Defining comfortable spaces with Forbo’s new marmoleum linear collection

Public Sector Tue, Oct 5, 2021 1:10 PM

Public buildings are beginning to move away from the traditional, institutionalised look and instead are adopting more ‘human centred’ designs to support the health, well-being and comfort of end users.

In response to this, Forbo Flooring Systems has refreshed its CO2 neutral (from cradle to gate) Marmoleum Linear collection, with a beautiful natural colour palette, ranging from light earthy tones to cool greys.

Featuring a softly striated design, evoking an expression of wood, Forbo’s new Marmoleum Linear collection will help specifiers to bring a touch of nature inside to create warm, welcoming and relaxing spaces.

The linear aesthetic will not only emphasise the softness of a space, but it can also subtly connect various areas within a building and gently navigate end users intuitively from one space to another.

Thanks to its natural colour palette, the Marmoleum Linear collection now exudes a contemporary, personal feel. Comprising 16 colourways – of which 11 are completely new – the range lends itself to four colour groups: cool greys, warm greys, earthy tones and warm browns.

The cool and warm greys have a clean, fresh and composed aesthetic, while the earthy tones and warm browns possess a deep and intimate characteristic.

Karen Wilding, Senior Marketing Executive at Forbo Flooring Systems, commented: “Our new Marmoleum Linear collection has been designed to help drive that ‘feel at home’ experience within public buildings – and we are delighted with the outcome. We now offer a beautifully balanced natural colour palette, with a design that also aids easy cleaning and maintenance, thanks to the soil hiding properties of the linear design.

“The collection can also be simply combined with Forbo’s other Marmoleum offerings to create a truly sustainable integrated flooring scheme. All of the designs are also available in our popular Decibel construction, which delivers 18 dB impact sound reduction.”

Comfortable by nature, Forbo’s Marmoleum Linear collection is manufactured from 97% natural raw materials and is CO2 neutral (from cradle to gate) without offsetting. Free from plasticisers and synthetic additives, as well as low in emissions, the collection is the perfect solution to create a modern, healthy and sustainable indoor environment.

What’s more, the naturally bacteriostatic Marmoleum has also been awarded the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval as, with the correct cleaning and maintenance regime, it won't harbour dust mites.
