Harvey Maria ‘on the map’ at Bassetlaw Museum

HARVEY Maria has completed a custom-print floor project for Bassetlaw Museum, in Retford, Nottinghamshire.

The bespoke design, described as seamless depicts an antique map visual, enabling the museum to continue its storyline across walls and floors. It forms part of a new Pilgrim Roots gallery space, designed by Michael Oakenfull from Querceus Design – and follows an earlier commission for the team at Amersham Museum.

A ‘treasure trove of fascinating objects’, Bassetlaw Museum explores the archeology, history, art, agriculture and industry of North Nottinghamshire, from its earliest settlers to the present day.

Most of its collections are housed within Amcott House – a restored Georgian property - which was rebuilt in 1780. The new gallery space is devoted to the story of the Pilgrim Fathers and coincides with the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower voyage to America.

‘Visitors love looking at the floor and navigating their way through 17th century Nottinghamshire,’ explained Michael Oakenfull. The map visual is encapsulated within a commercial grade wear-layer, providing a durable floor finish as well as a stunning addition to the multi-layered space.
