FLOR in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry’s “Smart Home: Green + Wired” Exhibit

We love collaborations, especially when they’re with people or organizations that share some of the same beliefs and philosophies as we do here at FLOR.  Our latest collaboration does just that.  Visitors to Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry Smart Home:  Green + Wired exhibit will be able to experience the latest in sustainable design and living and see FLOR carpet tiles used throughout the house as an eco-friendly flooring solution.

The home, which originally opened in May 2008 and recently reopened to the public on March 19, 2009, was designed by Michelle Kaufmann – widely recognized and respected as a leader in green architecture and design.  The three-story, modular structure has all of the comforts one would expect in a home plus added benefits like energy-efficient electrical and water consumption systems and eco-friendly landscaping and living environments.  We were pretty excited when the museum contacted us to contribute carpet tiles for the home and are proud to be part of an exhibit that highlights how green design can be both beautiful and functional.  That philosophy is certainly something we hold near and dear to our collective hearts at FLOR

If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should.  Don’t worry – you’ve got time.  The Smart Home:  Green + Wired exhibit, sponsored by ComEd, Dominick’s and the Motorola Foundation, runs through January 3, 2010.  Get tickets and more information at the Museum of Science and Industry.
