For the cruise terminal building in Portsmouth, there was a requirement to soften the very industrial ceiling space in this annexe area, as well as improve the noise reverberation when passengers were dropping off and picking up their luggage. 

We designed a series of 24 no. triangle forms in three different sizes which are hung throughout the space. The Reef Sails form part of our interior product range and are manufactured using an Acoustis 50 fabric, which is not only acoustically absorbent, but also has a high fire standard rating and cleans well. 

The integral frame of the Reef allows the structure to be hung like a kite from drop cables, and positioned in any plane. We modelled up the space first, to ensure a perfect design and fit for the 24 sails.
