On the so-called Constitution Hill in Johannesburg, South Africa, the city’s old prison was rebuilt and converted into a music and recording studio. The prison was a notorious apartheid prison, which was also where Nelson Mandela was held during the Rivonia trials. Today well-known artists like Alicia Keys make guest appearances here. 200 square meters of the sound-absorbing textile SILENCIO® by PONGS® now ensure perfect acoustics. The textile wall covering was installed with the DESCOR® wall and ceiling system. The South African company Robin Sprong Wallpapers not only took on the installation but also the impressive design using shapes and colors.
SILENCIO® in size 5 by PONGS® harmonizes the room sound and at the same time impresses with its unique three-dimensional surface. Thanks to bright colors and detailed digital prints, SILENCIO® becomes a decorative element for walls and ceilings, but also for room dividers and pieces of furniture.
