New designs, new shades: new inspiration from Altro

21 April 2021


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. With that in mind, Altro Operetta, Altro Orchestra and Altro Serenade have new natural shades in design options that borrow the visual benefits of carpet, stone and tile, without the associated hygiene issues.

To choose the new looks, we’ve worked closely with customers and industry experts to hear latest trends and challenges. This collaborative way of working has resulted in new weave-style and terrazzo patterns. Drawing from water, rocks, foliage and weather, we have a new palette of greens, blues, greys and earthy tones, each discussed and honed with these customers and partners. Find out more about the design story for the new looks here.

Launched four years ago, Altro Operetta, Altro Orchestra and Altro Serenade have been installed in multiple application areas across the globe. These floors offer different levels of impact sound reduction and comfort underfoot and share a number of shades and designs, so you can have the technical performance you need, where you need it.

Altro Operetta - 2mm thick with 4dB sound reduction.

Altro Orchestra – 2.85mm thick with 15dB sound reduction and comfort underfoot.

Altro Serenade – 3.9mm thick with 19dB acoustic performance and comfort underfoot.


And that’s not all that’s new: for the ultimate creative freedom, take a look at Altro Orchestra Custom: upload your own design, or choose from the Altro collection of images and patterns.
