Fjord by Fiandre Architectural Surfaces is the star of the new Furla Progetto Italia headquarters
The Fjord collection, inspired by the enigmatic charm of the lands of the North, was chosen for the new Furla headquarters in the Chianti hills
For Furla’s new production and design headquarters in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, in the province of Florence, which won the prestigious Architizer a+awards 2022 in the mixed use category, the firm GEZA Architettura chose to use Fiandre Architectural Surfaces Fjord porcelain stoneware for the glued and raised flooring in the office and production areas.
Fiandre ceramic materials and the architectural style of Furla Progetto Italia, set in a context that respects and protects the environmental heritage, share the same philosophy: creating well-being through technologically advanced materials made from natural raw materials in zero-emissions production sites.
The Fiandre Fjord collection - laid by Granitech using traditional gluing techniques as well as on a 30 mm calcium sulphate raised floor - is a range of large format porcelain stoneware inspired by the enigmatic charm of the lands of the North, where the thin ton-sur-ton grains enhance the different colour shades, reminiscent of the pale stone surfaces created by time and the primordial forces of nature. Extremely versatile material for both outdoor and indoor use, it is available in different sizes and colours, and is an excellent non-slip surface with static or dynamic friction coefficient.
Fiandre Fjord MAXIMUM surfaces are made using at least 40% of recycled material and meet the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) requirements.
The floors were applied by Technoriunite.
The raised flooring system was installed by Granitech
