SOLON, OHIO, September 28, 2018 — Tarkett, a worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, launches Organics rubber flooring created by Johnsonite. With subtle color variations and more random patterning, this large-scale, free-flowing aesthetic lends an open, organic feel and updated appearance to any space with all the strength and comfort of traditional rubber flooring.
Organics’ designs allude to natural environments through color and material. While rubber is often reserved as a safe and comfortable solution for education and healthcare spaces, this stylish design is ready to greet guests and customers in the front of the house, from lobbies to conference rooms.
