FIVE SKYFOLD WALLS SHOWCASED AT SWEDISH EXHIBITION CENTRE
A truly stunning project, the Gothia Towers Exhibition Centre in Sweden benefits from the installation of five, state-of-the-art, fully automatic, Skyfold vertical-rising partitioning walls. Dividing the cavernous space, the row of Skyfold walls can be individually lowered at the press of a button, forming an exceptional acoustic barrier in minutes.
The Skyfold team recently selected Gothia Towers to showcase this advanced partitioning system, welcoming high-profile architects from across Europe to a presentation by the project architect, Olaf Hallberg of Abak Arkitektknotor. The talk was followed by a tour of the redesigned exhibition hall and the chance to see the magnificent Skyfold walls in action.
“Skyfold is a remarkable proposition and it really is quite jaw-dropping when you first see one unfold from the ceiling cavity,” said Julian Sargent, group managing director of partitioning experts Style, sole distributors for Skyfold in the UK.
“The largest Skyfold at Gothia Towers measures nearly 15m long and is over 4m high when in place, so you can imagine how impressive the line of five walls is. The exhibition centre now has incredibly flexible function space, allowing various rooms to be created to match the needs of the moment.”
