To take advantage of the parent brand's heritage in laminated flooring, the design used the product to “lead” customers into the other new products. A brand new “Ribbon” system of flooring sample presentation is created which brings customers from one zone to another.

With the “Ribbon” system, customers are led from one zone to another, allowing them to move in a structured yet open manner, guiding them , yet not restricting them.
