TfL tasked interior design and branding firm Tait with reinvigorating Old Street Tube Station into a prime retail destination in the heart of the underground network. One of the main aspects of the redesign was a wayfaring system to help visitors navigate more easily.
The subway naming system was changed for a simpler numbering system, and tunnels were given a distict colour identity, being wrapped in colourful digital ribbons that connected the underground with the outside.
Gaysha was asked to apply slip resistant surfacing to each tunnel in RAL colours that matched the main shades from the branding ribbons on the walls. Tripave® was an ideal choice for this project, having excellent slip resistance, it is also hardwearing and available in any RAL colour.
