Hunter Douglas will unveil the world’s first modular felt ceiling system at [email protected] London between the 25th – 26th January at the Olympia, London.

The Heartfelt modular and linear ceiling system has been developed in partnership with Bjarne Hammer. It has recently been installed at Moneypenny’s £15 million headquarters in Wrexham, specified for its flexibility and excellent acoustic properties.

Available in six standard modular sizes, from 50mm to 100mm, the panels are available in five colours and is manufactured from 100 percent recyclable material.

The felt ceiling system marks another innovation from Hunter Douglas, which is increasingly working as a design partner on construction projects across Europe. 

Other divisions of Hunter Douglas have embarked on ground-breaking projects including Penta College in Spijkenisse, the Netherlands, undertaken by Hunter Douglas WCP (Window Covering Projects) and an old fire station in Bornem, Belgium, completed by Hunter Douglas Façades, which installed a smooth cladding system with QuadraClad200.

The company has also worked with architect Ilan Pivko to create motorised folding screens with unique perforations for luxury houses in the coastal town of Gaash, Israel.

Pieter van Rees, Hunter Douglas’ marketing manager, commented: “These days, in our field, it is no longer enough just to deliver good products. Demand for customised work is growing among architects and designers and they are also readily inspired by a supplier and sparring partner like us. This role suits us well and we are stepping into it more often.”
