While it is commonly dictated that we are drawn to natural textures like wood and stone, there is an increasing demand for more varied surface finishes within office design to create more interesting and stimulating environments. The look and feel of textured materials have the ability to add depth and dimension to a space, without being distracting in a professional setting.
Colourful, vibrant workplaces have also increasingly become the norm, as companies tune into the importance of colour and the impact that different colours can have. There is no doubt that colour plays a fundamental role in the way we perceive the world around us and the power of colour within the workplace has the potential to subconsciously affect the brain, impacting on employee productivity, as well as their general mood. Therefore, it is for this reason that Forbo’s latest Flotex floor covering focuses on colour.
Offering the warmth, comfort and acoustic properties of a textile floor covering, combined with practical and hygienic benefits of a resilient, Forbo’s Flotex Colour collection consists of subtle tones and pared back hues, inspired by the surfaces of urban builds and vibrant colour pops of city lights. Available in a spectrum of 96 shades and 5 unique designs to choose from: Metro, Penang, Calgary, Savannah and new to 2019, Canyon, the designs can create inspiring and stimulating workspaces. Flotex Colour is available in a plank, sheet and tile format to allow for further design freedom.
