Arthrex European Headquarters

Ochs Schmidhuber Architects

Munich, Germany
Kvadrat Soft Cells and Philips 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 Philips Luminous Textile Panels and Kvadrat 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. The Kvadrat Soft Cells and the Phillips Luminous Textile Panels enabled us to achieve a perfect result."
