The dream conference room

A while ago we recieved an order on more than 500 panels and we couldn't get our hands down. What would the project be and how was it going to look? We had to follow up on the case an make a story from it. Therefore we'll now show you 8-kanten. An amazing conference room placed in Odense, Denmark.


This is 8-kanten


Watch the 8-kanten story

Our first reaction

As we arived at 8-kanten and saw it from the outside we saw this octagon-shaped house and we were a little confused at first. There were still a couple of craftsmen around the building finishing up on the last details - but we were about get a huge surprice.


The wow-effect

As soon as we stepped into the conference room it was like it was bigger on the inside. There was panels everywhere on the ceiling and on the walls and we couldn't help ourselves saying "wow" several times.

A big open space and smaller meeting rooms

The conference room has a huge open space in the middle with hundreds of chairs in the direction of a huge digital screen for presentations for bigger conferences and from there stairs go up in every direction to halls that lead towards smaller meeting rooms with TV screens.

In the big open space there are panels both on the ceiling and on the walls. In the smaller meeting rooms the panels are mounted on the ceiling "only".

Big surfaces created bad acoustics

Melissa tells that before they had the acoustical panels on their wall and ceilings they had some other acoustical plates - but they weren't enough in their big kitchen and dining table so they had to find a different solution. That's when Melissa found WoodUpp and luckily the panels were able to remove the reverberation in the room.


To this Melissa says the following:

We no longer have any problems with reverberation and which is just really great

so now we can have our friends and family come visit and be here all together so that is amazing.

The acoustical panels are a huge hit

It was online Melissa found information about how great acoustical panels can be to remove reverberation in big rooms. Therefore she contacted a few carpenters to hear their opinions about the subject and they immediately said "go" for the idea.


So hereafter we found WoodUpp and ordered colour samples in order to figure out what kind of wood suited our home the best and we fell for the bright sort. We think it's ended up really well and fits perfectly in our home. It gives some wamth and nature in a way that fits in our bright room. So that's really nice.


She used the panels to make the gable, ceiling and a headboard:




Positive response online


After the mounting og the Akupanels the family recieved many compliments on how beautiful the home had become. However, the compliments was not only from family and friends.

Melissa often posts pictures of the gable, wall and headboard on Instagram on her account @m_trentemoeller. She recieves many positive comments from people that praise her taste in interior design.


After we chose to install these panels in both the ceiling as a gable but also in our bedroom we have received really positive reactions. Not just from friends and family but also on Social Media.
