Emporia, Malmö

Through our partnership with Herrljunga Terrazzo AB, Matting AB supplied all the entrance mats for Emporia’s entrances. We opted for aluminium section mats with ribbed inserts. An effective, durable, rollable and attractive mat. The mat can be made to any desired shape. Emporia was opened in autumn 2012.

Some facts about Emporia

The shopping centre has a floor area of approximately 93,000 m², split between three retail floors and an open roof park with benches, binoculars and a garden, covering an area around 27,000 m². In the summer, the roof park has a café. The building is estimated to have cost around SEK 2 billion (including car park, residential properties and offices on the plot). The building was designed by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor, through Gert Wingårdh. An architectural competition was held in 2007 where the company contributed to the proposal which was subsequently chosen. Emporia won the award for best shopping centre at the World Architecture Festival in 2013. (Source: Wikipedia)


Malmö Live

Among other things, Malmö Live houses two concert halls, a congress hall and a hotel with 444 rooms. Malmö Live consists of three buildings which are connected to each other by a common entrance floor which greets everyone. Skanska was contractor and construction client for the congress and hotel, while the City of Malmö was construction client for the concert house. The architectural firm schmidt/hammer/lassen based its design around the location, the position within the city and Malmö Live’s various functions. The result is a building which is open in every direction and which has no front or rear. Nordic Choice opened the hotel, congress centre and restaurants on 2 May 2015.

In the many entrances, we have used our aluminium section mats and, with our tactile paths made from brass, ensured that the entrance and basement floors meet applicable access requirements.
