Troldtekt, one of Europe’s largest innovators and manufacturers of wood wool panelling has won an ICONIC Award 2019 for its exciting new ‘design solutions’ range.
Danish manufactured Troldtekt panels are commonly specified throughout the UK and Europe to improve the interior acoustic environment. The new Collection has proved so popular it won the ‘Innovative Architecture’ Award at this year’s distinguished German Iconic Awards. Presented by the German Design Council, the Awards celebrate visionary architecture and innovative, sustainable products.
Designed by in-house architect Michael Christensen, the nine new Troldtekt design solutions have two primary features in common: Firstly, they are mass-produced and therefore competitively priced. Secondly, they give architects great flexibility and are designed to give ceiling and wall surfaces a seamless look. Each solution is intended to form a complete acoustic surface, whether large or small.
The range includes Troldtekt® line with perfectly symmetrical vertical lines, Troldtekt® tilt line with asymmetrical grooves, Troldtekt® curves, Troldtekt® tiles, Troldtekt® puzzle, 3-dimensional Troldtekt® rhomb and Troldtekt® dots. Troldtekt® dots is a fascinating design comprising 66 round indentations of varying size, adding a dynamic pattern of circular elements to the entire ceiling or wall surface. Each features its own distinctive pattern and a unique style which, when coupled with colours, offers specifiers huge amounts of flexibility to realise their most creative projects at a competitive cost.
Troldtekt’s ‘design solutions’ innovation combines the best ideals of form and function. In addition to the tactile surface, the panels offer high sound absorption, high durability, natural breathability and low cost life cycle performance as well as inherent sustainability.
Founded on the Cradle to Cradle design concept, 100% Troldtekt’s natural wood wool panels are manufactured in a new state-of-the-art production facility. They can be supplied in the FSC 100% category contributing to a building’s BREEAM, DGNB and LEED rating. In addition, because the panels are a natural, breathable material which can absorb and release moisture they are allergy friendly and have been awarded an Allergy Friendly Product Award by Allergy UK. They have also achieved leading Danish and international indoor climate certifications.
