Marmoleum is made from linseed oil, natural rosins, wood flour, pigments and jute, almost none of which can be recognized in the final product, in the opinion of Piet Hein Eek whose roots in wreckage wood stemmed from a belief in recognizable, authentic materials.
So when he learned that Marmoleum contains at least 2% pigments, it became his point of departure. He mixed the most common pigments –black, white, red, green, yellow and blue- in constant ratio’s to realize 30 balanced color combinations. He selected the black version and ensured that a hint of the other colors shimmered through the dark. This natural look is further enhanced by an innovative cloudy structure.
