The airport terminal is such important public space, its design needs to be expressive and interesting, yet it also has to create a positive ambience for passengers who spend hours waiting for the next part of their journey. So materials used throughout airport terminals need to look beautiful, yet functional and fit for purpose.
Decor Systems are very proud to be involved in a number of recent airport renovation projects. Our products are chosen to be featured in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth airports because of their stunning visual, their acoustic performance and the quality of craftmanship that went into the products. Decor Systems products do not just look good, they are also functional.
Here are the quick summary of the three airport projects where our products were specified and installed.
1. Perth T1 Terminal DecorArti acoustic wall
There is nothing more original than having an acoustic wall created from your own unique design. And that is exactly what has been recently installed at Perth Airport T1 Terminal, made from Decor Systems DecorArti Panels. The bespoke sculptures and perforated wall called “From the skies” were designed by Penelope Forlano at Forlano Design, with artwork text by Doolann Leisha Eatts, a Whukjuk/Piblenman/Nyungah woman elder.

2. Sydney T1 Airport DecorSlat acoustic ceiling
The T1 improvement programme will deliver a world-class experience for passengers, visitors and staff. The phase 1 of the project, Pier B of the Departure Terminal was recently finished and opened. Cox Architecture specified acoustic DecorSlat panels by Decor Systems to be used on the building ceiling for a number of reasons, including the product’s smart contemporary linear look, its perfect white painted finish and its acoustic properties which are a prerequisite for a space with high public traffic such as Sydney airport.
