The healing effect of acoustics & architecture
Room acoustics play an increasingly important role in everyday practice and clinical practice. The interaction of pleasant room acoustics with modern clinic and practice architecture was the focus of this project. Our goal for the oral surgery practice from Hamburg was to create a harmonious environment for patients and staff.
Mainly for hygienic reasons, hard and smooth surfaces predominate in healthcare rooms. However, these contribute to an increase in sound reflection and thus trigger acoustic discomfort typical of hospitals. The sounds of footsteps, voices, alarms, and the hum and buzz of medical equipment and drills blend together to create a disturbing soundscape that has a strong impact on the well-being of individuals.
When planning the acoustics measures, our crew paid attention to a mix of restrained and simple light and acoustic ceiling sails in combination with an acoustic baffle design object. The acoustic solutions were deliberately chosen in a light shade to reflect the hygienic aspect of the practice. The chosen white color shade conveys the clean aspect of a practice. This is broken up by plays of light and shadow, creating a confidential, health-promoting atmosphere.

Insights into the project
apn® Lamella A wave
Ceiling design with our product apn® Lamella Wave
Especially for the reception area of the oral surgery practice the wing beat of our acoustic baffles apn® Lamella Wave was designed. The eye-catcher in an extravagant wave shape is additionally transformed into a breathtaking acoustic design object of the area concept with LED pendant lights. Here, the baffles act as a breakwater, reducing sound propagation and preventing sound reflection from the ceiling. Thus, the basic damping of the room is optimized by the outstanding acoustic properties. You want to know more about our acoustic baffles? Just click on the link:
apn® Vinta A Lux Flare
Ceiling design with our lighting product apn® Vinta A Lux Flare
The apn® Vinta A Lux Flare acoustic luminous ceiling sails combine acoustic attenuation, illumination and indirect lighting in one product. Energy-efficient LED lights with variable illuminance and changeable light color provide a high level of lighting comfort, while the integrated RGB lighting bathes the room in a magical light - with full sound absorption. The resulting change in the spatial effect of the reception area positively influences the perception of patients and staff and sets the scene for the room visually and acoustically.

apn® Vinta A Lux
Ceiling design with our luminaire product apn® Vinta A Lux
The apn® Vinta A Lux Single XL square acoustic luminous ceiling sails illuminate the waiting area of the oral surgery practice and additionally contribute to acoustic attenuation. In combination with our acoustic ceiling sails apn® Vinta A Square, the acoustic light ceiling sails combine to form a floating and three-dimensional chessboard on the ceiling.
