flotex
by starck

Philippe Starck has created a collection of 3 design systems; Vortex, Artist and Twilight. Each of them includes 4 separate components that can be freely arranged to create unique floor plans to suit your project.

Using a high definition digital printing technique with the dense fibre surface of Flotex flocked flooring, Starck’s collection features cutting edge, unique designs. By playing on scale and transition, each of the three systems challenges tradition and creates a new language in the perception of interior spaces and floor covering design.

About Flotex by Starck

Play and create with different combinations

Forbo Flooring Systems has collaborated with visionary creator, Philippe Starck to design a highly innovative collection of floor covering systems: Flotex by STARCK.

High definition digital print
Using a high definition digital printing technique with the dense fibre surface of Flotex flocked flooring, Starck’s collection features unique patterns. By playing on scale and transition, each of the three systems challenges tradition and creates a new language in the perception of interior spaces and floor covering design.

Endless design options
The pattern of each full design system stretches ten metres in width, made up of 4 different components; a central design, a left and a right transitional design and a semi-plain texture design that features a variety of accent colours. Each component spans 2 metres in width. With these mix & match design systems, you can create your own unique floor plan.

For every location and project
The many colour options and different combinations of the 3 systems make Flotex by STARCK highly adaptable to every location and project.

Flotex Installation & floorcare

For installations where more than one element of a design is to be fitted together in the same area, all items need to be ordered at the same time to ensure full colour matching across all designs.

Please note that Flotex has a pile direction so sheets cannot be turned around and laid in the opposite direction as this will cause a marked difference in appearance.

A2 and A4 references are different, please do not rotate these items. One of each must be ordered if both a left and a right transition are required in the floor plan.

The unique construction of Flotex enables quick & easy cleaning and maintenance. The smooth straight fibres of Flotex do not trap particles of soil, allowing them to be removed without difficulty during cleaning.
