BARR X Artcoustic


Restaurant Barr is the latest culinary project from the renowned NOMA chef, René Redzepi & Thorsten Schmidt (restaurant Malling & Schmidt). Barr draws its inspiration from the eating and drinking traditions of the North Sea. The name Barr is an old Irish word for “crops” and an old Nordic word for “barley”.

Designed by world-renowned Norwegian Architect Firm, Snøhetta, Artcoustic was chosen as the preferred speaker due to the brands high-quality sound performance and ability to completely customise the speakers to fit the design requirements of the project. Senior Interior Architect at Snøhetta, Peter Girgis, was able to specify the exact paint colour, enabling us to deliver customised, colour matched speakers for the entire restaurant. 

The space has been divided into a dining area, where Target SL speakers feature throughout, alongside a bar area with a more powerful set-up, including Diablo SL speakers and an Impact 1 Subwoofer. Barr is located at the iconic waterfront space which, until recently, was home to the famous NOMA.



Artcoustic cinemas receive two awards for Best Home Cinema at CEDIA Awards 2017.

Philharmonic AV were awarded for Best Home Cinema within the category of under £40,000 alongside Pyramid AV who took home the award for Best Home Cinema in the category of £40,000 - £120,000.

“We are very proud of our dealers for the outstanding projects they have created using our loudspeakers and to have been recognised by an awarding body of such high status within the home technology industry. These are exactly the kind of awards that excel the Artcoustic brand to the next level and something that we have been working towards for many years" - Patricia Ljungberg, Co-Founder & CEO.

Exceeding expectations for this year’s venue, the awards ceremony was held at the famous Warner Bros Studio London, giving guests exclusive “behind the scenes” access to ’The Making of Harry Potter.’ The perfect venue to celebrate the best of design and innovation in home technology.

Congratulations to all our dealers who were nominated and awarded!



We would like to thank everyone who managed to visit us during CEDIA expo in San Diego from 5 - 9 September. CEDIA Expo brings together more than 20,000 home tech pros and 500+ exhibitors to the leading event in smart and home technology.

The design of the stand space is part of the latest 'refresh' of the look and feel of the Artcoustic branding. This space and show was really a perfect opportunity for us to strip it right back to basics, showing the products in the most honest way, re-introducing the collection and highlighting the clean, minimalistic and refined Scandinavian design ethos. We also introduced the latest model in the Architect SL range, the 2-1 PAS, along side very recent launches including Target Mini SL, SL TAAA and CPH-10 Passive.

We met some fantastic new faces, and have some great potential projects in the pipeline.
