The demand for acting in an ecological and sustainably consistent manner is continuously growing: in architecture and interior design, too. Vorwerk has launched a new generation of elastic design flooring named “RE/COVER green”. Nearly 90% is manufactured from renewable raw materials. As a result, Vorwerk is attending to the growing demand for floor coverings that withstand the heavy-duty workloads in areas such as offices, retailing, healthcare, hotels, gastronomy or public-access buildings. Flooring that is environmentally friendly and requires little maintenance, and at the same time enables creative and aesthetically sophisticated solutions.
is made of high-grade ecological elastomers. The pioneering innovation thereby: petrochemical polyols are replaced by organic polyols extracted from castor or rapeseed oil. The resulting organic elastomer does not signify any loss of quality whatsoever. To the contrary: It is particularly easy to care for, durable, odour-free, installation-friendly, low on emissions, recyclable and complies with the European Union REACH Regulation. From the use of renewable energies during production to workmanship, processing and installation, all the way to recycling, “RE/COVER green” fulfils all ecological specifications.
In addition, the collection is completely “Made in Germany”. This way Vorwerk is able to optimally develop and safeguard quality at all points during production – from design evolution along with the production and composition of the base materials, then on to manufacturing the engraving on the embossing roller, all the way to printing and coating the ecological design flooring.

RE/COVER green is available in a width of 2 metres from the roll in 30 different styles containing multifaceted colours and decors inspired equally by nature and the digital world.
Hadi Teherani, the internationally renowned bureau for architecture and design, developed the RE/COVER green collection. Its design is finely attuned to the particular design-related standards at offices, shops and hotels, in gastronomy and healthcare, as well as at buildings with public access.
Due to a refined irregular dot structure on the surface of the plain-hued articles, they exhibit a discreet sparkling effect inspired by a water surface in motion. As a result, RE/COVER green in plain hues has a particularly lively appearance. By slightly reflecting the surroundings they fit in gently with the respective space.
Re/Cover green Parts
The plank collection “PARTS” consistently sets forth the ecological and design-oriented approach displayed in RE/COVER green.
“PARTS” is available in three different sizes,
20 x 120 cm
40 x 60 cm
50 x 100 cm
which allows different plank formats to be combined:
The textures interpret materials from nature and the environment in different degrees of abstraction. A structured surface overlays the respective decors and lends the product a home-like character due to its naturalness and depth.
