Only a week left to register for Dezeen and Forbo Flooring's Marmoleum Design Challenge webinar

Planning on entering Dezeen and Forbo Flooring’s Marmoleum Design Challenge? There is just under a week left to register for a webinar about how to use the Marmoleum material. Register before 21 March to join.

The webinar, which takes place on 28 March, will see Forbo Flooring’s design team lead a deep dive into its Marmoleum material, followed by a live question-and-answer session, to help Marmoleum Design Challenge contestants with their design.

The Marmoleum Design Challenge is a global contest that challenges architects and designers to create an interior space that promotes wellbeing using Forbo Flooring’s Marmoleum material.

To enter the competition, participants must register on the Forbo Flooring website. Once registered, they will receive an invitation to a webinar in which the company’s design team will lead a product deep dive and live Q&A session.

Entrants will also receive free Marmoleum samples and a brochure to inform their design once they register.

The design challenge tasks entrants with designing a 10-square-metre space that can provide respite and enhance wellbeing in environments such as schools, offices or hospitals – anywhere where you can play, learn, work or heal.

Designs must utilise Marmoleum as flooring and the design should be realistic and feasible to construct.

Marmoleum is a linoleum flooring product by Forbo Flooring that is crafted from natural raw materials, including linseed oil extracted from flax plant seeds, wood flour, limestone, pine resin and jute plant fibres.

As a result, it is climate-positive from cradle to gate, without any offsetting. This means that the carbon dioxide absorbed by the biobased materials used to make the product is greater than the carbon dioxide emitted by manufacturing it.

Design challenge closes on 30 April

The Marmoleum Design Challenge closes for entries at 23:59 CEST (Central European Summer Time) on 30 April 2024.

A shortlist of the best ideas will be published on Dezeen in May, with the winner announced and published on Dezeen in June 2024.

The winner will receive a cash prize of £5,000 and have their design realised in collaboration with Forbo and installed in the Forbo Flooring showroom in the Netherlands.

The winner (one representative only) will also be invited to attend a launch event in the Netherlands.
