Forbo introduces new, award-winning Marmoleum Solid collection

Forbo’s new Marmoleum Solid collection, aade with natural, renewable ingredients, combines award-winning design with durability and sustainability to create a healthy, pure foundation for today’s interior environments.

Available in five impressive ranges, the Marmoleum Solid collection includes a modern take on classic Concrete, a beautifully textured Slate offering that combines the look of stone with the performance of Marmoleum, nature-inspired shades of Piano, and a pure Walton line that creates a subtle stage for interior finishes. The collection also includes Forbo’s innovative Marmoleum Cocoa collection which was awarded a 2017 iF Product Design Award. By adding cocoa shells to traditional Marmoleum ingredients, Forbo created a new and exciting surface texture that is both natural looking and contemporary. Marmoleum Cocoa and Slate have each won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award as well.

The Marmoleum Solid collections are 100% biobased, naturally PVC-free and phthalate-free, and feature inherent antimicrobial and antistatic properties that improve indoor air quality and resist bacteria growth without chemical additives. Marmoleum’s sustainable, water-based Topshield 2 finish provides occupancy-ready installation and exceptional performance against real world flooring damage, including soiling, staining, scratching and scuffing. While non-renewable floor coverings may be permanently damaged, your beautiful Marmoleum floor can easily and cost-effectively be renewed, bringing it back to its original beauty, even after years of heavy use. In fact, Marmoleum has a system service life of 30 years.
