Forbo’s main linoleum brand, Marmoleum, is a natural floor associated with true sustainability, durability, high quality and innovative design. The natural floor is made from 97% natural raw materials, 70% of which are rapidly renewable, along with a 43% recycled content.

The brand recently introduced Marmoleum Concrete, which is a collection of natural linoleum sheeting that presents a variety of 16 subtle shades of concrete with fine colour nuances that are sure to complement most colour palettes. The flooring product is versatile in application, colour and design.

Some of the benefits of installing this floor are that it is easy to clean, long lasting and biodegradable. Natural bactericidal and antistatic properties prevent the growth of microorganisms, reduce the risk of electric shock, and make for easy dust and damp-mop cleaning. With proper maintenance, this floor will last for decades.

Create pure distinctive modern spaces
The concrete range forms part a collection of five individual textures that provide the foundation for creating pure distinctive modern spaces. The solid collection combines attractive contemporary appearance with unrivalled versatility, bringing integrity to any space.

Marmoleum Concrete creates original and exciting spaces with a sense of texture and tactility. The deep colour tones and characteristic design elements connect easily with any interior and convey the right first impression, contributing to a comfortable space. Its extensive colour palette fits the trend for neutral, solid colour experiences. Marmoleum Concrete can be combined beautifully with interior finish materials such as wood, glass and metal, and the flooring can be incorporated as the focal point of the room or the subtle surface on which other materials can take centre stage.

Subtle concrete structures in warm and cool tones
Pure emotion is created with this versatile, authentic floor covering with a long and proud heritage that has durable and sustainable relevance which is more pertinent than ever. The solid marble design of Marmoleum Concrete differentiates itself from the classic Marmoleum flooring with its subtle concrete structure. There are both warm and cool tones that extend to six bright colours to create powerful accents in any floor design. Accent colours in this range have been specifically designed to be combined with their “shimmer” counterpart – neutral concretes with a flash of colour that shimmers through the surface. With the two matching visuals, stunning floor designs are created.

Marmoleum is a natural floorcovering for any commercial project. And since its biodegradable, after a long 30-plus year life cycle, the scrapped flooring’s life can start all over again. Alternatively, controlled incineration of the floor delivers a higher caloric value and creates thermal energy that outweighs the energy used during production. This demonstrates a full life cycle from which nature ultimately benefits.
