CASE STUDY 2: IKEA JOHOR | IKEA CHERAS | IKEA PENANGCreating the Ideal Retail Experience for a Leading Home Furniture Brand

One of the most well-known home furnishing brands in the world, IKEA needs no introduction. Over the course of a few years, IKEA has expanded its stores fourfold across various locations in Malaysia, namely with IKEA Tebrau in the south, IKEA Batu Kawan up north, and IKEA Cheras in central KL. As a global brand, these IKEA stores needed ceiling solutions that aligned with their brand vision and design ideals.

The Solution

IKEA’s dining and food preparation areas needed products that helped maintain excellent hygiene levels and provide a welcoming, comfortable environment for patrons to enjoy their meals. KNAUF Ceiling Solutions Armstrong Bioguard Plain ceiling tiles were the ideal choice for the food prep area, where antimicrobial performance is needed. For the restaurant dining areas, KNAUF Ceiling Solutions Armstrong Dune ceiling tiles and KNAUF Ceiling Solutions Armstrong Axiom Classic vertical trim were applied.

The Results

The Armstrong Bioguard series ceiling tiles’ anti-microbial and anti-mould performance makes them the go-to choice for spaces that require superior hygiene levels, as the tiles help keep the food prep areas safe from specific strains of bacteria. Water-repellant and washable, the surface is easy to clean and maintain, thus achieving ISO Class 5 Clean Room performance. The dining hall area sees large crowds daily, so good acoustic performance is needed to maintain comfort for all patrons. On rainy days, the metal roofing structure increases noise and disturbs the ambience, making the space less constructive for conversations and communication. To overcome this problem, Armstrong Dune ceiling tiles with Armstrong Axiom Classic vertical trims were installed above all M&E components for their superior sound attenuation and sound absorption capabilities. The high light-reflectance of these white mineral ceiling tiles also add to creating the bright and welcoming ambience IKEA is known for.


For any establishment that wants to keep customers coming back for more, creating a welcoming ambience to dine and gather is key. Our client needed a unique ceiling solution that fit their design vision without compromising on guests’ comfort.
