Dubbed The Parquet, this classical herringbone flooring by Apokalyps Labotek received the Elle Interior Design Award 2011 and a number of other awards. Now, what do you think the flooring is made of?

Nobody would have thought that the material is made from recycled tires. Swedish company Apokalyps Labotek designed the flooring, and recovered and cut the tires to turn them into a modern interior. In Sweden, 4 million tires are disposed of every year, and in the EU, approximately 250 million tires are consumed yearly. 

Apokalyps Labotek is an innovative company working with recycling and sustainable design, making the products not only earth-friendly but also stunning. A little inspiration gives used tires new life through design. Apokalyps Labotek also creates other stylish products from reused materials.
