DORMA Hüppe is a partner for the new acoustic symposium relay which has been organised by the well-known architecture magazine DBZ from Bauverlag. At the four panels, which took place in Frankfurt, Munich, Dortmund and Hamburg, the central question of how inconvenient acoustic conditions in rooms can be improved was explored. When the room acoustics are factored into the planning process early on, it is possible to achieve optimal values for noise levels, reverberation time and sound reflection with acoustic comfort and sophisticated design. Again and again, this was the tone in the lectures from the partners involved.
The topic was introduced by keynote speeches by acoustics specialists such as Dr. Christian Nocke of Akustikbüro Oldenburg and Dr. Horst Drotleff.
In addition, the panels were backed by guest lectures by well-known architects. The last two panels took place on 31 May at the Dortmunder U and on 14 June at the Empire Riverside in Hamburg. The event in Dortmund was able to getProf. Eckhard Gerber, Gerber Architekten Dortmund, as a speaker. In Hamburg, Corinna Kretschmar-Joehnk, JOI-Design GmbH interior designers, spoke to the participants. The two panels in the previous year were no less prominently attended. At the event at the Radisson Blu in Frankfurt, star architect and designer Hadi Teherani inspired the participants and at the panel in Munich it was Sebastian School, partner at KSP Engel architects.
Between 60 and 120 planners and architects attended each of the panels. "From a marketing and sales perspective, the support provided by the partners was ideal since in all four locations we met in a focussed manner with interested planners who were looking for up-to-date and practical information about architectural details, innovative materials and design possibilities in room acoustics. Time and again, we were able to introduce and present the appropriate solutions from DORMA Hüppe," summarises Jörg Tholen, Product & Marketing Manager for MW EMEA, who provided support for all of the events.
Alongside DORMA Hüppe, the partners were the two companies Odenwald Faserfabrik GmbH, a made-to-measure ceiling panel and substructure supplier, and Toucan-T GmbH, a manufacturer of carpets for the property segment.
