Product: glazed wall tiles
Like the Town Hall and the Post office on the same road (the Coolsingel), the Rotterdam Stock Exchange, designed by architect Staal in 1933, did survive the devastating bombardment by the Luftwaffe in 1940, which otherwise wiped out most of Rotterdam's historic center. From 1940 the building also housed the Shipping Ex-change, which was wound up in 1998. With the tiles of the building's walls wearing and the large ceramic slabs of the tower coming loose, these had to be replaced.
We ran into various difficulties meeting the size of the tiles and the delicate shades of the green glazing. After quite a few samples we managed to produce a quality that more than satisfied our and the client's exacting standards.
