A collage of old and new

When Danske Bank was outfitting their new headquarters they wanted to collaborate with the Danish artist Ruth Crone Foster, as their curator had seen some of her other collages from the ‘fractured’ series.

The interior of the headquarters is inspired by the colors of the famous painter P.S. Krøyer and his paintings from "Skagen Strand" (Skagen beach). Given the brief, and learning more about the story behind the building, Ruth created a color palette and art direction for this custom acoustic collage.

The individual ‘fractures’ in the collage showcase scenes from Aarhus, the city where the headquarters is located in, as well as brand values of Danske Bank.

Bespoke acoustic art panels

Ruth’s process started with her visualizing the composition on pieces of paper and then redrawing them digitally before they were printed and laser-cut on 20 mm acoustic panels that were glued together. The designs are printed directly on that acoustic panels that can be contour cut in any format.
