Forbo energises new student accommodation

Manchester design studio Jasper Sanders + Partners has used variety of Forbo’s products in a combination of bright colours to create an energetic and enriching environment at New Bridewell, Bristol’s latest student accommodation development.

Jasper Sanders, Design Director fitted out communal areas with Tessera Layout carpet tiles which he specified for their modularity, contemporary colour palette and robust durability. Anthracite grey provides a unifying backdrop, connecting different activity spaces highlighted with bright colour pops, yellow being the dominant colour in study areas and a various blue shades in more social areas. The ‘pixellated’ layout reflects the long history of the University’s Department of Computer Science.

Jasper also specified Sarlon Acoustic Vinyl to reduce impact sound in the studio flats and in turn, to improve the health and well-being of the tenants.
