Imagine being at the dentist. You are lying down, staring at the ceiling and are surrounded by strange noise from the equipment. Your heart is beating faster. A visit at the dentist is often something you just want to be over with. To help their patients relax, a dentist practice in Sweden wanted something that could, in a positive way, distract and occupy the patient’s mind.

The practice decided to install an acoustic ceiling and to have art printed on some of the ceiling tiles. This proved to be a good idea as some of the unwanted sound gets absorbed by the acoustic ceiling, while the patient’s mind get absorbed by the art.
