London’s new Design Museum has opened and its first permanent exhibition – ‘Designer Maker User’ – uses HR LAQ from Abet Laminati for its info-walls, displays and graphics.
The exhibition, designed by Studio Myerscough, was revamped earlier this year and has been created within the shell of the original 1960s Grade II listed Commonwealth Institute, well known for its distinctive copper covered, hyperbolic paraboloid roof.
The result is a striking scheme with bright and vivid red, orange and yellow hues to delineate each area and to attract visitors into the space.
Morag Mysercough commented: “We wanted to create something that you could see from the ground floor because the exhibition sits at the top and we wanted to draw people up there.”
The HR LAQ laminate Collection consists of a collection of 28 bold and bright colours, available in both horizontal and vertical grades.
They offer extremely high resistance to scratching, wear and abrasion, making them ideal for this type of application, in which the combination of high performance, robustness and visual appeal are vital.
The Collection is popular with architects, designers and interior designers seeking to realise and decorate bright and vibrant creative projects.
As with all the finishes from Abet Laminati, the range meets or exceeds all European and British performance standards for resistance to wear, heat, moisture, impact and scratching ensuring long life-cycle, minimum maintenance and enduring visual appeal.
