Canopy Fitouts are an established Melbourne-based design team making a big impression with their fresh concepts & material choices for the workplace. Their most recent project is a new build in central Melbourne, and utilises Glosswood’s Acoustic Panels. The Canopy team presented Glosswood to the client, who loved the range and wanted to feature the Acoustics in the main foyer. Recently we sat down with Interior Designer Sam Fossati from the Canopy team to get some insight into their recent project.

The Canopy team loved the contemporary look of Glosswood. “The [acoustic] range was chosen for both acoustics and aesthetics,” Sam Fossati from the Canopy team tells us. “Being a smaller reception area, we knew that sound would reverberate around the room very easily. We specified the acoustic range to dampen the noise in the reception – which has proven to be already very effective.” The Square 26x26mm profile was selected for its thin profile. Not only was their positive feedback from the design team, but also the installers. “The fixing carpenters shared how very easy the panels were to install,” Sam says. “This was due to the simple bracketing system and lightweight nature of the timber.”

The Canopy team aimed to create a space that felt welcoming and inviting. With a small layout to work with, a light palette was selected to open up the interior and create the illusion of more space. “With lighter colours it generally makes the room feel a lot bigger, which was perfect for the entry area,” Sam tells us. “In order to match the tones of the timber flooring, we went with Distressed White from Glosswood’s Satin range for the feature wall.” Distressed White has a random distressed finish, and looks exceptional contrasted with the black Acoustic backing. “Glosswood’s range of colours makes it a very easy product to specify,” Sam concludes. “I’m looking forward to working with the range again.”
