Knauf Metal Ceiling Panels Create A Sense Of Luxury In Premium Shopping Centre

The first T Galleria by DFS (formerly DFS Galleria) opened in downtown Hong Kong in 1968 to complement the retail chain’s in-airport duty-free stores. A Honolulu store followed and, since then, the downtown duty-free shopping experience has expanded to 18 locations around the world – in Asia, Australasia, Europe and the United States.

The concept offers customers an expertly curated collection of the world’s leading luxury brands in modern and inviting shopping environments, as well as highly personalised services and unique experiences. As many T Galleria by DFS customers are travellers, each location also offers destination-themed products, many of which are tailored to the local market.


The finishes of the metal ceiling panels confers an opulent and glittering appearance to the designated Cartier and Omega areas.

USG Boral’s range of metal ceilings comes in multiple designs and colours – with the ability to customise to achieve a branded look and feel for individual clients.


USG Boral’s range of Metal Ceilings now distributed in Australia was chosen for its suitability for this high-end project. Designed for a variety of commercial uses, the range comes in multiple designs and colours, including wood tones and perforations – with the ability to customise to achieve a branded look and feel for individual clients. The wide variety of available shapes and surfaces is proving popular with architects and interior designers who want to make an impact in shopping centres, hotel and office foyers and other public areas.

The USG Boral Architectural Services Team was able to liaise with the local contractors to achieve the required ‘look’ for each of the T Galleria concessions. This included assistance with placing the order and tracking delivery of the materials. Now that the shopping centre is open and welcoming customers, the stunning results speak for themselves.
