floor description:

We are still so happy with this fantastic jointless floor. It was professionally installed, very easy to maintain and extremely elegant. I am always happy that we managed to do that back then, I think it was in 2019. Corinna Steimel, Director of the Böblingen Municipal Gallery


The BARiT MASTERTERRAZZO is a seamless floor covering that has all been tested in terms of emission behaviour according to AgBB and is low-emission. In combination with the BARIT manufacturer and supplier declaration, the harmonised standard in accordance with DIN EN 13813 for use in recreation rooms with proof of emission behaviour in accordance with the workplace directive ASR1.5/1.2 through the AgBB tests as well as the external and factory inspections. The manufacturer and supplier declaration therefore replaces the no longer authorised abZ.

project description:

The Municipal Gallery of the Town Böblingen has been housed in a very traditional place, both in the glass extension and in the medieval old building, since its foundation in 1987 as an art museum of the town of Böblingen.

This unique building complex in Böblingen's old town combines historical flair with post-modern architecture from the 1980s.

The new building was designed by the internationally renowned architecture firm "Atelier Lohrer" in Stuttgart, for which it was honoured with the "Recognition of the German Architecture Prize".

The permanent exhibition presents outstanding paintings and sculptures that reflect the broad spectrum of mutual artistic trends that crystallised in south-west Germany during the turmoil of the pre-, inter- and post-war years. The exhibition thus provides a comprehensive overview of the diverse juxtaposition of figurative, neo-figurative, expressive-realist and lyrical-abstract pictorial inventions. It also sheds light on the individual fates of the artists of the so-called "Lost Generation" behind their artistic work.

To give these different styles a neutral ground, the Städtische Galerie chose a fine monochrome MASTERTERRAZZO by BARiT. It is not the floor that should have an effect, but architecture and art.
