Amorim & Wicanders. Green Building, GreenStars Award Winners!

18 08 2008

We’re so proud…Interior Design magazine has recently chosen Amorim, and our Wicanders brand of naturally unique Cork Oak Flooring to receive it’s inaugural NeoCon GreenStars Award. The award was granted based on “a fantastic sustainable product and message at NeoCon 2008.” At NeoCon, Wicanders was singled out as “the only cork seller to control the entire process from seedling through harvest and manufacture, key to minimizing the product’s environmental footprint.”

Interior Design judges also praised our Xtreme WRT (wear resistant technology) finish which is considered to be the most revolutionary innovation in the flooring market. If you visit our blog often you know that our WRT finish contains tiny, ceramic, micro-beads that protect our Cork Oak floors against abrasion, scratches, UV rays, dirt, insects, and more, while guaranteeing all the natural qualities of our eco-friendly floors are preserved, letting their beauty shine through.

Mark Strauss, Publisher & Vice President of Interior Design magazine, writes: “The movement towards sustainability is such an important factor in our industry, and in our world, so we are naturally very excited about this new program and plan to promote it heavily.”

With all the moving, emotionally charged stories about the winning athletes at the Beijing Olympics, we thought this would be a good time to let you know about another one of our awards. Although it’s not a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal, it’s still a treasure to us.

Thank you, Interior Design magazine. We’re honored.

Team Wicanders
