At the leading design fair BDWest for the hotel industry in California, Schotten & Hansen's acoustic panel was awarded with the prize “Best product of the show” in the architecture materials category.

Schotten & Hansen presented innovative products for the hospitality sector together with the partner company Wood Concepts from Los Angeles at the fair. The focus was on 9mm thick renovation boards, boards with footfall sound insulation, acoustic solutions, holistic room concepts as well as on maintenance of Schotten & Hansen floors and the associated “life-cycle costs”.

Two of our products made it to the finals for this year´s “Best product of the show” award: the KD9 with the unique Schotten & Hansen shrunk surface, but only 9mm thickness and the acoustic panels. Finally the acoustic panels convinced the jury because of their functional and aesthetic attributes and prevailed over innovative novelties of other companies. The micro perforation which is incorporated in the Schotten & Hansen wood surface is acoustically highly effective and still visually appealing in design.
