October's amazing Installation of the Month

Congratulations to Richard at the team at Niche AV in the UK for this beautiful installation.

Artcoustic speakers are used throughout the stunning property, with SL 40-30 4-2s and Impact 1 subwoofer in the open plan kitchen, SL C-2 Soundbars under the TVs, and SL 6-3s with Multi SL Soundbar, Targets and SL Architect 2-1s used for the Media Room's Dolby Atmos system.

Careful planning and thought went into the design of the audio visual systems across this amazing home, and the team from Niche AV exceeded all expectations.

The SL C-2 Soundbar is used as a stereo speaker under the TV, together with an Impact 1 subwoofer - simple, elegant, high quality audio.

Niche AV 13.jpg

Using Artcoustic throughout the property ensures the same quality levels are maintained in each area. The open plan design means that often multiple zones are playing together, and as all Artcoustic speakers are based on the same building blocks, the sound from each is incredibly similar. More powerful models are used for more fun in certain areas.

The Media Room is designed to be a very comfortable and inviting place to settle down for the evening watching the latest box set, movie or sporting event. More powerful Artcoustic speakers are used here to deliver the full dynamic range required, whilst also working perfectly with the room design.

The bar area, with stunning views out across the gardens, uses a SL C-2 Soundbar underneath the TV, and an Impact 2 subwoofer. When drinks are following and the party starts, this discrete system will play high quality audio at over 100db.

The iconic SL Multi Soundbar is also available in a single source mono or a dual source stereo version, making it ideal for use as a powerful wide dispersion centre channel, or as a high-end stereo setup. It is designed to be run from a zone of Crestron, Control 4, Savant, AMX, Elan G etc. for high quality multi-room performance with the same discrete aesthetics as the SL Multi Soundbar.

Luxavo and Cormac take Installation of the Month this August

Artcoustic Cinema, by Tech Fit, Ireland (1).jpg

Congratulations to Cormac and the team at Luxavo in Ireland for this superb cinema installation.

Artcoustic speakers are used throughout in this amazing Dolby Atmos 5.2.4 system, with Spitfire 16-8s used for the LCR, 2 x Control 3 subwoofers, SL4-2 for the side and Architect SL 4-2s overhead. 

Artcoustic's design team worked closely with Luxavo to ensure the cinema was technically accurate. The screen size carefully chosen for the viewing distance and projector brightness, with the correct loudspeakers locations and dynamic range. This system will play full reference 105db (+3db headroom) easily. The result is a system that is effortless, accurate and dynamic. And great fun!

Well done guys, great work.

Though Luxavo are based in Ireland, and the client is Irish too, the project was actually in Geneva, Switzerland. Managing a project of this scale from distance brings it's own challenges, but Luxavo planned and executed it perfectly. 

The beautiful room design feels very relaxed and comfortable, with Tom Dixon tables, a large L shaped Poliform sofa and the contemporary bar at the back - complete with a walk in wine store and draft Guinness on tap, naturally.

ARTCOUSTIC INSTALLATION OF THE MONTH - MAY 2018

Congratulations to Baljinder, Dally and the whole team at iSmart Home Control who are this month's winners of Installation Of The Month! 

Very creative thinking has enabled a superb, high performance cinema to be installed into this formal lounge, disappearing from view when not in use.

The client's brief was a particularly challenging one as they didn't want to see it, but also wanted excellent quality. By using SL Multi Soundbars installed vertically for LCR, and colour matching them to the painted walls, they blend in beautifully. SL TargetsSL Architect 2-1s and Spitfire Control 2 subwoofers built into cabinetry complete this 5.2.4 Atmos system. It delivers all the excitement of a serious home cinema when in use, and almost vanishes during the day.

An acoustically transparent drop down screen completes the magic

iSmart+Home+Control+(2).jpg

The SL Multi Soundbars were colour matched to Farrow & Ball 'Light Blue', and are very discrete installed vertically as left, centre and right speakers.

PART OF THE FURNITURE AT NOMA

NOMA-2374.jpg

It is with great pride that we share news of our latest home at the world's most renowned restaurant, NOMA.

Artcoustic was selected alongside some of the design world’s leading players, and  were chosen for their Scandinavian craftsmanship, customisable design and high-quality sound performance. The collective of distinguished brands includes Danish Architecture firm, BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), Interior Design Studio, David Thulstrup and flooring specialists, Dinesen.

