Armstrong Flooring has announced that two of its products – Vivero luxury flooring with patent-pending Diamond 10 technology and Performance Plus hardwood – were awarded the prestigious Good Design 2016 award. The award emphasizes quality design of the highest form, function and aesthetic.

The Good Design award is conferred annually by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, together with The European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. The Museum received several thousand entries in 2016 from companies in over 55 countries. This year marked the most significant year for the awards, with the world’s critical mass of Fortune 500 companies and the world’s foremost design firms participating.

“Design, performance and innovation have been at the core of the Armstrong Flooring brand for well over 150 years,” said Ebeth Pitman, director-brand marketing. “We are honored to be recognized with an award as prestigious as Good Design for our commitment to superior product design. Our goal is to be a leader in innovation and design and to continuously exceed our customers’ expectations today and in the future.”

The company’s newest innovation, Vivero luxury flooring, features patent-pending Diamond 10 technology. With 33 colors in four different looks, including Rustic, Traditional, Exotic and Stone, the new collection captures nature’s artistry and the true-to-life warmth and texture of hardwood and stone. By infusing the surface with cultured diamond particles – one of the hardest substances on the planet – Vivero with Diamond 10 harnesses its strength with twice the protection against dents, scratches, scuffs and staining for an easy-to-clean, lifelong finish. Its IntegriLock system, the first 5G locking system of its kind in luxury flooring, offers a quick, glue-free installation.
