Masdar Institute of Science and Technology is the world’s first graduate-level university dedicated to providing real-world solutions to issues of sustainability.
The institute is located in the Masdar City in Abu Dhabi and is powered by renewable energy and supported by the cutting edge of technology - providing students with a unique opportunity to live and learn in a true “living laboratory” environment.
Soft Cells were chosen as the acoustic ceiling solution, as they allow easy access to all the service channels behind the panels. Furthermore, Soft Cells are in line with the sustainability requirements and goals for Masdar Institute, which are higher than average.
We liked the idea of a complete system that provides visual satisfaction and flexibility in one acoustic solution.
