Tessera Seagrass from Forbo

Tessera Seagrass from Forbo

Natural, organic harmony for floorspaces

Echoing the latest trend of biophilic design, Forbo Flooring Systems has expanded its softly striated Tessera Seagrass carpet tile collection to incorporate a new range of naturally inspired colourways. The result is a beautiful plank collection, exuding a very natural organic aesthetic that offers comfort and tranquillity.

The relaxed design, with its understated linear effect, presents 12 colourways, each infused with a neutral, warm palette that delivers a natural, organic harmony to a wide range of environments. Sitting alongside the solid favourites of black, oyster, white and indigo, are entirely new shades such as pewter, dandelion, meadow, and teal, giving a very real and earthy interpretation for interiors.

Janet Lowe, Head of Marketing UK and Ireland at Forbo Flooring Systems, explains: “The organic, naturally inspired colourways of the new Tessera Seagrass collection span the spectrum from dark to pale shades, the latter achieving high Light Reflectance Value (LRV) ratings. This ensures that as much light as possible is reflected and used within an area, opening up spaces in the most natural of ways.

“The plank format of the carpet tiles in this collection provides designers with the ability to create a variety of floor designs, such as classic herringbone and half drop patterns, all with a contemporary twist. The planks can also be installed alongside the Allura Flex Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) collection using the same tackifier and without the need for transition strips, which allows a fully integrated flooring scheme to be designed.”

Despite its very generous pile weight that delivers the feeling of luxury underfoot, Tessera Seagrass remains sustainable in the way it is manufactured. In fact, it contains 61% recycled content; is manufactured using 100% renewable electricity and meets the requirements of the SKA schemes.

Forbo is committed to creating better quality environments, in which people can live, work and learn. Its Tessera carpet tile collection achieves this through low levels of VOC emissions, excellent sound absorbency and a wide range of stimulating designs and sympathetic colours to create inspiring interiors.
