Rockfon Partners with Archival Studies for Reusable Exhibition Display Concept

August 15, 2023

The modularity of the multi-use exhibition display stand allows for clean disassembly and reuse across events, an effort to support the transition towards a waste-free future.

To showcase the newly launched range of acoustic design solutions, Rockfon partnered with the Copenhagen-based architecture and production house Archival Studies for a new sustainable exhibition stand concept.

First unveiled at the Workspace Expo in Paris, France, in April 2023, the exhibition concept is designed for reuse and will continuously make appearances at forthcoming trade fairs and exhibitions, including the Workspace Design Show in Amsterdam, Netherlands, upcoming in October 2023 (view the Rockfon Events Schedule here). 

As part of the exhibit, attendees can touch, feel, and smell the different elements that make up the new range in a raw material library, including volcano stone – the primary component of Rockfon solutions – and the leaves, Alpine meadow flowers, and moss that make up the tactile surfaces of Rockfon Senses acoustic wall panels.

The exhibition display stand is a modular wooden structure crafted from CNC-milled laminated plywood. The wood’s surfaces change over time, gaining imperfections, and coming to embody the innovation and experiences enjoyed at industry events.

By the end of each fair, the lightweight panels are disassembled, packed, transported, and stored until the next scheduled event.

There's a lot of waste created in the trade show industry. With this modular reuse concept, we hope to inspire others to take a similar approach.
