Acoustic absorption and low level lighting are important for a sense of wellbeing and privacy in a workplace. Suspended ceilings are not the answer. As we design more office buildings with raw and exposed concrete and timber soffits, we need elements that can hang below and provide light and silence.
ACME & Bartenbach Lighting have developed a pad with acoustic and lighting properties that can be arranged freely in the space. Covered in a wooly fleece, and with invisibly recessed LED lights, the pad provides high sound absorption and a localized, invisible task light. The first large scape implementation will be at our 25.000sqm office project for SAB in Leipzig, due to open in 2021. The pad will be available commercially from Nimbus here.
