New Heradesign Creative from Knauf AMF – designed to inspire

  • 22 Oct 2018

Heradesign Creative is an innovative range of decorative and functional acoustic wall absorbers from Knauf AMF – available in eight shapes, they can be combined to produce truly unique designs.

Manufactured from sustainable wood-wool from PEFC and FSC certified sources, Heradesign Creative has a distinctive, woven surface that lends warmth and visual appeal to interiors.

Available in any colour, these versatile wall absorbers offer architects and interior designers the opportunity for unrivalled creative expression.

Architects Reiach and Hall specified Heradesign Creative in triangular shapes for the reception and breakout area in the University of Edinburgh’s Lister Learning and Teaching Centre to help create a stylish environment that reflects the vibrant and dynamic nature of the city and its educational institution.

Angus Wilson, Director at Reiach and Hall, explained: “The triangular pattern was initially developed to reflect a 1970’s motif that is repeated through various signage and graphics around the building.

“We chose a neutral colour, RAL9010, for the wall absorbers to enable signage elements to be mounted on to their surface. We also wanted to introduce a textured finish, in keeping with the original building, that is tough enough to withstand these heavily trafficked areas.”

Heradesign Creative provides the very best in class for impact resistance (A1), fire safety (A2), and outstanding Class A sound absorption, making it ideal for education buildings, offices, retail outlets, hotels, restaurants and other public spaces.

The outstanding sound absorbency of the wall absorbers is put to good use in the main entrance, as Angus commented on: “Heradesign Creative provides sound attenuation in a busy area of the building that is likely to have large numbers of lively students passing through. It is concentrated on the walls immediately adjacent to and opposite the reception for maximum sound control.”
