For this year's Dutch Design Week, floor covering manufacturer Forbo teamed up with Dutch designer Antoine Peters for the creation of a unique patterned floorcoverings, as well as the 'Floor-Dress.'

Forbo's 'Flotex' is a standout flooring material that boasts the soft feel of a carpet, yet the sturdiness of a hard floor surface, making it exceptionally easy to clean and hygienic. At a first glance, the patterned Flotex floorcoverings that was designed by Peters looks like static from a TV screen, but upon closer inspection, it is revealed to be a series of black and white arrows that encourage those who step on it to consider their own movement.

The standout Floor-Dress was designed to look just like the flooring pattern and as described as part of the collaboration, "secretly the textile of the dress changes in to the Flotex floor."
