Weinheim, January 2021–Interface®, a worldwide commercial flooring company and global leader in sustainability, today unveils its latest nora®by Interface rubber flooring designs – norament 926 castello and norament 926 kivo – featuring a modern design aesthetic. Designers today are furnishing interiors with a lived-in, relaxed and chic mood. The urban look is back in vogue, and the latest norament 926 castello and norament 926 kivomeet the creative requirements of modern, high-class areas.
In architecture, good design withstands the test of time. Architectural landmarks can reinvent themselves alongside ever-evolving styles and build bridges across eras. Similarly, norament 926 castello – a 3.5-millimeter-thick floor covering – is intended to be timeless in its design, with marbling reminiscent of stylish limestone surfaces, adding a touch of classic luxury to the surroundings. Each tile is unique and features nora’s newly developed two-tone surface design with two different gloss levels. The elegant colour palette includes eight warm shades of grey and beige.
“Apart from its robustness, norament 926 castello performs particularly well in the fields of acoustics and ergonomics", says Dirk Oswald, Head of Product & Brand Management nora product lines. “With our permanently elastic material, less impact sound is generated compared to other resilient or hard flooring surfaces. This minimizes disturbing noises and improves the acoustics in interiors, which is a great advantage, especially in highly trafficked areas. At the same time, the floor offers significantly more standing and walking comfort. People therefore benefit from less back and joint pain, and studies show reduction in fatigue symptoms,” adds Oswald. norament926 castello can be installed in the classic way, with wet adhesive, but is also available as an nTx version for an even faster installation.
In modern architecture, inspiring ideas often arise from authentic, original elements. Today's highly creative workspaces tend to prefer referencing the industrial past, true to the minimalist motto “less is more”. norament 926 kivo harmonizes with this modern, classical atmosphere. Its irregular grain design with a slightly structured two-tone surface was inspired by concrete and gives interiors an authentic urban and industrial look.The flooring adapts seamlessly to any mixture of steel, wood and exposed brick and is the ideal flooring to give free play to creative furnishing ideas. The 2.7-millimetre-thick floor is available in eight colours, ranging from warm beige to cool grey-blue tones.
“This new rubber flooring offers many advantages of norament and is at the same time ideally suitable for representative areas,including office spaces, conference rooms and cafeterias. Here, proven nora quality and modern appearance go hand in hand and make it possible to create a fascinating, functional industrial look”, concludes Oswald.
