Much of the new headquarters for Trustpower in Tauranga has an open plan layout, and the potential problems caused by acoustic reflections and high reverberation times in such a large space needed careful consideration. This called for an innovative acoustic solution.
Warren and Mahoney collaborated with T & R Interior Systems and Daryll Pickering from OROQI, to design a chevron pattern that was made to fit into a standard two way black suspended CBI grid. The tiles are unique because the pattern drops below and sits above the grid line to create a dynamic ceiling that catches the light on its peaks.
OROQI is a premium acoustic tile with an NRC of .75. It is made from 100% recycled PET plastic in New Zealand and comes in a wide range of colours and designs that are lightweight and easy to install. The OROQI 3D tiles can be used in a suspended ceiling grid or direct fixed to a ceiling or wall with clips.
The outcome: a unique bespoke acoustical ceiling with wow factor.
OROQI tiles are available in a wide range of standard designs and sizes, but with certain minimum order quantities bespoke designs are also available.
