Designer: Studio strasserthun
Location: punkt6 – House of Materials, Thun, Switzerland
Product & End Use: Betacoustic | Windows/Space Divider
With punkt6, the strasserthun material pioneers have created a world where planners and designers can experience innovative materials and finishings up close—in an atmosphere that is refreshingly different from traditional showrooms: The architecture is completely focused on providing a backdrop for the pure display of the materials.
Light control and noise absorption are the central challenges in the 750-square-meter (8,073-square-foot) exhibition and office space. The transparent acoustic fabric Betacoustic enables these challenges to be mastered with brilliance. Its sophisticated elegance and excellent functionality—with an Alpha value of 0.65—contributes to the space concept.
