IAFD x Forbo

For this collaboration between IA & FD and Forbo, the company's linoleum archive served as a source of inspiration for our third-year students from the bachelor department of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design (IA & FD). The students were given access to and were invited to explore this treasure room of approx. 50m2 packed with information about the linoleum material and its rich history.

About the project

The students worked on two consecutive assignments. The first one reflecting and interpreting history (Linochambres) and the second one looking towards the future (Ex-tract-trude-pose). The variety of experiments that were materialized through products and artworks was presented in the school during the Open Day of the KABK in The Hague in January 2019.

Linochambres

Students researched the social aspects and the specific characteristics of the material, the design properties of linoleum as a building material, and speculated its future potential. Seven 1: 1 scale linoleum 'Period Rooms' were realized during the first assignment.

Ex-tract-trude-pose: breathe in, this is the beginning of a linoleum invasion

These rooms served as an inspiration for the development of individual projects in the second part.
