The new Design Museum at Kensington, which opened its doors to the public in November 2016 following a move from its previous residence at Shad Thames, has specified Allgood’s Modric ironmongery throughout its interior.
Winner of the Guild of Architectural Ironmongery Specification Awards 2016/ 2017 Commercial category, the imaginative ironmongery solutions meet the architects brief; matching the building’s look and feel. The inherent objective of the project was to create a world-class museum in the heart of London, including permanent and temporary exhibitions as well as learning spaces – showcasing all elements of design, including fashion, product and graphic design.
The interior of the Design Museum features an array of products from the Modric range including lever handles, hinges, pull handles, push plates, wc turns, and door signage, as well as overhead door closers, magnetic door holders and unique, concealed doorstops.
Jan Hobel, Lead Architect at John Pawson, said, “Allgood’s range of Modric ironmongery is well known for its distinguished appearance and quality. A durable and high performance ironmongery solution, Modric is ideal for high traffic applications, such as museums and public buildings.”
