Lancaster, Pa.—Armstrong’s Alterna engineered stone has won a 2015 Good Design award. Good Design remains the oldest and the world’s most recognized program for design excellence worldwide. The awards program is organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.

With Alterna’s nature-inspired designs, warmth underfoot and realistic textures, it’s a floor tile that captures the authenticity of nature’s beauty. Armstrong’s exclusive manufacturing technology results in Alterna flooring tiles looking distinctly unique. Alterna floors are manufactured in Kankakee, Ill., and feature more than 90% domestic content.

For the 2015 award, the Museum received submissions from several thousand of the world’s leading manufacturers and industrial and graphic design firms from around the world, representing the most important and critical mass of influential corporations worldwide in the design industry from over 47 countries. Juries met in New York and selected the product designs and graphics worthy of the Good Design Award for their Design Excellence. All awards and winners are posted on the Museum’s website at www.chi-athenaeum.org and also are published in the Good Design Yearbook for 2014-2015.
