The design of 360 Degrees was conceived by Creneau International of Hasselt, Belgium which prides itself on creating trend-setting spaces that also provide a brand image for its clients.
A common thread in Creneau’s designs is to connect spaces with consumers, and this was the goal for 360 Degrees, which is located in a new square within Genk. “The interior consists of natural elements with warm colors, which creates a nice atmosphere to drink coffee, have lunch or drink a beer,” stated a design description by Creneau.
In addition to elements such as stone countertops, rich woodwork and modern furnishings, 360 Degrees was designed with large-format tile flooring from Tile of Spain-branded manufacturer Apavisa of Castellon, Spain.
The tiles come from Apavisa’s Metal Collection, and they were specified in the company’s “Titanium Natural” variety. Providing a clean, crisp look for the interior of the project, the tiles are 60- x 60-cm in size (23.45 x 23.45 inches), and their use begins at the main entrance of 360 Degrees, where a large bar was designed by Creneau to ensure that customers on the go would quickly be served. The use of the metal-look tiles continues into the seating area at 360 Degrees, providing a signature look that can also withstand the heavy foot traffic that comes along with a busy gathering spot in an up-and-coming city.
