According to the 2011-2015 National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS), released by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), there were over 19,700 airports in the U.S. Of these, 5,170 airports are open to the general public with 503 airports offering commercial service. Can you imagine how many square feet of flooring is required for those airports? Is there an airport you feel could use an update to it’s flooring?
That’s what the people behind the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport decided to do. The carpet designed by Bloomsburg Carpet for this property featured a unique pattern that Kelly Taaffe Design, Inc created just for the project. To translate the design into the more than 65,000-square-feet of carpet needed for the project, the design studio worked closely with Bloomsburg’s computer technicians and artists to turn their creative inspiration into a reality.
The carpet reflected the natural indigenous beauty of the surrounding flora and fauna of the Tampa Bay area through a color palette of greens, blues, sands and black. The six-foot by six-foot pattern swirls and repeats itself throughout the terminal, bringing a fresh, unified look and leading travelers through the airport. Ultimately, the carpet tied each terminal of the airport together and helped achieve the project design goal of a unified and fresh, new look.
