Planium srl have competed for the prestigious Museo del Novecento of Firenze with the realization of flooring, coatings and various custom pieces. For these last ones a feasibility study prior to production was developed.
The Calamine steel characterizes and creates a continuum in the exhibition itinerary and offers a dark "deep" background, on which the pieces of the important collection of the museum stand out.
The floors are made with Planium PL01 Invisible, a reversible system with a millimeter thickness, with which also large plates, such as those installed on this occasion (1,200x600 mm), can be easily placed. The system is provided with angular hooks for locking the tiles and a recycled rubber underlayment, that attenuates the noise of footsteps, so useful especially in high transit rooms such as these.
Are made engineering and construction special parts, such as extra size plates (mm 1,200x2,120), exhibition panels, totems and wall coverings. Some details, including the plates for the "sound showers" (audio devices that allow the visitor to stop to a certain point to listen to information and historical accounts), were worked superficially with laser technology, according to the drawing sent by the client.
