When interior design company Sibley Grove was appointed to re-design the public areas at The Chamberlain Hotel near Tower Hill in London, sustainability was paramount; with the company’s ethos stating design should be a vehicle for positive change, both environmentally and socially Troldtekt’s wood wool panels were specified.
This was in order to make an important contribution to the overall design of the luxurious interpretation of an industrial basement bar.
As part of the concept, the interior has been stripped back to create height and volume, revealing structural columns and ductwork within. In addition, the façade has been adapted so natural light can flood in and reveal the inner working of the space.
By its very nature, this created a lot of hard surfaces, so Troldtekt’s acoustic wood wool panels were specified to help combat the problems generated by noise and reverberated sounds.
The designers were keen to specify as many sustainable and Cradle-to-Cradle certified materials as possible, such as wall and floor tiles, timber, carpets and Troldtekt’s wood wool ceilings (certified to Silver Level).
By specifying these products, the environmental impact is minimal and also that, if and when the time comes for a change, the materials can be reused, re-appropriated. recycled or upcycled.
Specified throughout the UK and Europe, the benefits of 100% Troldtekt natural wood wool panels include high sound absorption, high durability, natural breathability, low cost life cycle performance and sustainability.
Available in various sizes and in four grades from extreme fine to coarse, the panels can be left untreated or painted in virtually any RAL colour.
