This year marks the 80th anniversary of Mipolam from Gerflor, an original homogeneous sheet flooring. It is considered an industry first in its respective product category, and is still valued and installed by designers and specifiers today. Standing the test of time over many decades, Mipolam remains aligned with today’s aesthetic trends and performance standards.

Mipolam has grown from a single collection to a variety of lines with hundreds of colors available worldwide. Gerflor will introduce its latest selections later this year with Mipolam Classic, which will be available in tiles and sheet. The new offerings are a nod to the original pattern—an organic, linear directional design, similar to a cirrus cloud. Read on to learn how Mipolam breaks down.
