The new office of Quooker in Zurich
Showroom visually and acoustically staged
In 1970, the Dutch company Quooker developed the first tap that provides flowing boiling water. The company is now present all over the world. One of the most recent locations was set up in Kloten, Switzerland. In order for sales talks and concentrated work to be possible side by side, an acoustically effective balance to the otherwise very industrial, reverberative floors and ceilings of the commercial building was mandatory. A task that acoustic panels made of bright silver fir take care of: they were used as the cladding of the two centrally located meeting rooms. The warm genuine wood surfaces create a charming contrast to the otherwise rather sober ambience.

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.
_WTL Silver fir knotless, patterned
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.
_625-12n25-4 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.
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.
_buv UV-protection stain
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.
