Knauf AMF’s Heradesign aids wellbeing at Cambridge At the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at the University of Cambridge, Heradesign acoustic ceilings and wall absorbers from Knauf AMF were chosen as part of the vision for Saunders Boston Architects who wanted an organic, raw aesthetic featuring exposed services and uncamouflaged building materials. Heradesign is a popular choice for specifiers who want to produce a less processed, simpler aesthetic. Research shows that connection to the natural environment can improve overall wellbeing. Heradesign is manufactured from sustainable wood-wool sourced from PEFC and FSC certified forests. Its naturally textured surface offers a sense of comfort helping occupants feel in touch with nature.
