FORBO WEAVES DESIGN AND ENVIRONMENT INTO NEW TESSERA TILE
Tessera Weave is a high quality textured carpet tile from Forbo Flooring Systems, designed for commercial, recreational, hospitality and public sector interiors, combining discreet good looks with a superior environmental profile
A highly versatile loop carpet tile with a subtle linear grain, Weave is available in 19 vibrant tonal colourways and is suitable for broadloom, tessellated or quarter turn installation. Manufactured according to Forbo’s green design principles, using advanced techniques, this new floor covering has a richly woven appearance that belies its low pile weight. The combination of rich texture and compact loop pile make Weave ideal for use in high traffic applications.
Weave’s appealing tactile quality is achieved using contrasting twists of yarn with tonal highlights. The yarn itself is made from Aquafil Econyl polyamide – consisting of 100% recycled industrial and post consumer waste, including unlikely source materials such as abandoned fishing nets. Further adding to the environmental credentials of this new Tessera tile, and demonstrating Forbo’s commitment to sustainable design, Weave is produced in the UK using ‘green’ electricity from renewable sources
David Breen, Product Director from Forbo Flooring Systems commented: “At Forbo our guiding principle is ‘creating better environments’ and with this goal in mind we are constantly striving to develop attractive, design-led flooring solutions that also meet our stringent environmental criteria. Advances in manufacturing technology mean that it is possible to produce high quality floor coverings that combine form, function and environmental performance in a commercially appealing solution – Tessera Weave is the perfect example of this.”
Weave can be combined to great effect with other Forbo floor coverings in modular formats, such as Marmoleum, Flotex and luxury vinyl tiles, and with other options from Forbo’s extensive portfolio, to create fully integrated flooring designs that meet the individual requirements of each application area.
