The flexibility of Rockfon Mono Acoustic helped architect Arantxa Guerrero achieve his challenging vision of an elegant and innovative ceiling design for the new five star The Llaut Palace Hotel in Majorca, Spain.
One of the most demanding elements of the project faced by the design team was to create a ceiling with an inverted pyramid design, inspired by the simple geometric beauty of origami. The ceiling creates stunning angular ripples throughout the large hotel dining hall.
Mr Guerrero said: “We wanted to transmit this sensation of lightness; the element of origami communicates movement and flexibility, expanding the space of the room.”
The origami-inspired artistry of Mr Guerrero demanded a material which didn’t sacrifice aesthetics but allowed for the construction of vertices and triangulations while delivering high acoustic absorption to control noise and reverberation in this busy space.
