Cityringen Central Station


Cityringen Central Station | Copenhagen

Ceramic tiles from MOEDING were used for the facade design in seven of the 17 new metro stations. The red shade inspired by the Danish state railway (DSB) always indicates an interchange station – so of course, the central train station is also included. All the stations have a shiny or semi-gloss surface in common which is given the so-called “orange peel” effect for the first time through a special application technique. During the burn-in method, a wave-like relief is created in the glaze which forms a lively surface, depending on the angle you look at it and the reflection.

We opted for ceramic tiles from MOEDING because they offer a pronounced material and surface structure in large formats with a relatively low weight / area ratio and a heavy-duty, robust, vandal-resistant and aging-resistant cladding. The ceramic facade is a non-metallic cladding that allowed us to lay antenna cables for radio communication in the 150 millimeter space behind the panels.
