Salone del Mobile 2019

Forbo Flooring Systems presenting Forbo + Rembrandt in the Dutch Pavilion during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy.

Forbo + Rembrandt is a spectacular presentation of the connection between the paintings of Rembrandt and the way the master applied colour, structure, detail and tactility by using the pigments and materials that today still form the essence of the art of making Linoleum.

When exploring Rembrandt’s art and craftsmanship colour, refinement and the magic of light are most often highlighted as the master’s touch. When looking at the detail of the materiality of Rembrandts palette there is a striking resemblance with the raw materials used for making linoleum. Rembrandt’s canvas is the backing of linoleum sheet, Rembrandt’s paint is made with the same pigments and vegetable oil that create color in linoleum and Rembrandt’s delicate touch is seen in the refinement of the linoleum designs that are created today.

Forbo Flooring Systems wants to show people how we admire the work of this world-famous Dutch painting artist by presenting different creations in the Dutch Pavilion.

Many of the aspects of Rembrandt’s work, whether it is the refinement of his paintings, the loose touch of his drawings or the intricacy of his etchings can be found as elements that are part of the art of making linoleum.

Making linoleum is a craft which few people master. Mixing pigments with natural linseed oil, wood flour and rosin, creating colourful granules that when mixed together in the production process create organic designs that provide visuals full of detail and expression. Forbo’s palette is that of Rembrandt. It meets the eye of the master in its collections of color tones and structures making it available for modern and contemporary indoor spaces in places where people live, work, interact, relax, heal, learn and play.

Masterly

As part of Masterly, the Dutch in Milano, Forbo Flooring Systems has recreated Rembrandt’s paintings, etchings and drawings into a modern colourful display in which the masterpieces are shown in their individual colors. The presentation in the Dutch Pavilion provides a fitting back ground illustrating how the two worlds meet.
