Plantin Metro Station | Antwerp, Belgium

In 2015, PolyVision worked with Enthoven Associates Design Consultants to refurbish the Plantin Metro station in Antwerp, Belgium. The artwork incorporates extracts from the famous printer and publisher, Christopher Plantin, who started his largest and longest lasting firm, Plantin Press, in Antwerp. The city recently acquired this property and transformed it into a museum honoring Plantin for his work and the impact he had on the city. Their goal was to use the metro station as an avenue to promote this new museum, enhance the aesthetics of the station and use material that is durable and easy to clean. The images and QR code that links to the museum website were printed on CeramicSteel using PolyVision’s state of the art digital printer.
