Forbo Launches New Tessera In-touch
For more relaxed and informal workspaces
aking inspiration from natural
craft textiles and artisan weaves,
Forbo Flooring Systems has
launched a new softly striated carpet
tile collection; Tessera In-touch.
Designed to help de-formalise office
interiors, the new range allows
designers to create more relaxed and
calming working environments.
The In-touch collection features ten
planks, with hues that diffuse along their
width, rather than their length. Whilst any
of the colourways can be used alone,
each plank is part of pair, having three of
their four individual yarn colours in
common. This relationship of colour and
design ensures the paired colours flow
easily into each other to achieve tonal or
contrasting flows across the floor,
creating relaxing interior spaces without
the need for complicated space planning.
Janet Lowe, Head of Marketing UK and
Ireland at Forbo, said: “The current trend
for flexibility in the office environment
suggests that if workspaces were more
inviting and relaxed, employees would
work better, collaborate more and
ultimately be happier in work. Tessera
In-touch embraces this idea of a less
structured, more calming aesthetic to
produce a comfortable and tranquil
“The collection is available in
contemporary shades including on-trend
hues from mustard, blush and grey to
duck egg blue, all of which can be
combined to create different aesthetics.
Further designs can be fashioned by
playing with the plank format itself –
creating patterns such as herringbone or
half drop.”
Forbo aims to create better quality
environments in which people can live,
work and learn. Tessera carpet tiles
achieve this through low levels of VOC
emissions, excellent sound absorbency
and a wide range of stimulating designs
and sympathetic use of colour. In-touch
is manufactured sustainably, containing
60% recycled content by weight, and
using 100% renewable electricity.
