From today, designing for areas that need to look good for the long term is even easier with Altro floors.We know that trends and needs change; it’s something we look at constantly to ensure our floors, walls and doors stay fit for purpose, supporting those who use them in terms of looks and performance.

From idea to installation, an Altro design story

A short distance from the ‘school of building’, the home of the Bauhaus modernist art movement, you can find our German manufacturing site and offices. Given that Bauhaus students questioned the traditional and worked to the view that form and function are equally important, it would be difficult to create and develop products in the shadow of the Bauhaus without its influence at the heart of our work.

Guest blog by Helen O’Reilly, Associate, Bond Bryan
