Red Dot
noraplan unita takes its inspiration from the contrasting properties of two natural materials: stone and rubber – hard and soft, glittering and matt. Small chips of real granite dispersed in traditional rubber make for an unusual combination. All the facets of the chips of granite reflect light. This transforms a floor into a vibrant architectural component. The basic material, rubber, possesses all the proven functional properties that characterise nora: high resilience, pleasant to walk and stand on, footfall-sound absorbent, dimensionally stable and environmentally friendly. noraplan unita is available in two designs: an understated version with dispersed granite chips and a version with a stronger glitter effect when a special emphasis is required.

Statement by the jury

»The noteworthy combination of elastic rubber and fine granite chips together with its unembellished appearance turns noraplan unita into an accentuated element for the widest range of architectural styles.«
