Elegant design – pure colour

The new norament 926 satura rubber floor covering satisfies the wishes of architects and building users

Weinheim, April, 2013 – Nothing sets the tone for a room’s atmosphere as much as its colours: they awaken emotions, create or intensify moods, stimulate or have a calming effect. With its high degree of colour saturation, the new norament 926 satura rubber floor covering from nora systems helps planners to realise individual room concepts. The impression of pure, clear colour and the two worlds of colour – neutral architectural colours together with chromatic accentuating colours – open up a huge number of creative possibilities for every desired spatial effect.

Architects from all over the world were involved in the development of norament 926 satura. “Our aim was to create a product that offers made-to-measure solutions to satisfy the demands of our customers and to present them with a whole spectrum of new creative possibilities,” explains Andreas Müller, managing director at nora systems. “Consequently, before we started we asked our customers to tell us which floor covering colours would help them to realise their projects.”

Hanka Griebenow from the architects’ agency Hans Hartmann and Dieter Juranek (HJP) from Ludwigsburg appreciate the broad colour spectrum of norament 926 satura (the name is derived from the term ‘colour saturation’): “We really like the neutral colour range. Complemented by the strong colours, there is a large choice on offer.” Swiss architect Andreas Hertig from BFB Architekten AG in Zurich is thrilled with the neutral colours: “They are ideal for installations in hospital buildings. Let’s have more of them!” The renowned British industrial designer Daniel Weil from London-based agency Pentagram praises not only the colours, but also the light reflection of the rubber floor covering: “The new floor covering creates unique light reflections with its saturated colours and discreet hammerblow surface. norament 926 satura brings colour into every room and the brighter shades in particular create an open, vibrant atmosphere, while the dark tones look especially elegant.”

Elegant tone-in-tone design

The subtle vitality of the surface of norament 926 satura arises from the tone-in-tone play of colours of the granules, which only minimally stand out from the base colour due to their brightness. Another attractive design element is the hammerblow surface with its handcrafted look. The soft, wave-like pattern is perceived as a flowing, yet calm structure. The laid area as a whole lends norament 926 satura a monochromatic look, creating a high-quality, elegant appearance and giving the room visual depth. norament 926 satura thus ideally complements its successful sister product norament 926 grano, which strikingly makes its mark with richly contrasting granules.

norament 926 satura is available in a range of 32 colours. The spectrum of the 16 neutral architectural colours ranges from a warm beige through to cool shades of grey. They harmoniously fit into the room and enter into a timelessly elegant and unobtrusive union with other building elements like the wall or ceiling. The 16 chromatic accentuating colours have been conceived as colour pairs and thus offer a few first inspirations for vibrant, colour-oriented interior design. All the colour shades in the range are mutually harmonised and can be perfectly combined both among themselves, as well as with the 32 standard colours available with norament 926 grano.

Broad spectrum of applications

The universal all-rounder norament 926 satura demonstrates its strengths in all areas of application. From the healthcare sector through to education, industry or the public construction segment: Rooms of any size can be individually designed with discreet or strong colours using norament 926 satura. As with all nora rubber floor coverings, this new product has an uncoated and extremely hard-wearing surface that can be easily cleaned, so that its premium quality appearance remains preserved even when exposed to extreme conditions.

To allow the creation of cohesive room concepts, norament 926 satura is also available as stairtreads in three different widths and twelve colours. Needless to say, the new product is part of the certified floor covering system, nora system blue, which combines nora’s low emission rubber floor coverings with low emission installation materials. Specially trained installers offer additional assurance. That is how nora systems assures the best quality for indoor air hygiene and promotes the development of building concepts for healthy living.
