London’s new Design Museum has opened. It 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 Museum’s first permanent exhibition – ‘Designer Maker User’ – designed by Studio Myerscough, was revamped earlier this year and uses HR LAQ from Abet Laminati for its info-walls, displays and graphics. The result is a bold 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 comprises a collection of 28 bold and bright colours available in both horizontal and vertical grades. They offer very high resistance to scratching, wear and abrasion, making them perfect for this type of application where the combination of high performance, robustness and visual appeal are paramount.
The Collection is popular with architects, designers and interior designers looking 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.
