Post Tower Bonn/Germany

Rossoacoustic® panels and ceiling sail absorb noise in the Post Tower in Bonn. With a height of 163 meters and 40 storeys, the “Post Tower“ designed by Helmut Jahn accommodates the corporate headquarters of Deutsche Post World Net. Inside the architecture which is characterized by its consistent use of glass, 2000 people work at open workstations flooded with light. Translucent Rossoacoustic® insulating panels ensure effective sound absorption and create a pleasant acoustic atmosphere inside the offices. They are used as window shades, ceiling sails and flexible space dividers. All the employees appreciate and enjoy the considerably improved acoustics of their personal working environment. An acoustic assessment by the „Fraunhofer Institut für Bauphysik“ (Fraunhofer institute for building physics) verifies the efficacy of the Rossoacoustic® materials used in the Post Tower.
