As an increasing number of fitness facilities and wellness centres see a need to create their own ‘look and style’ Gerflor delivers a set of trends and designs ready to meet the imagination and creativity of architects, designers, gym owners and operators. For inspiration Gerflor has created three amazing themes which feature prominently at Elevate. Drawing inspiration from different textures including natural materials such as wood, stone, marble and concrete, together with graphics and architectural forms, a series of themes and colours are identified.

Industrial- Inspired by industrial architectural buildings, with materials that have oxidised and where rust has formulated. It’s becoming a popular choice for contemporary living and working spaces and now is also becoming a popular setting for fitness facilities.
Pop Art- It’s all about colour…vivid, bold colours. Think wow, think sixties and Pop Art, think Andy Warhol. Pink is everywhere, pink is cool.
Natural- Inspired by nature, the phenomena of the physical world collectively including plants, the landscape, other features and products of the earth.

These colour-ways and texture effects are integrated with Gerflor’s pioneering, flooring innovations making them perfect for today’s uber-designed gyms and wellness centres. Gerflor is the perfect design-led flooring partner in the fitness and wellness world thanks to its myriad of design and colour options aimed at delivering sports flooring that not only looks stunning but also delivers the performance levels that gym owners and wellness centre operators now expect.

Come and meet the Gerflor team on stand S40, 8-9 May 2019 at the Excel Centre London.
