PARAFON STEP - Creative acoustic ceilings in co-operation with Bornstein Lyckefors

Colour collection PARAFON STEP

 

PARAFON STEP is an acoustic ceiling solution that offers expansive opportunities to create attractive and unique interiors where the suspended ceiling not only serves as a neutral base, but also contributes to the decor of the room and enhances the overall experience.

Paroc has teamed up with the architectural firm Bornstein Lyckefors to develop the PARAFON Step concept. The basic thinking behind the concept is simple. We work with acoustic tiles in various formats and with three different height options. The different heights and geometric forms provide countless possible combinations, while your choice of colour also gives you further possibilities to create your own unique acoustic ceiling.

PARAFON STEP is made from PAROC stone wool, an excellent material for sound absorption with the additional benefit of being completely non-combustible. In STEP we make use of the contrast between the natural rough structure of the stone wool on the acoustic tiles’ visible edges and the smooth surfaces, which further contributes to the dynamics and variation of the concept. PARAFON STEP DIRECT is glued to the substrate and PARAFON STEP FOR GRIDS is made for mounting in suspended grids.
