Honored for quality design of the highest form, function and aesthetic, these awards recognize products across multiple flooring types (LVT and rigid core), as well as on both the commercial and residential sides of the business. Each product features Diamond 10 Technology, which offers category-leading scratch, stain and scuff resistance, according to the company.

“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 investment into our products and is a testament to our outstanding design team.”

Founded in Chicago in 1950 by Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames, Good Design remains the oldest and the world’s most recognized program for design excellence worldwide.

The collection includes two distinct, yet compatible designs. System Gradient features a subtle ombre effect across a 6 x 36 plank in a soft color palette. Also available in a 6 x 36 plank, Static offers consistent saturation of color in a variety of neutrals and bright pops of color. The durability provided by the wear layer and Diamond 10 Technology extend the life of the product while the thinner structure results in a product with a 31% lower carbon footprint over our 3.2 mm glue-down LVT.
