Flotex by Starck Offers Highly Adaptable Flooring Solution

11/01/2018 By Rachel Kats

Visionary designer Philippe Starck and Forbo’s product development and design team for Flotex Flocked flooring have collaborated to create the Flotex by Starck collection.

Combined, Starck’s rich designs complement the technical benefits of Flotex’s textile floor, which provides the hard-wearing and durable characteristics of a resilient floor, but also offers the warmth and acoustical benefits of a carpet. The result is a product that is eye-catching, slip and stain resistant, waterproof and washable.
