Forbo Marmoleum Unexpected Nature – naturally surprising
May 25th, 2011
New Marmoleum Unexpected Nature is a flooring collection that pushes the design boundaries of what we think of as linoleum – and boasts very strong eco credentials.
Drawing on nature’s more unusual colours and combinations, inspired by authentic images of landscapes, the collection is fresh and uncompromising.
Designs emit a tangible sense of tension through contrasts of soft and strong, saturated and pastel, rough and delicate, heavy and light and cool and warm.
Nine marbles burst with unexpected fluorescent to rich colours, and nine charcoal banded options add gentle drama.
Forbo Marmoleum is made of 100 percent bio-based content and carries more third-party, independent, LCA based environmental certifications than any other flooring material. It has a 100 year plus track record of performance and durability, and sets a benchmark unmatched in the resilient flooring industry.
Its permanent, natural properties kill MRSA and Norovirus; it is naturally anti-static, R10 slip rated, features Topshield for no sealing and offers easy low cost cleaning.
Forbo Marmoleum meets ISO 14001:2004; and has been independently certified as meeting the requirements of the Good Environmental Choice standard GECA 25-2011-FloorCoverings, achieving level A recognition by the GBCA and complying with the requirements of the Green Star materials (flooring) credit rating tools, as well as Environmental Choice certified (ECNZ) in New Zealand.
