More experiences in Viborg

Tinghallen in Viborg has undergone a major modernisation and expansion, adding to the quality of event experiences held in the building.

Starting with the attractive arrival area outside the building, visitors are greeted by pleasant materials and modern design. The foyer has been doubled in size to make room for a spacious bar and a large lounge area. A large and inviting space that is airy and bright. The focus has been on honest materials and especially cohesive, peaceful surfaces which, like Troldtekt, have a living materiality.

Troldtekt acoustic panels have been chosen, with a combination of white ceilings and grey wall cladding to above door level. The walls are clad with Troldtekt line design in grey ultrafine – an elegant and precise wall solution that flows together into a cohesive whole and particularly frames the bar area.

Troldtekt provides acoustic properties as well as an architecturally interesting surface. The inviting foyer leads the audience to the large hall, which has been made even larger and is suitable for a variety of events. Black Troldtekt acoustic ceilings have been installed inside the hall.


The Tinghallen foyer also provides access to a brand new, smaller, hall, which houses the Paletten music venue. The aim here was to create a contrast to the neat and timeless foyer. With the help of Morten Varano, who specialises in interior design for venues and bars, this has been eminently successful.

The room design uses materials and colours that embrace visitors and immediately set the mood. Bottle green is the dominant colour, together with a warm wood tone. Geometric elements such as circles and areas with Troldtekt rhomb in three shades have been added, creating a three-dimensional effect. Troldtekt rhomb has been used on both walls and ceiling in the bar area, resulting in a unique cave effect.

The acoustics have obviously been important in the interior design of this room, and large wall surfaces clad with black Troldtekt panels are part of the solution. The room also features exquisite lighting – one of Morten Varano’s specialties.
