A selection of new and innovative flooring products to inspire, thrill clients and create sensational design schemes
Forbo's Marmoleum Modular allows specifiers to combine and connect various shapes, sizes and colours of tiles to create new and unique flooring designs.
The collection is made up of more than 144 items, with a variety of colours, designs and complementary tile sizes, including tiles in four sizes from extra-large (75cmx50cm) to small (25cmx25cm). Two plank options (100cmx15cm and 100cmx25cm) are also available.
The modular collection is based around four broad themes: shade; colour; marble; and lines.
To further help specifiers, Forbo has developed a series of design 'grids' that can be used as part of its online Room Planner tool and demonstrates how design transforms into real floors in real environments. forbo-flooring.co.uk

The latest designs to emanate from the ongoing collaboration between Swedish design company Bolon and fashion house Missoni include a new interpretation of the Italian brand's Zigzag pattern.
The Bolon by Missoni 2015 range is available in three patterns and 13 designs in total, including Zigzag aubergine (shown). Marie Eklund, chief creative officer at Bolon, says: 'Bolon and Missoni have become great friends so when it comes to creativity and experimentation, there's no holding us back. This attitude, together with innovative new weaving technology, has led to some fantastic results. For 2015, textile feelings are stronger, structure is deeper and more distinct, and colours are richer.' bolon.com
