The client decided on a house with an eclectic interior. A surprising combination of old furniture and antiques with modern, carefully selected finishing materials - especially the timeless Forbo Furniture Linoleum - gave the interior a beautiful and individual effect. The kitchen was installed with prefabricated wooden units of our own design and manufacture. When implementing our buildings and interiors, we use environment-friendly, natural materials, making healthy environments for their users. We also strive for our activities have the least possible impact on the natural environment. A wood-built kitchen, Forbo Furniture Linoleum for cabinet fronts and natural stone have become our logical choices.
The kitchen cabinets are made largely of cross-glued wooden panels. The MDF cabinet fronts are covered with black Forbo furniture linoleum on both sides. To protect the edges, we used oak veneer which combines beautifully with the matte surface of the fronts, resulting in a distinctive character. Together with the worktops of natural stone, the overall effect is a kitchen that radiates elegance and sophistication. We also used Forbo Furniture Linoleum to cover and protect the wall behind the kitchen furniture, and Forbo Marmoleum as a floor finish. Forbo products are available for a full range of applications, which is not without significance for the work of an architect. At the same time they are safe for our employees and future owners of our homes. Not only are they "healthy" materials, but their widely understood exploitation is of great importance. When finishing interiors with only natural materials, we bear in mind that they age well and maintain their functionality and attractiveness for many years.
