Design concept

Colours for all requirements

Sphera Element offers a complete colour palette, with logical steps from light to dark and from neutral to more pronounced colours. The calm and clean floor designs have the ability to blend into their surroundings and complement interior finishes such as wood and stone.

Softer and more calming atmosphere
In modern environments more and more daylight is used and floors are often used to give the interior a colourful appearance. The new subtle colours in the Sphera Element collection can work to create a softer and more calming atmosphere, bringing a more homely feel to a (care) environment. Element contains many colours with high LRV values, which support the user experience in sufficiently light indoors.

Warm neutrals, cooler shades and contrast
The extensive colour palette offers a combination of warm neutrals and cooler tones of grey, green, blue and purple. Pastels and bright accent colours can be used for areas requiring zoning or to create an authentic and welcoming place. The Element collection is colour co-ordinated with Forbo’s Under Control portfolio for controlled environments.

The Sphera Element collection contains 9 Contrast visuals. This new design has a more pronounced pattern and a higher contrast between the three colour components. These more outspoken contrast colours have excellent dirt hiding and scratch-resistant properties.

Whether Sphera Element is used in healthcare environments, educational buildings or public buildings, staff and visitors will enjoy the functionality and pleasant atmosphere of this homogeneous vinyl floor covering!

In the magazine you can find some inspirational photos, including close-ups and examples of how the Sphera Element Contrast colours can be combined.

NCS & LRV

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 measurement 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 download center.
