Tessera Struktur 1 carpet tile by Forbo Flooring Systems
Dezeen promotion: UK flooring manufacturer Forbo Flooring Systems has said it wants to capture the “clean, simple style” of Scandinavian design in its latest carpet tile offering.
Called Tessera Struktur 1 the flat weave design has a durable microtuft construction which is ideal for high traffic areas.
the business said the carpet tile, designed and manufactured in the UK, creates a “balanced vibe” inside and is inspired by what it says is a growing trend for Scandinavian design.
“The simple, clean style of Scandinavian design continues to influence architecture and interior design, and it’s a trend that is growing in popularity because of the calming spaces it is able to create,” Chris said. Rand, Global Brand Director. Marketing Manager.
“Every now and then we have to pause, think, and take a moment to focus on what’s really important – and that’s the design idea behind Struktur 1.”
The subtly textured design is available in 18 colourways, including neutral tones such as grays and beiges, as well as muted shades of green, yellow, orange and red to suit a variety of spaces.
Microtuft construction is a new offering from the company and makes the design suitable for high traffic interiors, such as offices, higher education, retail, leisure and hospitality areas. The microtuft manufacturing process means that the yarns can be fused directly to the carpet tile backing, using about 50% less yarn than a typical carpet tile.

“Thanks to its microtuft construction, the carpet tile has a unique look and feel, where sometimes less is more,” explained Rand. “With an acoustic value of 17 dB for reduced noise transmission, Tessera Struktur 1 can help architects and interior designers realize their vision of creating sophisticated and minimalist environments.”
“Its simplicity also makes it easy to combine with other furniture and the carpet tile can even be installed alongside our Allura Flex LVT, using the same tackifier, and Allura Ease adhesive-free vinyl tiles without the need. of transition strips, to create integrated flooring patterns. “
All Tessera tufted carpet tiles are made from 100% renewable energy and Struktur 1 contains 65% recycled content by weight. It also meets the Ska rating criteria – an environmental assessment method – for resilient flooring in offices, retail and higher education programs.
