The Material That Keeps Transit Hubs Running

Milan’s Central Station features Mosa’s Terra Maestrict tiles and planks in Anthracite.

Municipal transit projects have entirely different material requirements than an office or hotel. Persistent vibration and high traffic—from passengers, luggage, and vehicles—demand increased strength and safety standards. With this in mind, architects and designers have specified Mosa’s award-winning porcelain tiles for a variety of transit projects around the world. The Dutch manufacturer creates the world’s first and only Cradle to Cradle Certified™ tile that exceed standards in slip-resistance, sustainability, and durability. Check out five innovative transit projects that showcase Mosa tile:

A collaboration between Merk X, Benthem Crouwel Architecten, and TAK Architecten, Amsterdam’s Central Station features stair treads formed from Mosa’s Terra Maestricht Collection. 

BDP Architects arrayed tiles from Mosa’s Terra Beige & Brown Collection to create a dynamic flooring pattern at Liverpool’s Exchange Station.

ÖBB Bahnhof Korneuburg, a transit stop in Bern, Switzerland, by Günter Mohr Architects, boasts a staircase clad in Mosa’s Terra Beige & Brown Collection.

Maccreanor Lavington Architects specified Mosa’s Quartz and Global Collection at Amsterdam’s Kraaiennest Metro Station.

At Amsterdam Passenger Terminal, Pieter Zeegers created a striped pattern using Mosa’s Terra Maestricht Collection.

Mosa’s state-of-the-art porcelain tiles also make appearances in a multitude of recent transit projects in the United States. Mosa enlivens various zones in Los Angeles International Airport by Staffelbach, Slade Architecture, and Corgan Architecture, and in Boston, Cambridge 7 Architects specified Mosa for the Ashmont Train Station. Learn how Mosa’s Cradle to Cradle Certified™ tile can elevate your next transportation project.
