Innovation that comes naturally.
Marmoleum Cocoa embraces our ethos of sustainable design and truly is a new addition to our Marmoleum flooring.

By adding Cocoa shells to the traditional Marmoleum ingredients we have created a new and exciting surface texture that is both natural looking and contemporary in feel.

The inclusion of cocoa adds a rich granular look that is fresh, modern and also provides dirt hiding properties.

LRV
In architecture, Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a measure of the percentage of visible and usable light that is reflected from a surface when illuminated by a light source. The LRV can be linked to a number of decisions on which a colour can be chosen. The approximate LRV of a colour indicates the amount of visible light that a colour will reflect. Black has a light reflectance value of 0% and absorbs all light. White has a light reflectance value of 100% and keeps a building light and cool. It also links to the use of electricity where lighter colours need less lighting, which is a direct saving for the environment. All Forbo products carry a light reflection value, which can be found in the text next to the enlargement of the tabletop.

NCS
NCS colour coding describes the colour of any material. With numeric colour codes, so called NCS Notations, such as NCS S 1080-Y70R, any colour can be described precisely. NCS has defined 1950 standardised colours at every 10th step of the colour space to represent the entire colour space. Each notation's colour sample is visually identical to any other colour sample of the same notation, whether it is a standardised colour or a colour in between the 1950 standard colours. This way you can find matching flooring colours with other coloured items in a room.

The 'Natural Colour System' NCS has been developped in order to indentify the colour value, its intensity and hue for a product. By using the NCS maesurement system, colours and colour groups can be identified and matched regardless of the material that has been used. In this way colour coordinates for different aspects of the interior of a building can be determined. All Forbo Flooring products carry an NCS code, which can be found next to the enlargement of the tabletop and in our downloadcenter.

About Marmoleum Cocoa

Marmoleum Cocoa: natural innovation

The Dutch region ‘De Zaanstreek’ - the region where our Marmoleum factory is located - is an area where a lot of cocoa is being produced and processed. This gave us the inspiration for our new Cocoa floor covering; A combination of our sustainable Marmoleum flooring mixed with cocoa husks.

The tough cocoa husks are the rest product of cocoa production. We collect them and grind them finely and spread them onto the Marmoleum. The Cocoa husks itself have facets of different colors and give the floor a unique granular look & feel.

iF DESIGN AWARD 2017

Marmoleum Cocoa receives iF DESIGN AWARD 2017 and Red Dot Design Award 2017

Our new Marmoleum Cocoa floor covering with its unique cocoa husk enhanced linoleum design, has been awarded with the iF DESIGN AWARD 2017 and the Red Dot Design Award 2017.

"Using cocoa husks as part of the Marmoleum Cocoa collection not only improves the sustainable profile of Forbo’s linoleum by adding a fifth natural ingredient, it also results in a new tactility and a design where the subtle organic scattering and fine coloration create a new and innovative design feature for the linoleum product category."
