Linoleum, a different dimension

From floor to table top to... lamp. Forbo shows the possibilities with flat and flexible linoleum in an exhibition during Dutch Design Week (DDW) Eindhoven. New and historical designs with Furniture Linoleum and Bulletin Board will surprise everyone from 21 to 29 October 2017 at design expo in 'De Kazerne'.

The oldest design that is included in the exhibition comes from the Finnish designer Alvar Aalto, a linoleum fan from the very first start. His stool, the Stool E60, was already lined with linoleum in 1933. More exotic are applications that show how the material can be bent to 3D products, such as the desk accessories made by Daphna Laurens or the bench designed by Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters. In three spaces of the design platform De Kazerne in Eindhoven, visitors can be inspired by thirty very different applications of Furniture Linoleum and Bulletin Board.
