Stefan Scholten, internationally renowned designer and a leading representative of Dutch design, has worked for prestigious clients such as HAY, Maharam, Cappellini, Nanimarquina and 1616 / Arita in recent years. Based on his unique use of colour, reductionist and functional designs, Forbo Flooring approached him with a special assignment.
Stefan Scholten studied the original recipe and properties of linoleum. “I wanted to understand the pure material based on the original recipe. As a reference I used the natural materials that you find in interiors, such as wood, leather, pottery and textiles, and I searched for the original nuance. The end result echoes an emotional value and at the same time is optimally applicable.”
