Institut Français de la Mode

Study and research in good room atmosphere 

The present-day “Cité de la Mode et du Design” was built in 1907. The “Institut Français de la Mode” has been using the converted building since 2008. The architect Patrick Mauger is responsible for the latest changes: he rearranged the floor plan in favour of more common rooms, which he connected via a large staircase. The acoustic claddings in silver fir and oak provide for excellent room acoustics and soften the harsh industrial character in favour of more homeliness.  

Configuration overview

Components used

  • LIGNO® Akustik light  | Acoustic cladding

    Product code: LIGNO Akustik light 3S_33_a70g_625-20-4_WTL_gs_bl-w10
    Wood type


    Various wood species are available for the visible layer. For quality reasons, individual wood species cannot be configured for all profiles; for technical reasons, surface treatments are excluded for some wood species.

    Wood type

    _WTL Silver fir knotless, patterned

    Profile


    The visible layer is profiled with joints. The code for profiling indicates in millimetres: Element width, strip width (rounded, from/to if applicable) and joint width (rounded) as well as a letter identification for variants, e.g. with chamfered strip edges or with additional height gradation.
     

    Note: Some profiles indirectly cause exclusions for other configuration options.

    Profile 

    _625-20-4 Slat profile

    Structure


    The face is subjected to a brushing _gb as standard, which produces a stronger or weaker structure depending on the type of wood and makes the surface less sensitive to scratches. Alternatively, a smooth sanding _gs can be carried out, or on request a bandsaw cut _grimitated.

    Structure

    _gs Sanded

    Treatment


    Depending on the type of wood, the optional application of a surface treatment is possible ex works. Individual colour finishes are always sampled for coordination. For elements in individual lengths, colour treatment is limited to max. 5 m length.

    Treatment

    _bl-w10 Lacquer, translucent

    Room acoustics


    If the soffit of the element is to have a good sound-absorbing effect, the penultimate layer is configured as absorber _a50g. Otherwise, this layer is configured as a solid wood layer _a0.

    Room acoustics

    _a70g 70 % Absorber

    Fire resistance


    If fire protection is required, an additional layer is added below the web area (for elements with strip profiles _z26, _z53, _z80, for elements with board profiles Akustik klassik _k50g). Their height determines the fire resistance duration of the cross-section from 30 to 90 minutes. The fire resistance must be statically verified. If there are no requirements, the standard versions _z0 or _k50l are to be selected.

    Fire resistance

    _C-s2-d0 Fire retardant surface
