The design floor by BARiT of the type: ELASTIC B 65 combines the highest standards of design, quality and architectural style.
In addition, the ELASTIC B 65 meets high functional requirements such as lightfastness and UV stability. With the design color variety of the covering, the architecture receives a style element to achieve holistic, seamless surfaces.
The elasticity of the floor provides good cushioning properties, which makes standing and walking on this surface particularly pleasant. The design floor is free from VOCs.
During the redesign of the permanent exhibition in the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Elastic B 65 was laid on a hollow floor. The color change between traffic white and graphite black was determined by the architect Hella Rolfes and thus accentuates the corridors, pathways and exhibition areas.
The construction of the Jewisch Museum Berlin (JMB) by Daniel Libeskind made of titanium zinc with subterranean axes, inclined walls and geometric joint patterns on ceilings, walls and floors has long since become a style icon as a museum building. It was up to the first permanent exhibition of the Jewish Museum in Berlin to do justice to the challenging building by Daniel Libeskind through a redesign.
The new permanent exhibition was curated in the lead by Cilly Kugelmann, the scenography was developed by the chezweitz / Hella Rolfes architects working group. The unique architecture by Daniel Libeskind posed a challenge for the new concept. The original elements were to be integrated harmoniously into the updated presentation. The architects chose a traffic white and graphite black cast floor from BARiT for the design of the floor. The graphite black Elastic B 65 leads through the corridors and ramps into the permanent exhibition. The images float on glass steels in the room and affect the visitor. Ramps and pedestals with glass inlays show transparency and reflect again and again, the geometric joints worked into the floor are partly used as windows in the ceiling and walls.
