Drees & Sommer AG

Place of communication with the best quality of rest

LIGNO® Akustik light in astreiner Fichte für die Firmenzentrale Drees & Sommer AG in Stuttgart

A central communication place for employees and customers has been integrated into the newly designed company headquarters in the form of the so-called “Marketplace”: seating niches and small tables for two people offer space not only for the bar and a long conference table, but also for brief informal discussions and large customer meetings. The multi-folded, acoustically effective oak ceiling binds everything together and ensures – for simultaneous conversations – the best quality of silence.

    Wood type 


    Various wood species are available for the visible layer. For quality reasons, individual wood species cannot be configured for all profiles; for technical reasons, surface treatments are excluded for some wood species.

    Wood type 

    _EI Oak knotless 



    The visible layer is profiled with joints. The code for profiling indicates in millimetres: Element width, strip width (rounded, from/to if applicable) and joint width (rounded) as well as a letter identification for variants, e.g. with chamfered strip edges or with additional height gradation.


    Note: Some profiles indirectly cause exclusions for other configuration options.


    _625-12-4 Slat profile 



    Depending on the type of wood, the optional application of a surface treatment is possible ex works. Individual colour finishes are always sampled for coordination. For elements in individual lengths, colour treatment is limited to max. 5 m length.


    _b0 Untreated 



    The face is subjected to a brushing _gb as standard, which produces a stronger or weaker structure depending on the type of wood and makes the surface less sensitive to scratches.  Alternatively, a smooth sanding _gs can be carried out, or on request a bandsaw cut _grimitated.


    _gb Brushed 

    Room acoustics 


    If the soffit of the element is to have a good sound-absorbing effect, the penultimate layer is configured as absorber _a50g. Otherwise, this layer is configured as a solid wood layer _a0.

    Room acoustics 

    _a70g 70 % Absorber
