Well-being in a room is one of the most important ingredients for successful working, enjoying or socializing. Two essential aspects of this are good lighting and good acoustics. Studies show that a quiet environment, especially in a professional setting, has a significant impact on increasing productivity and well-being. Too much noise can even be detrimental to health, causing stress, high heart rates and increased blood pressure. Impact Acoustic® products help to significantly improve the feeling in a room, without compromising the design. While the right light intensity or color temperature play a role in choosing the right luminaires, in acoustics there are two key principles to keep in mind: Absorption and Diffusion.
Sound behaves like other energy sources and 'travels' through space. When a sound wave hits a surface in a room, such as a wall, some of the sound is reflected and returned to the room and some is absorbed, depending on the nature of the surface. The higher the absorption coefficient of a material, the better it helps optimize the acoustics in the room. For example, the 24mm ARCHISONIC® material has an absorption coefficient of 75%.
Sound diffusion refers to the degree of 'dispersion' of sound waves in a room. Those sound waves that are not absorbed by surfaces therefore travel in different directions through the room, creating unpleasant noise. The aim is to achieve the lowest possible diffusion values. To prevent this, acoustic ceiling sails with integrated lighting (for example Bysso Pro, Ora Pro or Tetra Pro) can be placed directly above noise sources, such as workstations or meeting tables
UMBRA ROUND PRO
In line with team’s expectations to make workspaces feel like an extension of their homes, this acoustic lighting fixture achieves just that. The well-balanced geometric shapes contribute structure to a space and can easily be combined in different sizes to give the interior that little extra touch of cosy.
Amazing, how light can be focused and directed in a targeted manner using the reflectors, thus guaranteeing the best illumination of workplaces. The processing of the recessed light sources ensures that the light in the acoustic panel almost disappears. The rounded corners of the floating sail create a secure feeling of space.
COLORS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Unique colors and finishes, with infinite combinations, enable a holistic interior design concept to be completed or certain highlights to be created. The 25 exclusive PROLICHT colors impress with their unique finish and are available without surcharge or extension of the delivery time. And because creativity at PROLICHT knows no limits, we can of course also manufacture your luminaire in any RAL Classic color on request.
We had to pay tribute to our blue planet with a collection of sea- and sky-inspired hues. As our air and water quality are increasingly under threat, the appeal of nature’s blues becomes stronger. With the power to calm or energise, the lure of the open water and endless skies is precious and eternal. These blues work perfectly both as familiar single hues and in effortless tonal layers to create an immersive environment for focus or restoration.
While color can create a mood, it is the depth or lightness of a hue that truly defines the emotion. Luxury will forever be synonymous with the most pigmented hues, and with an almost velvety aesthetic, these are contemporary shades that enhance polished woods and metals and after-dark venues. While each hue has the strength to stand alone, beautiful effects can be achieved with harmonised pairs.
Our green color preferences are informed by our geography, and with these four hues we aim to capture the essence of greens around the globe. From the cool greens of Nordic pine forests to the yellowed aspect of young wheat, we see Living Greens breathing life into indoor spaces, and an essential palette for the future. Use in tonal layers brings the depth and diversity of green, while a single note can provide an amplifying backdrop to a biophilic space.
With each color family represented from yellow through to both color accents and the zoning and wayfinding of larger areas. There are no rules here with endless possibilities for clashing contrasts or surprising highlights. For a sophisticated use of energetic color, take a single hue and color match contrasting textiles and solid surfaces.
Their beauty lies in their simplicity, and in combination with their childhood familiarity, the addition of almost black and white brings a cool graphic touch. While corporate branding and commeRcial space zoning are natural outcomes for individual primary brights, we see directional applications increasing in importance. The primary story happens when all three main colors are used together, with varied proportions creating differing moods. As with the Energetic Brights palette, combine with coordinating colored textiles and solid surfaces.
In the ephemeral wisp of smoke from a log fire, the slowly shifting clouds above a mountain or a raindrop on a window there’s a sense of gentle motion that soothes the senses. We enhanced these elemental concepts with colors inspired by gentle wildlife. These shades work in harmony with natural textural materials and soften industrial environments. From light to dark and cool to warm, these are the foundations of any scheme where longevity and a mood of calm is desired.
The greatest comfort is often to be found in nature, both in its awe-inspiring grandiosity and its simple beauty. From the rich red of rugged canyons to the soft pink of delicate shells we gathered the perfect hues to create a color mood to comfort, cocoon and protect. Combinations of lighter toned neutrals and pinks have a gently soothing and restorative effect while the more saturated hues make perfect environments for relaxation.
This directional color collection is curated from our core palettes of Elemental Blues, Living Greens and Warm Naturals. Combined with shades from the Quiet Neutrals collection and natural materials, these colors take on a timeless quality. With tonal duos of pink and blue and green, this perfectly balanced group is designed for peaceful plays on light and shade and playful contrast. While the lightest tones have a dreamlike quality, their deeper counterparts add a subtle grounding.
ARCHISONIC® - THE MATERIAL
The building sector is the largest single source of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Half of the energy used in the construction of new buildings is used to generate materials and products expended. Sustainable indoor acoustic products can be an easy first start to make a much-needed change. That is why IMPACT ACOUSTIC® developed ARCHISONIC®, probably the most flexible and high-performance acoustic material on the market. IMPACT ACOUSTIC® upcycles over 20 million bottles per year.
