Interior designer Ashley Hicks has had his unique design ‘Specimen Marble’ digitally printed onto Forbo Flooring Systems’ Flotex flocked floor covering for his new studio in Oxfordshire.

Mr Hicks said: “When I saw the Flotex sample, I knew the construction of the material would provide the ideal finish to my ‘Specimen Marble’ design, as well as being hard-wearing and easy to clean – especially when some of my projects can get quite messy.”

Forbo’s Flotex is a unique product which offers the hard-wearing durability of a resilient floor covering, while delivering the comfort of a textile finish. It also offers exceptional printability.

Additionally, Forbo’s new digital printer, combined with Flotex’s optimum printing surface of more than 70 million fibres per m2, achieves vibrant, intricate designs. Specifiers can choose from more than 500 existing designs and colourways available or have their own bespoke designs printed on orders of 60m2or more.

Flotex holds the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval and is phthalate free.
