True to the motto "As diverse as life", is how the Swiss business hotel "Säntispark" opened for business in the summer of 2014 in picturesque surroundings. With a total of nine flexibly designed conference rooms, the conference section of the hotel can accommodate up to 350 delegates. The modern ceiling solutions by durlum match the special requirements of the conference rooms, as do the events for individual customer needs. Optimal acoustics and a pleasant climate were equally important, as was high-class design.

The renowned architects of the Carlos Martinez architects office selected the elegant LOOP® metal ceiling, a ceiling which combines function and design in an optimal manner. The offset rows of round openings in the white LOOP® ceiling create a modern shape and ensure that the individual elements with their soft, rounded contours blend together well. This gives a joint-free ceiling image from another world. The five millimetre deep-drawn openings additionally lend the metal ceiling a three-dimensional character.

Hinged and movable, the S7 KS metal ceiling acts as functional drop ceiling and its dark colour supports the three-dimensional effect of the LOOP® ceiling. Perforated and backed with acoustic fleece, the S7 room system also provides climatic well-being in the conference rooms in addition to acoustic comfort. Fitted with chilling elements from Lippuner Energie- und Metallbautechnik AG on the backs of the panels, this provides an even temperature distribution and comfortable room climate throughout the conference rooms.

The LOOP® metal ceiling is mounted to the S7 functional ceiling with magnets and is secured via securing cables. In combination, the two metal ceilings create a single unit which meets the specifications for a stylish ceiling without affecting the flexibility and function of the conference rooms. The POLYLAM® vertical baffles used for the exterior and interior of the hotel additionally underline the luxurious atmosphere.
