Threefold Architects deliver new coworking space Paddington Works
Inspired by Brunel’s iconic station, the design uses a limited palette of simple and robust materials that give the the space an industrial and civic quality.
Amtico’s new Form collection is a hardwearing LVT, designed with a variety of commercial environments in mind, including hospitality, retail and office settings. The collection is also highly tactile and textured, offering all the charm and characteristics of natural materials.

Form boasts 36 Woods and Stones that offer the charm and character of natural materials with the unrivalled performance of premium LVT. The organic, authentic palette and raw surface textures help architects, designers and specifiers to create spaces that draw influences from biophilic design while contributing to positive wellbeing.
The Form collection consists of three key textures: Natural Wood Grain brings the sensation, subtlety and impact of real timber with authentic grain textures in seven colours; Artisan Emboss Wood, a hand-scraped surface texture provides a dense detail found in time-worn, deeply weathered wood, which is available 23 colours; and Ceramic Emboss, a smooth, subtle surface texture that’s closer to fine ceramic and enhances the natural variations of Form’s contemporary palette of six stones.
To complement the collection’s natural beauty, Amtico Form is also available in four additional laying patterns; Parquet, Basket Weave, Pavestone and the exclusive new Hex. The latter is a sophisticated hexagon shape that showcases Amtico’s advanced cutting capabilities and accentuates the characteristics and tonal shifts across the Stones, making each tile unique.
Amtico Form boasts a high density 0.7mm wear layer, high-performance urethane coating, and a 12-year commercial warranty to stand up to everyday wear and tear, even in heavy commercial environments. Form products are available as planks or tiles, which can be enhanced with an optional Amtico Acoustic backing layer to reduce impact sound by up to 19dB.
