Kelvin Hall

The historic Kelvin Hall has been a centre for the arts, sport and culture in Glasgow for over 80 years – and in 2016, this impressive building has once again been redeveloped to showcase Scottish culture and history. In partnership with Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life, and the University of Glasgow, Kelvin Hall is now home to the national library, as well as numerous other physical and digital research archives.

Working alongside Glasgow-based design company Stuco, as well as other suppliers, Flexiform provided numerous highly bespoke products suitable for the unique needs and surroundings of this historic building.
