High performance sheet flooring from vinyl flooring specialists Polyflor was recently used to create a statement design floor in The Armoury Café and Kitchen at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridgeshire.
Designed by London based SHH Architecture & Interior Design, this refurbished restaurant area at Britain’s largest aviation museum features a monochrome floor design which was created using 300m² of Polyflor’s Classic Mystique PUR vinyl flooring. Installed by flooring contractors Key Floors, the Smokestone, Nocturne and Quartz shades form concentric circles that echo the Royal Air Force logo.
The flooring design was produced with help from Polyflor’s in-house Design Service team who used waterjet cutting technology to create perfect circles which were pieced together on-site. The precision of waterjet allows Polyflor’s team to create virtually any shape, including intricate patterns and logos using vinyl flooring.
Sophie Tipper, Interior Designer at SHH Architecture and Interior Design commented, “We chose Classic Mystique flooring for this project as the client needed a durable product that was easy to maintain but could be used to create a bold, eye-catching pattern. Polyflor’s collection ticked the boxes for both performance and design.”
The 16 shades available in this Classic Mystique PUR range have a tonal non-directional appearance with a duotone chip decoration and marbleised tonal highlight chips. The hardwearing Classic Mystique range is enhanced with PUR, Polyflor’s exclusive and robust polyurethane reinforcement which is cross linked and UV cured to provide superior cleaning benefits which is a practical benefit for busy leisure and restaurant environments.
The Classic Mystique PUR collection contains recycled content, is 100% recyclable through the Recofloor vinyl take back scheme and has been individually certificated with a BRE Global A+ rating for major use areas. Product samples can be ordered free of charge on the Polyflor website or by calling the Polyflor Samples Direct Hotline on 0161 767 2551.
