Troldtekt wood wool panels soften acoustics at new Milan styled Italian café

  • 2 Jan 2020

Troldtekt wood wool panels have helped to soften acoustics at an intriguing new Milan styled Italian café on Essex Road, Islington.

The 240 sqm ‘Latteria’ has been designed by well-known Italian studio Vudafieri-Saverino Partners, and is inspired by Milanese culture and style with a warm and informal atmosphere in white and red. This is complemented by Troldtekt’s wood wool panels on the ceiling, painted white to blend in and used to soften the acoustics and reduce background noise.

Troldtekt panels are frequently used in this kind of open-plan environment to combat noise generated by the kitchen machinery, staff and customers which is exacerbated by bouncing off the hard surfaces. This is particularly true in this project where the design harks back to the 1950’s and features an open-plan kitchen coupled with hard surface lacquers and laminates, polished and satin-finished steel, tiled walls and marble floors.

Troldtekt’s acoustic panels absorb both direct and reverberated sound. They help to strike the balance between a lively and welcoming environment and an experience where the venue is uncomfortably loud. This is important because customers’ comfort and a willingness to spend time and money is decreased in a noisy environment.

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. This high performance is recognised by their Cradle to Cradle certification at Silver level. 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.
