The French ski resort of Val Thorens wished to modernize its tourist office which receives an ever more international and urban clientele. For this new area, which is more open, the Tokio agency proposed a floor with a custom-made design, taken from a photography of the lunar surface which has been reproduced on the Flotex® flocked textile floor covering. The visual effect produced is impressive.
“We approached Forbo, in order to better understand the printing process of the design.” Pascal Marchand, who’s in charge of the Tokio agency, explained.
Concerning the acoustic performance, the architect is thinking about using a resilient flooring like Flotex and he noticed that Forbo is proposing custom-made printings of his flocked textile. The design has yet to be determined. “We had the idea of proposing a reproduction of the lunar surface a bit by accident, while we were listing all the astronomy-related events to come in a meeting with the client”.
