Te Papa Museum, Wellington - Custom Design Hard Flooring

New National Museum
Product Information
Innovative use of composite vinyl tiles were key to creating an exciting atmosphere. In the entrance foyer, a variety of products were used in the design of two spectacular globe motifs. From the foyer, a promenade leads visitors around the exhibits with flooring effects - incl. various Meteor beaten metal finishes and slate products - which change to reflect the character of each exhibit.
