Organic Bistro at the Bachgraben

High quality food paired with high quality room atmosphere

A modern commercial area is being built in Allschwil at Bachgraben. Part of the BaseLink site has already been completed. Start-ups and spin-overs share the commercial space. The Bio Bistro is located on the first floor of one of the buildings. The interior is dominated by an industrial look with exposed concrete and visible wiring. In contrast, the open kitchen area including the self-service counter was clad with LIGNO® Akustik light real wood panels in oak. In addition to improving the room acoustics, these also bring a certain coziness.

    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.


    _625-12n25-4 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.


    _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
