Forbo freshens its Tessera contour carpet tile collection

With the transition from geometric effects towards softer more organic motifs and textures within the workplace, Forbo Flooring Systems has refreshed its Tessera Contour carpet tile collection by adding four different and fresh tones to the palette.

When it comes to designing a workplace environment, the theme of nature prevails as specifiers look for ways to create more comfortable interiors that mirror the outside landscape. As such, Forbo’s new Tessera Contour collection, which consists of 13 naturally inspired colourways and boasts a soft striated design, will help to create a more relaxing, yet inspiring work space for end users to enjoy.

The four new colourways added to the collection are Morning Dew, a warm grey; Himalayan Salt, a natural chestnut shade; Pastures new, a soft, vintage green and Fresh Leaves, a contemporary mustard tone.

Janet Lowe, Head of Marketing UK and Ireland, at Forbo Flooring Systems, commented:

“The newly refreshed Tessera Contour collection consists of a tonal progression of muted natural shades, which range from very dark to very pale shades. The collection has also been designed to maximise installation possibilities, as different aesthetic effects may be achieved depending on whether the tiles are installed in a monolithic, half-drop, quarter turn or non-directional configuration.”

“The popular carpet tile collection is also now manufactured with 100% Refresh™, the first and most sustainable solution-dyed polyamide yarn from Universal Fibres™ for added durability and colour fastness.”

Tessera Contour meets the Ska criteria for M12 soft floor coverings and also has a ProBac recycled mineral filler, with low amount of modified bitumen and polyester fleece. It also contains over 76% recycled content.
