The M-Lab is used as a communication hub; it is characterised by high ceilings and spacious, open rooms and conveys a feeling of freedom and spaciousness. The furnishing specialists from POPO were engaged to design the rooms from furnishing through to the lighting concept. They also addressed the matter of acoustics in the new rooms, where predominantly smooth, acoustically hard surfaces influence the atmosphere. POPO opted for Rossoacoustic PADs Q from Nimbus to achieve the desired sound attenuation. In the colour Grey Dawn, they complement the airy concept implemented by the designers. A total of 56 PADs have been mounted on the ceiling in the work and meeting zones. As the POPO designers explain: “The design and functionality of the PADs fit in well with the concept. We wanted acoustic panels that are restrained in design and leave a clear view of the bare industrial ceiling.” In discreet grey and a straightforward design, the PADs generate pleasant room acoustics and blend in harmoniously with the overall look of the elegant, loft-style M-Lab.
