On the Salone del Mobile 2018 which took place from 17-22 April in Milano, Forbo Flooring has presented 3 highlights or so to say teasers of new floor coverings that will be introduced in 2018 or early 2019. Read more below about Philippe Starck, Marmoleum Splash and Fabscrab.
Within short our designers will tell you about their experiences on Salone.
Forbo Flooring Systems and visionary creator Philippe Starck are proud to announce their highly innovative cooperation in creating a new collection of floor covering systems: FLOTEX BY STARCK.
As Starck says “nothing replaces the painters hand” but with Forbo’s unique digital printing technique and thanks to the highly technological qualities of Flotex flooring, the creator’s vision can now be transferred to the floor.
Official launch date: September, 2018
Marmoleum Splash is a new design in Forbo’s magnificent linoleum collections. Splash is a lively, festive and exuberant and contemporary design which at the same time serves as a connection between classic marbled and uni patterned visuals in the collection. Marmoleum Splash is made from natural raw materials and is a CO2 neutral floor covering material.
Official launch date: January 2019
Fabscrap is created from excess granules that are saved within the Sphera homogeneous vinyl production process. In the zero waste production environment the granules are re-used in a random mix of colours to create a premium, phthalate free and near zero emission floor covering which is presented on a coloured background. Fabscrap is available in four base tones of beige, grey, blue and white. The granule mix varies slightly from batch to batch as the coloured granules are mixed as a result from leftovers from standard production runs.
Official launch date: May 2018
