Troldtekt, the well-known Danish manufacturer of wood wool acoustic ceiling and wall tiles, is inviting students of architecture and design to submit creative and original concepts for new uses of the wood wool product. Proposals do not have to be just about acoustics but rather innovative and unusual ideas.
The Competition, to be judged by several well-known architects and others, offers a 5000 euro Award for the best concept.
The 2010 winner, an architectural student from Copenhagen, won the first Troldtekt Award for his novel idea of Soundbubbles – hanging coloured globes of wood wool designed to create interest and improve the acoustics of large rooms with hard surfaces, such as schools, swimming pools and commercial buildings.
The Competition has been widened to include international students because of Troldtekt’s increasing visibility throughout Europe. Students are invited to register for the Award by 1 April with a submission deadline of 1 May 2012. For the full details, visit click here.
