Troldtekt® wave wins German architecture prize


Within a short space of time, Troldtekt wave has achieved more international acclaim - its new wave-shaped acoustic panel has just won an ICONIC AWARD from the German Design Council.

Troldtekt A/S’s new Troldtekt wave has been given a warm reception by international designers and architects. In June, the acoustic panel won a Green Product Award. And now, the German Design Council has decided to honour the product with an ICONIC AWARD 2015 in the category Product > Wall, Floor, Ceiling.

Simple and aesthetic
The ICONIC AWARDS celebrate visionary architects and innovative, sustainable products. The jury explained its choice of Troldtekt by describing Troldtekt wave as sculptural wall and ceiling panel whose natural and simple aesthetics harmonise well with many different types of rooms. The jury emphasised that the acoustic panel’s waves create an interesting play of light and shadow without having a distracting effect, while flexible installation options allow a virtually unlimited number of individual design patterns. Moreover, the panel highlighted the fact that Troldtekt wave is Cradle to Cradle-certified.
ICONIC AWARDS are presented in the following categories: Architecture, Interior, Product, Communication and Concept. The awards will be presented to the winners at a ceremony at the trade fair for real estate and investment EXPO REAL in Munich on 5 October 2015.

Proud of international awards
CEO of Troldtekt A/S, Peer Leth, is very proud that the new product has received two prestigious awards in such a short space of time.
“We never dared hope that Troldtekt wave would have its international breakthrough so quickly,” he says, before talking about the product development process:
“The idea for the wave-shaped acoustic panel is not new – the challenge has been to produce it industrially. However, our product development team has now solved this challenge, and we are able to manufacture Troldtekt wave at our existing production facility. Our in-house architect has created the wavy design of Troldtekt wave.

Cradle to Cradle-certified
The acoustic panel is part of the Troldtekt series that is made from wood and cement. It is Cradle to Cradle-certified in the silver category, and boasts the same good acoustic, fire-protective and indoor climate properties as the classic Troldtekt acoustic panels.

Troldtekt wave has also been nominated for the German Design Award 2016 and the DETAIL Produktpreis 2015.

• Troldtekt wave is a Troldtekt acoustic panel with an undulating wave-shaped surface.
• The acoustic panel is Cradle to Cradle-certified in the silver category and has good acoustic, fire-protective and indoor climate properties.
