Optimizely, Amsterdam

The Problem

AV and video-conferencing rooms are extremely susceptible to high reverberation and compromised sound quality if the room itself doesn’t feature enough sound absorptive surfaces.

Resonics was contacted to provide a solution for exactly this problem. The AV room at Optimizely in Amsterdam featured a concrete ceiling and wall. This combined with the regular use of audio-visual equipment in the room created the need for a high quality sound absorption system to improve the speech clarity and reduce background echo.

The Solution

We were able to work remotely for the first step of the project; taking a brief from the team in Amsterdam and providing a proposed solution that would deal with the room’s acoustic issues.

Working closely with AV specialists Carillion Communications, we designed a solution that would not only provide optimal sound absorption but would also fit in with Optimizely’s style brief – the company were keen to incorporate company branding and keep the industrial concrete look of the room.

Over a two-day period our team worked in Amsterdam to build a Fabric Wall system along three of the four meeting room walls. One of these walls also incorporated the Print Wall system so the company logo and a concrete effect design could feature. The other two walls were finished with Vescom Lani fabric – a high quality sound absorptive fabric.

The Result

The final result was a class A sound absorption system with a high quality finish that incorporated the design brief set by Optimizely.

Being a site-built, highly customisable acoustic solution, the fabric wall that could also accommodate all the wall apparatus required for the operation of the AV equipment.
