Flooring Design Week

Jan Parth from David Chipperfield Architects, Peter Ippolito of Ippolito Fleitz Group, and MACH Architektur's David Marquardt share some thoughts on the ground beneath our feet.

‘The floor is the foundation of any design, in the end’
David Marquardt, MACH Architektur

More floor? Why not? For many architects, a project's floor is the non plus ultra of surfaces, a testing ground, as it were, that enables the process of working out the organisation and shape of a space as a whole. Moreover, it can determine circulation, supporting and guiding users and visitors, as well as create a sense of well-being, manage sound, and actively engage in the narrative of a place.

For our Flooring Design Week, we've spoken to Jan Parth from David Chipperfield Architects, Peter Ippolito of the eponymous Ippolito Fleitz Group, and MACH Architektur's David Marquardt for their thoughts and experiences on what lies beneath us.
