In Mallorca, Spain, the Llaut Palace Hotel, a new 5 star hotel also had to contend with some difficult circumstances when endeavouring to maintain a beautiful artistic design vision. One of the most challenging elements was creating a ceiling with an inverted pyramid design, inspired by origami and its geometry. This ceiling would create geometric ripples throughout the communal space of the hotel. “We wanted to transmit this sensation of lightness; the element of origami communicates movement and flexibility, expanding the space of the room,” explains Guerrero.
Located in the dining room of the hotel, the architect’s origami inspired artistry demanded a material which allowed the construction of vertices and triangulations as well as having a high absorption coefficient to counteract the highly trafficked space, which didn’t sacrifice on the aesthetic finish.
The adaptability of Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic enabled Guerrero to achieve his elegant and clean design, exactly as he had originally proposed.
