Zinoro Showroom, Beijing, China

Sustainable Floor Sparkles for BMW-Brilliance

BMW Brilliance – the German-Sino joint venture – has cut the ribbon on the first brand showroom for its pioneering electric vehicle, the ZINORO 1E, located in downtown Beijing.

The new showroom is expected to serve as a promotional centre for the brand, with various events and seminars in the pipeline to promote knowledge on alternative energy and the concept of green mobility.

Close to 200 square metres of Flowcrete Asia’s sparkling terrazzo flooring material, Mondéco Crystal, was selected by the project architect for installation across the entire showroom in three contrasting bands of colour.

The installation of the material represented a challenging undertaking for both Flowcrete Asia and the company’s approved application team. A three-week turnaround in which to install the terrazzo material posed difficulties combined with plummeting temperatures as low as -10 degrees centigrade.

Mondéco Crystal is a highly decorative system and a popular choice for retail clients looking to impress visitors underfoot with recent installations at both Alexander McQueen’s and Emilio Pucci’s flagship stores in China. The system contains a decorative mix of crushed mirror, clear glass chippings and mother of pearl, which once diamond-ground to a smooth surface glistens underfoot.

The system offers clients a high environmental profile too, containing a high percentage of recycled and natural materials, an energy-saving, easily maintained surface and an impressive lifespan way in excess of 20 years when properly cared for.
