Salone del Mobile 2015 | theme Flooring
This is the first in a series of reports about the Salone del Mobile 2015. Each report is based around a theme. The kickoff issue deals with the latest developments around a familiair theme here at Forbo: Flooring.
The Salone showed various perspectives such as; a classic flooring with a twist by Patricia Urquiola, an elegant flooring concept designed to provide orientation by Nendo, or a tasteful makeover of functional pallets into a glorious podium for a great furniture collection by Schemata architects for Vitra.
By Patricia UrQuiola- an unconventional contemporary perspective on a traditional fitting system for a parquet flooring.
Commissioned by Listone Giordano
Designed by Nendo- various alcantara (imitation suede) colours layered and rolled up to create a ‘log’ which is than cut into slices to create the effect of ‘alcantara tree-rings'. Designed for Alcantara
Need for Asahi Woodtec - a wood flooring system providing orientation by introducing different vertical joints.
Joints designed in three interval patterns; a wide one expressing ‘slowness’, a narrow one to create ‘quickness’, and a midpoint between the two.
Allowing one to determine a spatial direction and to create a sense of ‘pace’ or ‘speed’
