Altro - Vinyl and LVT
ALTRO Ensemble modular flooring system is, according to the company, delivering on chic style and sound reduction at the four-star Radisson Blu Hotel in Mannheim, Germany. Designers of the contemporary 229 room hotel used Altro Ensemble LVTs to create what’s described as the perfect ambience in the guest rooms, restaurant, corridors and state-of-the-art conference area.
Altro Ensemble modular flooring system is, the company says, the next generation of LVTs. From colour blocking to geometric patterns, with a range of plank and tile sizes and textures, Altro Ensemble reportedly gives design freedom to create what is described as luxurious floors for commercial interior spaces.
With 57 options to mix-and-match, the modular flooring system has natural wood and stone designs and bloc colours too. ‘Altro Ensemble is 2.6mm thick with a 0.55mm wearlayer, 15dB sound reduction qualities and added comfort underfoot, with what’s described by the company as minimal residual indentation and excellent durability,’ says the company.
Claimed to be a truly exceptional material, it combines these features with ‘unique flexibility and is lightweight, making it easy to transport, cut and handle for installation’.
‘We paid particular attention to sound reduction when choosing the flooring,’ explains Raimund Förg, project manager at Diringer & Scheidel.
Designers also reportedly considered comfort and sustainability when making their product choices. Altro Ensemble has the benefits of local sustainably sourced raw materials made to Altro’s exacting manufacturing standards, which are said to ensure what is described as high quality, excellent durability and high-performance characteristics.
In developing the new Altro Ensemble collection, the design team has taken inspiration from the Bauhaus design school’s philosophy of bridging the gap between form and function to engineer products that meet the customers’ biggest challenges, such as the need for cleanability, sustainability and flexibility.
The result, says Altro, is a premium modular flooring system said to offer variety and design freedom to create ‘sophisticated, contemporary and striking designs’.
Altro Ensemble is claimed to be the perfect partner to Altro Whiterock wall designs – a new vision in wall decoration ‘with natural wood, stone and linen options plus stunning metallic designs to give elegance to interior walls’.
