Description

Turning Forbo Flooring waste material into wall tiles: The tiles are made of 50% Forbo jute fibre. Jute fibre is the only waste material in the production process for Forbo linoleum. By combining it with a plaster, the fluff is transformed into very strong tiles with distinct patterns. The original characteristics of the plaster are changed by this addition, giving this waste material a second life and a new, durable purpose. By using this waste material, Forbo linoleum becomes a zero-waste product.
