Over the course of the outlet’s interior design, a fourth renowned name was added to those of the melodious sounding stakeholders already involved, as a variant of the parquet line Casapark from the Swiss manufacturer Bauwerk was installed over approximately 380 square metres throughout two rooms in the store.

Last year, Munich’s interior design company Böhmler opened the Rolf Benz + Piure by böhmler store in Ludwigpalais. This means that the company now has a representative address along one of Munich's prestigious boulevards: Ludwigstrasse. Over the course of the outlet’s interior design, a fourth renowned name was added to those of the melodious sounding stakeholders already involved, as a variant of the parquet line Casapark from the Swiss manufacturer Bauwerk was installed over approximately 380 square metres throughout two rooms in the store.

After passing under the arched entrance, visitors find themselves instantly enveloped in an harmonious setting and presentation concept filled with high-quality, timeless and carefully designed furniture that exude quality and sophistication.

The essential ingredient in creating such beauty is the parquet floor installed in the showroom. When looking for a suitable floor covering, the Böhmler furniture store and their architect from Hamburg were instantly drawn to the products from Bauwerk. The refined atmosphere of the interior, which enjoys ample natural light thanks to the large windows and is predominantly white, could really only accommodate a high-quality, light wooden floor; this furthermore had to suggest a certain sense of timelessness, a positive neutrality that would underpin the impact of completely different individual pieces of furniture as well as families of furniture, which would change over the year.

If you think about the prospective level of footfall, especially on the ground floor, parquet floors may not be the first thing that springs to mind. But the clientèle's exigence for a harmonious ambience certainly pointed to this decision. Since the popularity of parquet floors has been surpassing other options for many years, it was only logical to have it installed in both rooms of the store

The design ultimately decided upon was Casapark in Oak 15 Sasso, oiled and brushed. A widely valued and simultaneously neutral variant that goes with almost every piece of furniture. But the wood type and colour scheme were by no means Casapark’s only selling points; its estimable value for money played its part in the decision. The generously sized parquet was installed with planks in three widths. The extra effort required for this option was well worth it.

In principle the Casapark planks are easy to handle, as are all the products from Bauwerk, but when they are installed in three different widths, as was the case in the larger of the two rooms in the store, the team of installers had to have a clear understanding from the outset on how they are going to create the best effect. Having an installation plan is always a good idea and also helpful in this instance. A few planks were also laid out first to get a better feel for the area. Creating a direct connection and continuing up the stairs to the first floor posed a further challenge - one that was resolved perfectly.

The floor in the Rolf Benz + Piure by böhmler store wins shoppers over instantly. The 3-layer parquet Casapark was supplied in 2.2-metre-long 1-strip-planks, bevelled on two sides, in widths of 139, 181 and 221 mm. The three different widths were installed in the following sequence, 221mm, 181mm, 139 mm. It creates calm and guarantees a roomy spacious effect. To facilitate the calculation of how many planks would be needed, Bauwerk now offers a practical Excel-based volume calculator.

A smaller width was installed in a uniform pattern in the smaller of the two rooms and proved to be the perfect solution, since it does not create any visual breaks over the larger area. Just to round things off neatly, it should be noted that after about one year of use, the floor is still immaculate, living up to its claims in terms of cleaning and care. It has remained the special challenges brought on by winter could not alter its perfection.
