Each season has a different meaning to every one of us depending on where we are in the world and our culture and traditions. With our Moods of the Season, we hope to translate those feelings into design in a way that will both complement and question, suggesting products and scenarios that we hope will inspire you throughout the year.
Wherever we are, our seasons are influenced by nature, and as such, each of our Moods of the Season will in some way reflect that, highlighting not only Forbo’s commitment to sustainability but also the importance we place on nature as the key to wellbeing in interior environments.
Every three months we will bring you a seasonal taster selection from our comprehensive product portfolios, showcasing items that bring together our thoughts and feelings at the different times of the year. Each of these will aim to capture the essence of each season and communicate its "mood".
Each Mood of the Season is carefully compiled by our team of international design professionals and consists of a selection of Forbo products chosen to complement each other and convey the essence of each season.
Their inspiration comes from a wide range of sources, including interiors, fashion, home furnishings, industrial design, art, graphics, and media. The colours are selected from the Forbo Global Colour Card, a balanced selection of interior trend colours that is updated each year, and is used to create the colours for all of our product collections.
For us, this Mood is about more than just colour. It embraces surfaces and environment, suggests space and atmosphere, and tells a unique story that we hope will engage you and encourage you to create your own narrative.
The selection of our Forbo products in the first Mood of the Season is a combination of various textures, tactilities, and functionalities. It’s a selection of welcoming and rich materials that evoke a feeling of wellbeing, comfort, and belonging.
Colours are warm and spicy in green, purple, red, or ochre colour tones that neighbour the selected four NCS colours and also tie in well with the Pantone Color of the Year 2023: Viva Magenta 18-1750.
Our second selection of colours and materials is inspired by the spring season. Spring is a time of optimism, growth, and renewal.
A period of change, a chance to look forward and an opportunity to refresh or bring in the new.
Colours are uplifting and convey a sense of harmony and wellbeing. There is a feeling of natural freshness as once again we look forward to being outdoors.
Our third selection of colours and materials is inspired by the summer season. The colours of the summer are vibrant yet soothing, with pastel tones that hint at a beach-inspired atmosphere that is both calming and energising.
When it comes to materials, think warm, engaging, and fresh. Textures are smooth and soft, symbolising a connection with nature.
Our fourth "Mood of the Season" selection draws its inspiration from the cosy vibes of autumn. It features colours that capture the essence of this season.
We have seamlessly blended warm neutrals and earthy hues with shades of rust, caramel, and terracotta. Subtle hints of yellow and orange infuse a touch of vibrancy into this warm and golden palette.
