marmoleum
meets mendini

In close cooperation with the Italian architect and designer Alessandro Mendini we have created 3 unique Marmoleum designs that reflect his pointillist style: Proust, Harlekino and Plato. The 3 designs are available in a bright, contrasting variant and one of more subdued, greyish tones, both in the same geometric pattern.

"The commission from Forbo Flooring gave me the opportunity to design a Proust floor in Marmoleum. The variations are keyed in such a way that they are easily recognisable and can be used one after the other."

"A product is never mine alone. When I have a good idea, I try to realise it and then choose a company. If it’s a bad company, then the result is a bad product, or no product at all. A strong company, on the other hand, has all the necessary technology and productive capacity at its disposal."

"The commission from Forbo Flooring gave me the opportunity to design a Proust floor in Marmoleum. The variations are keyed in such a way that they are easily recognisable and can be used one after the other – for the floor of a store, for example.

But the effect is much stronger when they are combined in a single space – simultaneously on the floor, the walls and the ceiling. The advantage here is that the walls then function as a Marmoleum showcase and a sort of three-dimensional Marmoleum catalogue."

Proust

Memories of Proust

This floor design comes closest to designs made earlier by Mendini such as the Poltrona di Proust. The brush-strokes are clearly visible in this floor, powerfully magnified to a size of about 50 cm. Proust contains 7 colours.

As with all Mendini floors, the panels can be connected to create a wall-to-wall design. It’s also possible to lay a panel as if it were a rug, creating a strong accent within a larger uniform area of Marmoleum flooring.
