Lancaster, Pa.—Four Armstrong Flooring products were awarded the Good Design 2020 Award: MedinPure PVC-free sheet with Diamond 10 Technology; Rejuvenations Restore sheet with Diamond 10 Technology; Unbound luxury flooring with Diamond 10 Technology; and Rigid Core Essentials.
Honored for quality design of the highest form, function and aesthetic, these awards recognize products across several flooring types (sheet, LVT and rigid core), as well as on both the commercial and residential sides of the business.
“Design, performance and innovation are essential priorities of the Armstrong Flooring brand and we are honored to be recognized again by Good Design,” said David Thoresen, senior vice president of product innovation at Armstrong Flooring. “To have four products recognized, several of which have won numerous awards this year, is a great reflection of the company’s dedication in these areas.”
In November, the 70th Good Design jury meeting was held online, and the jury selected more than 900 product designs and graphics from more than 48 nations worthy of the Good Design Award for their design excellence.
