Last chance to enter Dezeen and Forbo Flooring's Marmoleum Design Challenge

Dezeen and Forbo Flooring’s Marmoleum Design Challenge closes for entries at midnight Amsterdam time tonight. Enter before the deadline for the chance to win up to £5,000.

The competition invites architects and designers to create an interior space that promotes well-being using the brand’s Marmoleum material.

The space should be designed for installation in interior environments such as hospitals, schools or offices – anywhere you can play, learn, work or heal. However, residential applications are excluded.

Entrants are tasked with designing a 10-square-metre space that can enhance well-being by providing a space for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Designs must use Forbo Flooring’s Marmoleum material as flooring, and the design should be realistic and feasible to construct.

Competition entries will be judged by an expert panel comprising Dezeen editors and design professionals, including interior designer Ilse Crawford, HOK senior interior designer Christine Vandover and Studiopepe co-founders Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto.

The panel will be joined by Dezeen editorial director Max Fraser and Forbo Flooring linoleum senior designer Tamar Gaylord.

The judges will be looking for innovative but buildable ideas for a well-being space.

Prize money up for grabs

A shortlist of the best ideas will be published on Dezeen in May, with the winner announced and published on Dezeen in June 2024.

The winner will receive a cash prize of £5,000 and have their design realised in collaboration with Forbo and installed in the Forbo Flooring showroom in the Netherlands.

The winner (one representative only) will also be invited to attend a launch event in the Netherlands.

How to enter

To enter the competition, participants must register on the Forbo Flooring website.

The Marmoleum Design Challenge closes for entries at 23:59 Amsterdam time on 30 April 2024.

Entrants must produce a mood board of materials used and three-dimensional visualisations depicting their concepts, along with supporting text to describe their idea explaining how it meets the brief.
