Royal Swedish Academy in Stockholm
Excellent room acoustics in the "Beijersalen"
The project is a masterpiece in interior architecture and lighting design, planned with great finesse by Sweco and coordinated with the light silver fir surface of the acoustic panelling made of LIGNO®. The new interior design was adapted to the historical substance in perfect detail. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences is an independent organisation whose overriding goal is to promote the sciences and strengthen their influence in society. The Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry and Economy are awarded at the Academy. The building has undergone extensive renovation.
In the "Beijersalen" as well as in the lounge, the walls are covered with elegant real wood acoustic panels by Lignotrend, which provide pleasant and quiet room acoustics. Nobel Prize winners present their work in the "Beijersalen", it has excellent acoustics. The LIGNO® acoustic panels were chosen in the irregular nature strip profile, which helps to draw the focus away from the technology. In accordance with the requirements for the meeting place, the surface of the wall cladding made of LIGNO® is classified as flame-retardant, here in the increased fire behaviour class B-s1-d0.
From a cove on the ceiling, subtle and grazing effect lighting is possible, enriching the field of vision. The team conducted a series of tests to find out the right lighting characteristics in relation to the panels. The result is an illumination of the vertical surfaces that supports the visual perception of the presentations and enhances the spatial impression. Changing colours and lighting moods create a feeling of clarity and spaciousness in the enclosed space.The team conducted a series of tests to find out the right lighting characteristics in relation to the panels.

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-i 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.

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.
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.
