The Tarkett linoleum plant in Narni, Italy began its production at the end of the 19th century. The plant represents one of the first industries in the region, which shaped the industrial development of Narni and the surrounding area. Tarkett’s LinoFloor is made from 100% natural ingredients at the Narni plant, using the same original recipe since 1898. This has enabled Tarkett’s team to develop an intimate understanding of every natural ingredient and the expertise to adapt manufacturing to the subtle variations in each year’s crop.
This linoleum material offers a timeless design and a robustness that stand the test of time. Tarkett constantly innovates its production processes, developing colors and new striking designs and improving its flooring technical characteristics for specific uses, such as acoustic control, and a new pattern introduction, Tonali, for LinoFloor, which resembles the look of stained concrete. The updated collection of LinoFloor offers a large variety of designs, from traditional to contemporary aesthetics. With 14 new colors and extreme durability for high-traffic areas, LinoFloor’s easy maintenance reduces water and chemical expenses to promote healthy spaces.
LinoFloor is Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver v 3.1 and FloorScore® certified.
The Essentialist Collection is a carefully curated selection of style and performance that embodies timeless, meaningful design. It comes in modular and LVT platforms and is ideal for a variety of healthcare environments such as common areas, lobbies, office spaces, and senior living environments.
The Essentialist Collection reflects the societal movement toward mindfulness and simplification for holistic well-being. At its core, Essentialism is the view that things have essences – the attribute, or set of attributes, that make an object or substance what it fundamentally is. An essence characterizes a permanent, unalterable and eternal substance or form. The Essentialist Collection was created out of a pursuit of a floorcovering that is, at its very essence, stripped down to beauty, performance and purpose.
In today’s hectic world, people crave calming, therapeutic spaces that help quiet their minds. Inspired by the principles of essentialism, the collection supports spaces that help us savor moments of joy and restoration, bringing us closer to what really matters: experience, authenticity and community.
Essentialist has been designed for a tailored, yet cohesive experience, where multiple flooring materials connect for better outcomes for people and environmental enhancements. It is both comprehensive and streamlined, to simplify both the design process and the therapeutic nature of the finished space.
The Essentialist Collection offers three patterns, each in a variety of coordinating colorways that provide soothing serenity: Savant, Saveur and Substance. The collection also includes three coordinating LVT designs called Hued, Interlocked and Parisian, part of Tarkett’s Collections Infinies™, a customizable portfolio of digitally printed designs.
It is available with ethos® Modular with Omnicoat Technology™ backing (Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver/ILFI Living Product Challenge Imperative certified) and includes Eco-Ensure™ soil protection technology, a fluorine-free chemistry (Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold Material Health).
