Perfect Circles Rounds off Museum Refurbishment

01 July 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

High performance sheet flooring was recently used to create a statement design floor in The Armoury Cafe and Kitchen at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridgeshire.

Designed by London based SHH Architecture & Interior Design, this refurbished restaurant area at the UK’s largest aviation museum features a monochrome floor design which was created using 300m of Polyflor’s Classic Mystique PUR vinyl flooring and was installed by flooring contractor Key Floors.

The Smokestone, Nocturne and Quartz shades form concentric circles that echo the Royal Air Force logo and 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 allowed Polyflor’s team to create almost any shape including intricate patterns and logos using vinyl flooring.

“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,” explained Sophie Tipper, Interior Designer at SHH Architecture and Interior Design commented. “Polyflor’s collection ticked the boxes for both performance and design.”
