NEW CLERKENWELL SHOWROOM FEATURES RECYCLED PET ACOUSTIC PANELLING BY WOVEN IMAGE
A beautiful new showroom featuring Woven Image’s recycled acoustic performance wall panel Longitude, has opened in London’s design heart Clerkenwell. The installation was overseen by The Collective, Woven’s exclusive UK distributor.
The showroom provides a working office space for Clarus, the international writable glass board manufacturers, with a variety of showroom spaces to welcome clients informally and in work settings; a crittal-style glass meeting room; a large collaborative studio-style bench; height adjustable desks; high-backed soft seating booths and an informal lounge area.
With so many different types of working space in just 1,390 sq. ft. it was essential the design team made sure that each of these areas is functional and aesthetically appealing. Through The Collective, Clarus installed Longitude wall panels to reduce the impact of reverberating acoustics in the space. With a bevelled edge, the Longitude panels are a contemporary take on smart, traditional wood panelling.
The Longitude acoustic wall panel range is made of the award winning EchoPanel material in 12mm thickness. Longitude achieves up to an outstanding 0.75 NRC (noise reduction coefficient rating) when installed with a 50mm air gap. Available in a huge 27 colourways, EchoPanel is made of 60% recycled post-consumer plastic waste. It is estimated that to-date Woven Image has recycled 107 million tonnes of plastic bottles to create their acoustic performance materials. According to Lucy Abraham, Founder and Director at The Collective, Longitude was the perfect solution:” We’ve been working toward creating the best space possible with Clarus, who were meticulous about getting the right partners on-board. Woven Image create beautiful and, critically, functional acoustic performance products, so we were keen to use them to help create the environment we knew would be the best space for our clients and customers to experience our products.”
