The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is one of the world’s leading museums of natural history and world culture, welcoming more than one million visitors each year.
"Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers solved our client’s desire to eliminate waste while keeping in line with a smart and sophisticated design aesthetic."
As a history museum, preservation is at the ROM’s heart. So during the building’s expansion, architects were seeking an environmentally friendly hand drying solution that could also cope with the museum’s high visitor numbers.
