Lörrach District Office

Novelty: Acoustic element in 3D with bending radius

The Lörrach District Office is accessed via an open foyer with reception and a spacious staircase. The majority of the office landscape on the floors above can be freely designed; team islands, think tanks and lounges with a view are located along the facades. Meeting areas of varying quality are located in the central zone. As a natural break in the clear and deliberately sober interior architecture with a lot of exposed concrete and glass, real wood panelling made of LIGNO® Akustik 3D in knotty silver fir was selected for furniture and room-in-room components. By the way, here you can admire a novelty made of LIGNO®: The panels were partially manufactured with a bending radius and - analogous to the image of the exterior façade - also gently clad the interior.

    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

    _EI Oak knotless


    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.


    _625-22n40-4 Slat profile "nature"


    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.


    _gb Brushed


    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.

    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
