Floor is more than just a surface that serves the other parts of a building as foundation. Recently the classics of floor coverings like carpet, wood, tile or linoleum have experienced a renaissance: modern techniques, new colors, patterns and ornaments are applied and various materials are combined. In this volume about 50 designers and manufacturers are introduced with their outstanding projects and innovative designs. The projects range from carpets for the interior to the paving of broad plazas. This books shows that the design of a floor is a demanding task which influences distinctively the effect a room or place creates. An index with the contact information of the designers is enclosed.
