Innovative colouring system creates fresh look with no pattern repeats
Forbo has launched Allura Fusion
Forbo Flooring Systems has launched Allura Fusion; a luxury vinyl tile (LVT) collection that uses innovative colouring techniques to create a fresh unique look, with no pattern repeats.
The trend collection, which was recently decorated with the prestigious international Red Dot Design Award, features four plank and three tile designs, with every piece of the Allura Fusion range completely unique. No two planks or tiles are the same, resulting in an organic and truly-individual aesthetic.
This is made possible by the innovative manufacturing technique, which combines traditional printing methods with free-flowing, coloured PVC streams to produce the 0.7mm wear layer. The result is a flowing, expressive appearance, which is further heightened by the realistic wood embossing on the plank options.
For example, the White Fused Oak colourway within the plank range features white, grey and transparent streams in the wear layer, which adds an extra dimension to the natural wood embossing and really brings the design to life. The Black Fused Oak option is characterised by the dominant solid black colour, which is mixed with a grey paste stream to create a playful aesthetic.
The luxury vinyl tile collection allows for a striking choice of interiors
Finally, the Green and Purple Colour Fuses deliver a more-abstract design within the collection. They are solid coloured planks, with bright colour accent streams that create a truly-striking effect.
Three 50x50 concrete tile designs complete the Allura Fusion collection. Created using one coloured paste stream and a transparent top coat, specifiers can choose from Fused Grigio, which is a light concrete shade; Fused Natural Concrete, a mid-tone option; and Fused Nero Concrete, the darkest shade available.
Janet Lowe, head of marketing UK and Ireland at Forbo Flooring Systems, said: “As Allura is one of our most-popular floor coverings, we wanted to bring something completely new to the collection and we certainly think we have achieved this with Allura Fusion. The fluid, organic designs give specifiers the freedom to create truly individual installations, safe in the knowledge that there will be no repetition even in the largest of spaces.”
Allura is 100% phthalate free, REACH compliant and produced in Europe with low emission levels.
