MICROTOPPING FOR THE TESEUM IN TONGEREN
Microtopping as the background for ancient treasures
of Teseum Museum, in Tongeren.
The Basilica of Tongeren is one of Belgium’s largest and richest churches with the largest collection of religious relics dating from the sixth to the twentieth century.
All the Basilica’s gold and collections are contained in the Teseum, an exhibition that opened in June, characterised by a modern setting created by designers Bailleul Ontwerpbureau and design architect Chris van Brussel from the architectural studio Michel Janssen.
To contrast with the gold and the lustre of the works in the museum, Microtopping was chosen as a finish coating for the walls and corridors. Microtopping’s neutrality enhances the splendour and treasures in the building.
