University of Copenhagen: Acoustics matter

The University of Copenhagen’s in-house designer embraced the opportunity to bring in acoustic properties for the renovation of the Library. 

It’s a well-known fact that well-being and productiveness are paramount when designing a space that is meant for work, learning and reading. So when in-house designer, Peter Schjøtt Andersen wanted to soften the noise levels in the library building he needn’t look further than Ege Carpets and their ReForm Memory Ecotrust carpet tiles.pom_university-of-copenhagen_04 webWanting to exploit the noise reducing properties of this product but still create a homely and warm look and feel as well, Anderson’s carpet choice was obvious.

The choice of colours, primarily based on neutrals as white, grey and black create a basic visual calmness, ideal for enhanced focus and efficiency. Combined with warmer brown tones and a sprinkling of light woods species and greens from big plants the library is enriched with a homely and cosy atmosphere.pom_university-of-copenhagen_03 webAbout ReForm Memory Ecotrust
