For many people lunch is an important break in the working day and an opportunity to relax. The canteen in a modern office often has the task of strengthening the organisation and increasing the feeling of community amongst staff in relaxed surroundings.

Acoustics
  • It may be that there are certain colleagues you only meet at lunchtime. This makes the canteen a place for informal communication.
  • In addition to general conversation, there is also the noise of cutlery and crockery that must be dampened in order to make the mealtime enjoyable and relaxing.
Ecophon's suggestion
  • The more people eating at one time, the greater the need for sound absorption. This requires sound absorption class A.
