Look & Listen, a new sound responsive exhibition at the recently opened Sto Werkstatt gallery in London, explores "the often unnoticed, yet vital role acoustics play in our experience of place." Designed by The Klassnik Corporation, the exhibition offers a variety of "sonic experiences" which encourage the visitor to focus on the audible aspects of architecture. It creates a unique set of environments built using Sto’s range of acoustic systems, "utilising the perfect balance of design flexibility and technical leadership the acoustic materials offer." The installation also demonstrates the materials‘ capabilities in reducing reverberation and promoting clearer sound.

Amy Croft, curator at Sto Werkstatt, and Doug Haywood, artist and curator of the exhibition, believe that "London is awash with terribly noisy interior spaces where we are expected to socialise, work, learn or create. Working with Tomas Klassnik, we aimed to facilitate and trigger experiences that reflect on how we feel and understand sound; how it reverberates off certain materials, causing that terrible cacophony of shrieks in busy bars, and where it is absorbed, offering the potential for a blissful learning environment in schools."

Sto Werkstatt, 7-9 Woodbridge Street, London, is open Wednesday to Friday, 10am-5pm (or by appointment).
