Gerflor shortlisted for Mixology Awards 20172017-06-12
Highgate School, London was established in 1565 by a Royal Charter of Queen Elizabeth the First. When the school wanted to carry out a major refurbishment they would specify flooring products that would meet their exacting standards, together with providing modern detail, whilst giving a nod towards the school’s past.
The brief would see a transformation of the schools’ main dining facilities using luxury vinyl in plank form to create a modern and uplifting environment for both dining and other diverse activities taking place in the hall; including music concerts and parents’ evenings. The refurbishment would also see the lobby areas given a ‘flooring facelift’. With over 70 years’ experience Gerflor specialise in education by offering solutions combining technical and stunning design characteristics for any room within the facility.
The design of their products support studying in the best environment possible. The Architect Ed Toovey would settle on 540m2 of Gerflor’s Red Dot award-winning Creation 70 LVT to deliver the look and feel the school would need. In 2016 the Creation 70 range has been awarded the ‘Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016’ by a worldwide panel of 41 experts made up of architects, designers and journalists. With more than 17,000 entries each year The Red Dot Award is one of the best-respected design competitions in the World. The Creation 70 range is 100% recyclable, REACH compliant and is treated with PUR+ surface treatment, providing excellent cleaning characteristics and improved resistance to scratching.
Gerflor are delighted to have been shortlisted for 'Public Sector Interiors, Project of the Year' where the winner will be announed on Thursday 22nd June 2017.
