There’s a traditional hierarchy in architecture when it comes to the senses.

How interiors sound comes further down the list, with the relative lack of consideration given to acoustics in architectural training testifying to this.

Thankfully, when it comes to the workplace, there’s an increasing understanding of just how negatively affected both productivity and well-being can be through unmanaged sound, and an attendant desire to address this. Palmberg, the Made-in-Germany brand long known for the comprehensiveness of its product offering when it comes to the fitting-out of the interior landscapes of our offices, has recently opened a new production facility near its headquarters in Northern Germany that focuses solely on the fabrication of acoustically active elements.

What does this mean for architects and other specifiers? That they are now able to deliver joined-up interior-architectural schemes, where all the product elements featuring in them – including acoustic ones – share the same design language and the same painstaking attention to materiality and quality finishing. Meaning, in turn, no compromise on creative vision.

Sound like a lot of noise about not much? Well, know this. Customisation comes as standard with Palmberg. The company’s flexible-production model means that every product can be made according to the client’s bespoke requirements. Think of Palmberg as your architectural partner, rather than simply as a supplier.

That’s real love.
