Decorative wood strips and slats have gone from being a curious, unusual component to being present on the ceilings of a large number of offices.
On the one hand they have an indisputable aesthetic value. On office ceilings, decorative wood slats provide an orderly, modern perspective of the space they crown, making the rooms seem larger than they really are.
In addition, they serve to discreetly and elegantly hide spotlights, downlights and other ancillary components, like sensors and speakers. Also, depending on the model of wood slat panels chosen, it can be used to improve room acoustics. This is the case of the acoustic system designed by Spigoline, the Spigogroup division devoted to manufacturing decorative solid wood slats.
Here are 5 good examples of decorative wood strips and slats in office ceilings. All are included in Spigoline’s solid wood slat cladding catalogue:
The OHIM European Agency in Alicante
For this project Spigoline Grid System wood slats were used with a ceiling mounting clip installation system. The chosen model of wood slats was the 6-30-35-30 which has 6 30 mm wide wood slats and a separation of 30 mm between slats. The grids are 35 mm high, 360 mm¡ wide and 3000 mm long. The wood slats were finished in solid obeche wood stained with flame retardant B-s2, d0 varnish.
The Autodesk offices in Barcelona
For the design ceilings with ceilings made with solid wood slats at the Autodesk offices we manufactured and supplied wood slats (model 4-30-70-55 of Grid System). This model features 4 slats of wood in each module which are 30 mm wide and 70 mm high, with a separation between components of 55 mm. For this work the solid Ayous tinted finish was chosen with B-s2, d0 flame retardant varnish.
