Arthrex European Headquarters

Ochs Schmidhuber Architects

Munich, Germany
Soft Cells panels by Kvadrat Acoustics and Luminous Textile Panels are used at the new European research and sales headquarters of Arthrex, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of orthopaedic medical devices.

The bright foyer that greets visitors to the building has a seven-metre high ceiling. This posed an acoustic challenge: how to create a comfortable acoustic climate with clear and full yet balanced sound? OSA architects achieved this by creating a wall element made from the panels.

A wall element combining Luminous Textile Panels and Soft Cells Broadline panels enhances the visual and acoustic quality of the foyer. It also provides creative freedom to show presentations, announcements and welcome messages.

"The wall reflects the fact that imagination knows no bounds. Soft Cells Panels and the Luminous Textile Panels enabled us to achieve a perfect result."
