Emser partners with designers across the country to bring beautiful spaces to life. Drawing on our tile and natural stone collections, designers can create inviting spaces to match their client’s unique vision, from timeless to modern – or both.
Working with design firm, CallisonRTKL, Emser is laying the foundation at King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania. The largest mall on the East coast, King of Prussia Mall is a premier shopping destination for both locals and tourists. As part of a complete renovation, CallisonRTKL and Emser remodeled the mall’s east and west concourses – a project spanning nearly 80,000 square feet.
The directive for the project stemmed from the mall’s name - a majestic yet modern look with a classical twist.
The interior designers created a bespoke and high-end space through the use of specific materials. As an ode to the original vision of the mall, polished marble served as an integral building block. The marble was then paired with contemporary-favorite, polished porcelain, to provide a crisp, current feel. The team decided on a simple and elegant color palette of black, white, neutral beiges, and grays; with the contrast of black and white evoking regal tones, and the neutrals softening the contrast for a fresh, modern-day aesthetic.
This design vision was called to be as functional as it was appealing. King of Prussia, thanks to the renovation, now houses 450 retailers and restaurants and attracts more than 22 million visitors each year. By choosing porcelain and marble, Emser and CallisonRTKL could deliver a design that withstands substantial foot traffic in high-volume areas with grace and flair.
The end result is one that lives up to the illustrious history of the mall. We hope you enjoy a glimpse into the glamorous space.
