World-famous artists, couturiers and architects such as Gerhard Richter, Roy Lichtenstein, Karl Lagerfeld and Zaha Hadid have all designed for Vorwerk in the past. This is incentive enough for us today to set standards. To accomplish this we picture the floor covering as a canvas just waiting to be painted. Whether in a timeless or contemporary vein, reserved or progressive. Vorwerk continually offers sophisticated design in any number of styles – styles which never lose their allure even after many years. It comes as no surprise, then, that we win highly coveted awards year after year. This not only pleases us, it is also proof of the high standards we set for ourselves.

It’s exciting aesthetics in excellent quality and durability, as well as its numerous combination options within the structures and nuances, were able to convince the jury of experts.
Design has always played an important role at Vorwerk. While the start of the company was focused on presenting the beauty of old Oriental carpets, Vorwerk carpets were later valued above all for their flat, closed surfaces. Today, Vorwerk continues to prove its ability to redefine itself with continually new collections. Carpets have become an object of desire. Research in design has made them a reflection of a person’s personality. And innovative structures have created completely new stimuli for the senses of sight and touch.
Flower Edition – the first theme-based artist collection
