The theme of Masterly this year, is linked to the Rembrandt year in The Netherlands. We will be exhibiting in Palazzo room 26 and will be showing a link between the colours of Rembrandt and the colours of 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 Rembrandt's 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 colour in linoleum and Rembrandt’s delicate touch is seen in the refinement of the linoleum designs that are created today.
Forbo’s palette is that of Rembrandt. It meets the eye of the master in its collections of colour tones and structures making it available for modern and contemporary indoor spaces in places where people live, work, interact, relax, heal, learn and play.
Extracts from Rembrandts paintings are being printed on our Flotex flocked flooring which is begin placed as a rug underneath the colourful palette of linoleum tubes.
Visitors of Masterly, The Dutch in Milano will experience many different Marmoleum structures and colors, all based on the beautiful palette of the world-famous Dutch painting artist Rembrandt. Our linoleum brand, Marmoleum, is the only CO2 neutral resilient flooring and the best choice for every sustainable interior.
