Culture Bubbles

Built in 1987 the library Boris Vian is located in a cultural and administrative center of relief, in the heart of the central area of ​​Tremblay-en-France (ZUP, created in the 1960s) occupying an important place on cultural events throughout the Département. Over 20 years later it has now been turned into a media library becoming larger and nicer. The building now covers about 2,000 square meters and offers almost 65,000 books, thousands of CDs and DVDs, and several areas of reading and listening including a conference room that can host 50 people. In a deteriorated and monotonous context which was left almost abandoned in recent years by the residents, the renovation of the outdoor areas, the internal restructuring and the use of colors allowed to give a new life and an outstanding brightness to the center. The “father” of all studded rubber flooring found a place in this lively setting: BS Classic is in fact the modern evolution of Pirelli’s original studs and its legitimate heir. Very popular for its graphic visual impact, BS Classic has been widely used to give new environments a greater level of graphical definition. Among the 20 stylish colours of our range, the architects chose the bright and warm yellow Y507 and the black N004. While the first fits extraordinarily well with the wider spaces,adding brightness to the sunlit rooms, the second gave an elegant touch in the offices and a “darkroom” effect to the video viewing areas. Artigo studded rubber flooring provide a good performance to all the functional aspects of high traffic environments: from the ease of installation to the reliability over time, through to sound reduction, slip resistance and a low maintenance costs. Photos by Michel Denancé.
