Forbo Flotex & Tibor

Pioneering textile designer Tibor Reich - creator of Tibor - was one of the most prominent figures in the British post-war textile industry. Although his striking patterns date from the 1950s, they could have been designed yesterday.

Forbo Flooring has teamed up with this British design legend to create an exciting new range for Flotex. Most of the designs selected by Forbo are from Tibor’s ground-breaking Fotexur collection, launched in 1957, winner of the Council of Industrial Design’s inaugural Design Centre Award.

Had he been alive today, Tibor would have relished working with Forbo. Thankfully his creativity lives on through his internationally recognized archives, housed at the Victoria & Albert Museum and University of Leeds International Textile Archive.

Flotex provides the perfect medium for Tibor’s dynamic graphic designs. The cutting-edge technology of digital printing gives a new lease of life to his arresting patterns.
