An important center of Egyptian cultural studies, second only to that of Cairo, the Nuovo Museo Egizio di Torino has been completely restored in a project by the studio Isolarchitetti, including a precious contribution by Ceramiche Keope.
The overall architectural design of the New Egyptian Museum called for the construction of three new levels, that blend in an absolutely natural way with the historic volumes of the original facility and the existing Galleria Sabauda, offering new spaces and services, technological spaces, storerooms and workshops, and renovating the attics to create a striking panoramic roof garden.
After the initial phase of work completed in July 2013 (where Keope took part in the making of the floors in the new basement), the company from Reggio Emilia is also the protagonist of the second restructuring phase, supplying over 3500 m2 of porcelain stoneware flooring for the second floor of the museum, the area of the Temple of Ellesiya and the restrooms on the first, second and third floors.
In particular, Keope has provided products from the In&Out Percorsi Extra line, in the Pietra di Barge color, with the formats 60×60 and 30×60 cm. Thanks to the design of In&Out Percorsi Extra, which evokes the variegated mineral tones of stone, the designers have created a floor with a completely natural effect, perfectly matching the atmosphere of the museum that takes visitors on a long voyage in time, from 4000 BC to 700 AD.
Besides its appealing aesthetic impact, In&Out Percorsi Extra also ensures excellent technical performance in terms of wear, breakage and surface (preventing slipping), water and abrasion, to guarantee perfect safety in high-traffic areas requiring solutions that comply with the severe regulations for such public facilities.
