

About Marmoleum Cocoa:
Marmoleum Cocoa is a cocoa husk enhanced linoleum design available in 5 earth tones. Using cocoa husks not only improves the sustainable profile of Forbo’s linoleum flooring by adding a 5th natural ingredient, it also results in a new tactility and design where the subtle organic scattering and fine coloration create an innovative design feature.

Manufacturing chocolate in the Netherlands originates from the 19th century and is located in the same region where Forbo Flooring Systems is manufacturing linoleum for well over 100 years.

The upcycling of the Cocoa industries’ waste stream is a fine example of Forbo’s continuous effort to innovate linoleum as the original and most sustainable resilient floor covering to date.

About Marmoleum Slate:
Concrete and stone-like visuals always have been part of traditional linoleum designs which have their origin in the classic marbled varieties that are well known from the early linoleum days.

The new varieties in concrete and stone equivalents are more appealing to an audience that connects sustainability and design for modern environments.

With Marmoleum Slate Forbo created a random embossed structure on top of a minimal tone in tone marbled linoleum which resulted in a realistic slate floor covering. There are 5 slate varieties ranging from dark anthracite grey to copper and metal color tones.

Both Marmoleum Cocoa and Marmoleum Slate will be available from April 2017, together with the renewed ranges of Marmoleum Walton, Piano and Concrete, presented in Marmoleum Solid.
