Fine lines

The CIBC bank in New York integrates a Kvadrat Acoustics solution comprising over 200 unique panels. To eye-catching effect, they continue graphic lines from the floor across the ceiling throughout the office.

At the bank, the Kvadrat Acoustics solution is used in offices, corridors, consultation rooms, and open social spaces to elevate acoustic and aesthetic quality while boosting speech intelligibility, wellbeing, and productivity. It comprises individually shaped Soft Cells Broadline acoustic panels divided by strip lighting, upholstered in Casa, Mi Casa, Ginger 2 and Air 4.

The Kvadrat Acoustics team spent over 200 hours revising each panel's precise details to ensure a perfect fit with the building's geometry, milled wooden panels and lighting fixtures. As many were too large to fit into the elevators, they were designed to be split into smaller sizes for transport.

CIBC U.S. provides tailored commercial, wealth management, personal, and small business financial solutions, as well as cross-border banking services to clients with North American operations.
