Forbo Launches New Tessera In-Touch

Forbo Launches New Tessera In-Touch

For more relaxed and informal workspaces

Taking 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 atmosphere.

“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.
