Rockfon does digital for DocuSign Dublin HQ

Helping to achieve the client’s architectural ambitions and acoustic challenges, Rockfon acoustic ceilings were specified in DocuSign’s EMEA headquarters.

American owned DocuSign is a leading global company specialising in technology which enables organisations to manage electronic agreements through a variety of platforms and devices. The firm’s new cutting edge 9,290 sq m tech hub and EMEA HQ, fitted out by mac group, occupies a prime waterfront site at the heart of Dublin’s ‘Silicon Docks’ and can accommodate up to 800 employees. To help meet the client’s architectural ambitions and the acoustic challenges posed by the mix of interior spaces, Rockfon acoustic ceiling systems are fitted throughout.

In designing its new headquarters, DocuSign wanted to break down barriers and find new ways of working to empower employees. Open plenum ceilings, polished concrete floors and warm timber express the space’s raw, contemporary architecture where built rooms located around the core provide a buffer from the main circulation and workspaces. Breakout and active spaces are centralised providing an interaction point for DocuSign staff to meet and collaborate.

Crina Toderic, Senior Interior Designer at Henry J Lyons Architecture and Interiors, ‘…a number of meeting rooms had one solid wall with the remaining three being glazed. Rockfon Mono Acoustic was installed for its high sound absorption. Being completely seamless, the system allowed us to easily integrate with the rest of the interior aesthetic, maintaining a good balance between design and acoustic performance.’

Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic is a unique product which combines a seamless ceiling with high performance characteristics, previously thought only possible with modular suspended ceilings. The ceiling tiles are installed and completed with acoustic render creating a smooth-white, monolithic surface which provides high light reflection and light diffusion, reducing the need for artificial light.

Flat or curved, direct or suspended installation, the system allows for integration of all services, and offers Class A sound absorption to significantly decrease echo and reverberation.

Rockfon Tropic® acoustic ceiling tiles are used throughout thoroughfares and communal spaces. Like all Rockfon ceiling tiles, Rockfon Tropic is made using a core of naturally occurring, volcanic stone wool. The range features Class A sound absorption, high light reflectance, excellent fire performance (A1, EN 13501-1) and superior resistance to bacteria, with no visible deflection in high humidity. The lightweight easy clean panels are simple to transport and install, saving installation time and money.
