European XFEL is a scientific research facility in Hamburg due to open in 2017. It will generate ultrashort X-ray flashes, enabling scientists to map the atomic detail of viruses and take 3-D images of the nanoworld.

The facility is in a new building, which includes offices, meeting rooms and social spaces. The interior concept by Blunck und Morgen HH architects brings together a variety of soft furnishings, neutral tones and bolder highlight colours.

Solution

Soft Cells Broadline panels, which match the surfaces, colours and furniture in the facility, are used in a variety of meeting rooms, as well as the spacious lobby. They enhance the quality of the acoustic environment, making it easier to conduct conversations.
