The Art of Artnovion

Published: Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Artnovion’s beautifully designed and engineered acoustic wood panels have been installed in the Vienna Volksoper (People’s Opera House) with stunning success. Artnovion has combined acoustic engineering excellence with art to create a striking solution which greatly enhances the audience’s experience.
The Vienna Volksoper was built in 1898 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Emperor Franz Joseph I and today stages operas which are immensely popular with both Vienna’s residents and visitors to the city.


The building was initially planned to house a theatre and was constructed without allowing for the acoustic design necessary to deliver a perfect opera performance. As the Volksoper started to offer more and more musical performances and had loudspeakers installed, the ceiling above the gallery proved to be a problem as it created sound reflections. These reflections became a great source of frustration as they caused a reduction in sound quality and lessened the audience’s enjoyment.


The Volksoper management team recognised that substantial audio improvements were necessary and called in Peter Willensdorfer of acoustic consultants, Tonarchitektur. Together with Vienna based Pro Performance, Tonarchitektur decided that Artnovion’s acoustic panels were the best solution.


Artnovion’s Logan diffusor panels were selected for their ability to break up the sound reflections and to give the audience a more even acoustic distribution. In addition, the panels would cancel the unwanted reflections that were bouncing back from the ceiling to the stage. A total of 128 diffusers were installed on the ceiling of the Volksoper, these panels were not only selected for their technical ability, but for their unique design and appearance.


The Artnovion installation has delivered an acoustic improvement beyond expectation and has delighted the management, audiences and performers alike.
Artnovion blends the best elements of detailed design and engineering to offer a selection of products that bring art to the acoustic environment. The panels offer soundproofing by controlling audio levels and improve quality by shaping the way waves interact within a space. Artnovion’s exceptional understanding of the properties of sound waves ensures that the listener’s experience is greatly enhanced. The range of panels include absorbers, bass traps and diffusers which are engineered to perfection as well as being visually striking.
