Walls and ceilings demand atmosphere, acoustics and flexibility. Preferably low-maintenance, scratch-, stain- and impact-resistant, but above all beautiful. From green walls and natural materials such as wood, bamboo, loam, and cork for a soothing, moisture- and temperature-regulating environment, to colourful wall covering, plaster or paint. From acoustic textile solutions to transparent interactive glass versions. The acoustic function of micro-perforations offers many possibilities for the use of hard materials. The ceiling can even be illuminating, stimulate daylight, or is joined seamlessly with the walls and floor. Functionality, convenience, and aesthetics are integrated more and more.