NOMA-2469.jpg

Having packed up just over a year ago and left to create their yearly pop-up edition in Mexico, René Redzepi and the Noma team have returned to a brand-new site in Copenhagen.

The main architectural structure, designed by leading global architecture firm, BIG, is made up of seven buildings creating a small village, each area built from a unique material to complement its specific function.

NOMA-2405.jpg

Highly acclaimed interior designer, David Thulstrup, was brought in to add a homely/cool vibe to the interior space, whilst still reflecting NOMA's heritage. The main areas are separated into a lounge/bar area, where Artcoustic speakers are featured, and a dining area with space for up to 40 diners. The kitchen is completely open plan, to enhance the atmosphere and allowing the customers to see their food being prepared, creating a more intimate, homely environment. Artcoustic’s customisable design options allowed the team at David Thulstrup complete design freedom when specifying the speaker colour to match the interior space.

NOMA-2393.jpg

FEATURED PRODUCT

Two of the 40-30 SL 6-3 models feature in the lounge/bar area of the new space, closing the circle of senses and providing a one-of-a-kind ambience.

The 40-30 is an entry to mid level configuration of our high sound pressure level SL Series. It works perfectly for home audio/surround sound systems and commercial installations, where the design and flexible customisation is paramount.

From wine cellar to cinema!

Artcoustic Installation of the Month - November 2017

Congratulations to the whole team at Rayleigh HiFi for this amazing installation!

Challenged with a very unusual room, an unused part of a wine cellar beneath the house, the team at Rayleigh HiFi managed to design and install a superb cinema system for the clients.

The budget was quite tight to achieve this room, but using the Artcoustic SL HSPL Soundbar as an all in one LCR, together with SL Target and an SL Impact 1 subwoofer, the client enjoys a very well considered, well designed and great sounding system.

IOTM_November_2017_Rayleigh_HiFi-2.jpg
IOTM_November_2017_Rayleigh_HiFi-6.jpg

The Artcoustic HSPL Soundbar sits just below the screen when in use, delivering left, centre and right channels from this single speaker. When the system is no longer in use, the screen disappears into the ceiling mounted case, retaining the original feel of this wine cellar.

Artcoustic pioneered the concept of an all-in-one LCR (Left, Centre and Right) soundbar as far back as 1997.


Featured Product

Artcoustic_HSPL-Soundbar-SL_GREY.jpg

HSPL SOUNDBAR

The HSPL Soundbar SL is a high sound pressure level version of the Artcoustic Multi Soundbar SL and has been specially designed and engineered for large format LED and none-perforated projection screens and in general for application where very high sound pressure levels are required. It matches the larger Artcoustic speaker models, such as the SL 12-6 and the SL 24-12.

As well as the the Multi Soundbar SL, the HSPL version can be used as a single LCR loudspeaker, or for more powerful systems used as a single mono centre channel.

Best Home Cinema Award Winner 2017

IOTM_October_2017_Philharmonic_AV--3.jpg

Artcoustic Installation of the Month - October 2017

Congratulations to Phil, Steve and the whole team at Philharmonic AV for this superb cinema installation!

Artcoustic speakers are used throughout in this amazing Dolby Atmos 7.2.4 system, with Spitfire 4-2s used for the LCR, and SL Architect 2-1s for the listener level surrounds and overheads. 

This technically superb installation was acknowledged at last month's CEDIA Awards, winning in the 'Best Cinema - under £40K' category.

IOTM_October_2017_Philharmonic_AV--2.jpg

The speakers used in this award winning installation are the Spitfire 4-2 and the Architect SL 2-1. The Spitfire 4-2 is our entry level cinema speaker, capable of 115db output, with a sensitivity of 95db. This makes them very easy to drive, and offers a superb option for system where the budget is tight. 
 
The Architect series is used in both the ceiling and the walls for this installation. They have the same tonality and timbre as the rest of the Artcoustic range, but with a different installation option. The Architect SL 2-1s (used here) are often installed in ceilings, but can also be installed into walls to reduce the depth that would be part of using the SL Target - it's on wall equivalent.

Barr x Artcoustic

BARR.jpg

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

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.

We met some fantastic new faces, and have some great potential projects in the pipeline.
If you didn't make it, you can see pictures of the stand space below:

Artcoustic_CEDIA_US_2017-9084.jpg

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 SL Target Mini, SL 24-12 TAAA and CPH-10 Passive.
