Designed by Studio Italo Rota in Milan, the Wine Pavilion is a journey through emotion and the five senses, through history and the world and future of wine. Madras® Flooring glass contributed to the grandiosity of this truly exceptional project (it’s the first time in the history of the Universal Expositions that a whole pavilion has been dedicated to wine). The product made it possible to create spectacularly luminous flooring over a wide area of the Pavilion’s ground floor whilst guaranteeing safety for the public with its formidable performance characteristics: anti-slip, resistance to abrasion and ease of maintenance. Pixel Flooring, the model chosen by the architects, is in fact certified not only in terms of dynamic friction but also surface abrasion, delivering excellent results. This installation features the extraclear version of the glass, laminated with milk-white PVB and back-lit to cover the underlying floor and illuminate the scene to great effect. Madras® glass thus provided a fitting stage for thousands of visitors.
