We love to watch series and documentaries about architecture, design and decoration in our free time. When we take on a job we try to think about the role that our wood cladding and acoustic panels will play in the project as a whole. We mentally recreate the acoustics that our clients want to achieve, we imagine the final design of the whole space and we evoke the play of light and shadow that will make up our wood slat cladding. The following documentaries about architecture help us with this task. They stimulate our sensibility and our ability to perceive the importance of design, proportion and harmony. We hope you enjoy them.
