Coloured ceiling tiles with good sound absorption allow people to focus on work, conversation, and collaboration as they provide a great indoor climate for productivity and comfort.

Colour affects all aspects of the design, theme, and personality of a building, making an interior space visually striking. You can achieve this by choosing from the multitude of coloured solutions available from Knauf Ceiling Solutions.

Granite, steel, green marble, copper, oak, sandstone, brass and concrete, natural elements or refined ones, all carved and revealed in their natural beauty by craftsmanship.

The colours are available across our mineral, metal and wood wool floating ceiling and wall solutions for open plenum spaces, from baffles to canopies to wall absorbers solutions—as well as our THERMATEX Alpha Colour mineral ceiling tile—, so that designers can create multi-sensory experiences through sound and colours.

Improved well-being can result from a room designed with people in mind. Colourful ceilings stir emotions and alter the tone of a room.

Lighter colours make a room feel brighter, prompting people to be more proactive. In contrast, darker colours will bring a sophisticated and intimate atmosphere to a space, creating a feeling of cosiness and warmth.

Make a Lasting Impression


Choose a black ceiling to transform the appearance of a room, providing sophistication and elegance.

An intimate and cosy atmosphere results from the lower light levels, creating a space that allows people to fully immerse themselves. Black ceilings make a statement, transforming the conventional into a high-end, modern look.

Floating elements, such as canopies and baffles play with light and shadows, and create drama, putting the focus on where it needs to be.

When you enhance the darkness, you emphasise the light—creating a powerful contrast. A black ceiling works with industrial, contemporary or urban styles, and remains a timeless option. It’s a choice that will make a lasting impression on those who experience your space.

Black ceilings are not only easy to maintain, but are available in a variety of hues and materials to meet the acoustic demands of any space. Make a bold choice that will enhance your space, with black ceiling solutions.
