Healthcare: colourful, practical PVC flooring for a children’s hospital
A leading designer opted for Tarkett’s highly durable vinyl flooring for a children’s hospital in Paris due to its hygienic and high wear qualities, together with the dynamic array of colours available to create a bright, uplifting environment.
In a busy hospital like Necker’s Children Hospital in Paris, building owner APHP Hôpital Necker and designer, Frédérique F. Thomas, needed to know that the flooring they chose would be affordable, reliable and easy to clean. The solution combined both intelligent design and performance. Tarkett selected PVC-based Fusion Lines décor, Excellence collection due its high quality, optimised materials, and the ease with which it could be cleaned and maintained – highly important in helping to prevent infection. Frédérique responded to the client’s need to create a warm atmosphere by producing a dynamic, colourful design. He selected three bright, complementary colours – magenta, petrol and saffron – weaving them together into a dynamic, continuous, interconnecting floor pattern that helps children feel part of a community, and creates a bright, uplifting environment for children and parents alike.
