Designed and manufactured by Tarkett North America Holdings, LinoFloor xf2 and LinoWall xf2 are both carbon-negative from “cradle to gate,” including raw material extraction, transport, and linoleum production, resulting in the category’s smallest environmental footprint throughout its lifecycle.
For its sustainable design that doesn’t compromise on aesthetics, LinoFloor xf2 and LinoWall xf2 has recently been awarded a 2023 Green Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
The collection has been made with the same natural, renewable materials in Tarkett’s Narni, Italy facility since 1898: linseed oil, pine rosin, wood and cork flour, and jute.
Tarkett’s Narni facility operates with 100% renewable electricity, a 100% closed-loop water system, 34% self-generated energy, 0% production waste to landfill, and a 60% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions since 2010.
Tarkett’s Lino collection reflects the natural elements that inspire it, with a broad palette of subtle shades and patterns, ideal for coordinating floors, walls and even furniture.
Using texture and color, Tarkett Lino can define spaces, highlight architectural details and lend interior surfaces, both straight and curved, a sense of harmony.
The LinoFloor xf2 collection is now available in five patterns and 106 colorways, including the Originale series’ expanded offering of 16 colors made from all-natural dyes.
Made entirely of natural raw materials and enriched by more than a century of heritage, the collection is a modern solution to the challenges of contemporary interior design.
In addition to its use of healthy materials, LinoFloor and LinoWall include Tarkett’s proprietary xf2 protection with a matte finish, which delivers superior resistance to stains, abrasions and chemicals, as well as durability under heavy traffic and rolling loads.
Further simplifying daily maintenance, Tarkett’s Lino surfaces never have to be refinished.
Ideal for healthcare, education and hospitality spaces, LinoWall xf2 protects walls from daily wear and tear and helps soften acoustics for overall comfort.
The material offers natural antibacterial properties and is now available in an expanded palette of 10 colors that coordinate easily with the LinoFloor collection.
2.5mm Tarkett Lino range delivers the lowest carbon footprint in its category throughout its lifecycle.
It is a bio-based product, made from natural and renewable ingredients, and contains recycled materials.
The collection is also part of our ReStart® take-back and recycling program. Furthermore, Tarkett Lino is sustainably produced at our Narni plant in Italy, where we work continuously to reduce our environmental footprint.
It also promotes health and well-being by offering optimal indoor air quality (VOC≤10μg/m3).
Tarkett’s linoleum is Cradle to Cradle Certified® Silver, FloorScore certified, and meets Health Care without Harm Silver Level certification requirements.
