What kind of flooring for what purpose?
In an age of corona, more and more people are working from home and dynamically transitioning from work to private life and back again. As a result, the interior designs of and flooring used in home environments are becoming more and more significant. Moreover, unused office facilities are going vacant and being used in a variety of new ways, meaning that their interiors need to be adapted accordingly.14 Jul 2020
Designer Werner Aisslinger and his studio developed the interior design for the “Stayery” serviced apartments in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin. The concept includes co-working spaces as well as a communal living area for relaxation and enjoyment. The texture of the floors guides residents and visitors to individual areas that merge into one another. The design was inspired by the urban setting. A gray carpet resembling grained road asphalt leads from the entrance area to the elevators.
The apartments are lined up along a corridor like an ensemble of small houses with their own addresses. The hallway is fitted with a rugged, striped carpet that resembles a pedestrian crosswalk. The carpet here was chosen for both atmospheric and acoustic reasons, with added advantages in terms of heat insulation. Easy-to-clean tiles were laid in the entrance area of the apartments. The shared living room has a parquet floor, providing a domestic atmosphere of well-being. A designer floor in wood-optic look marks the private rooms; for cost reasons and to ensure a higher load-bearing capacity, LVTs were used there. (Tiles from Ce.Si, design floor from Amtico, hallway carpet from ege, parquet flooring from Haro.)
