Product description

Engineering solutions that create the desired ambience, especially in modern buildings used for work and education or rooms intended for meetings or gatherings represents a challenge of enormous proportions. A wide variety of textile materials makes it possible to create individual shapes that go beyond what standardised products can accomplish. Working in close cooperation with the customer, we produce large-surface, three-dimensional structures and functional design objects that are tailored to specific requirements. Setting virtually no boundaries to the customer's imagination, we always collaborate with the customer to find the most economical and technically sound solution. We apply our pioneering spirit and our engineering expertise to craft unique designs that are intricate, yet durable enough to withstand any stress during temporary or permanent use.

Concept

The expectations as to what qualifies as a well-designed room have increased dramatically - especially when it comes to office and work environments, educational buildings and function rooms. Today, rooms are not only supposed to serve a specific purpose but are also expected to be comfortable and inspire motivation. One factor of principal importance in this regard is how the occupants in the room experience light and sound. Textile materials offer innumerable options to merge the requirements on the acoustics in the room with the expectations the occupants have in terms of modern interior design. For instance, high-performance membranes can be incorporated as versatile design elements capable of heightening ambience, absorbing sound and using light for illumination and dramatic effects.

Koch Membranen owes their ability to develop their own translucent and sound-absorbing membrane materials to the know-how they have accumulated over long decades of operating in the textile architecture business. The company's light and acoustic fabrics Artex®, Helioflon® and Siglatex® are used as part of lightweight and intricate shapes in construction systems and standard products. Thanks to the materials' negligible own weight and largely pre-assembled ceiling systems, sails, umbrellas or baffles, installing the systems is fast and easy. They are equally well suited for new construction and renovations as well as expansions. All systems are scalable to satisfy individual requirements and can be used in a large variety of shapes and design options. The innovative membranes never fail to create stylish designs and attractive solutions for interior rooms that are flooded with light and offer optimised sound absorption.

Apart from such standard products as acoustic sails and column cladding solutions, we increasingly engineer customised solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of architects and builders with discriminating requirements.
