                  The Children’s Place Retail Stores chooses
           illbruck’s HARMONI™ Ceiling Tiles as store standard

MINNEAPOLIS — illbruck Architectural Products‘ HARMONI Ceiling Tiles have been

installed in 35 Children‘s Place retail stores in North America. HARMONI has been

selected as a component in the company‘s ceiling specifications and will be installed in

all new stores and any of the retailer‘s 629 stores that are remodeled.

       ―HARMONI Ceiling Tiles complement the overall atmosphere we want in our

stores — child friendly and whimsical. The suspended ‗cloud‘ feature and dimensional

‗plaid‘ texture of the tiles supports the shape-oriented architectural elements in our stores,

designed to appeal to children‘s fascination with shapes,‖ says Michael Dubiel, director
of store design, The Children‘s Place Retail Stores, Inc.

       ―We wanted a look that was out of the ordinary. We were attracted to

HARMONI‘s unique aesthetics,‖ says Dubiel.

       In addition to its aesthetic appeal, HARMONI offers a high level of acoustical

control, which makes it ideal for noisy, open environments such as retail stores, corridors,

offices, retail listening rooms, conference rooms, ballrooms, dining rooms, and home and
movie theaters.

        ―Many retailers neglect aesthetics when they select ceiling applications by

choosing standard fissured ceiling tiles. They might be surprised to learn that they can

choose a product that has architectural and design appeal as well as one of the industry‘s

highest noise-reduction ratings,‖ says Joerg Hutmacher, business unit manager, illbruck

Architectural Products.

       HARMONI Ceiling Tiles have a tegular edge and are available in two patterns

that can be used independently or in combination with other illbruck ceiling tiles. The

Vista style has a smooth, flat design that is ideal for a clean sophisticated look. Vista

tiles also can be used as a perimeter ceiling application. The Tartan style is a softly

sculpted pattern. HARMONI tiles have a Hypalon® coated surface for added durability

and easy cleaning with a damp cloth. Color choices include white, black, gray and

custom colors. The tiles are lightweight, easy to install in standard drop-in grids and

have a noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of 0.90.

       illbruck Architectural Products manufactures a broad range of attractive ceiling

tiles, wall panels and room acoustic products for commercial applications, including

SQUARELINE® Metal Ceiling Tiles, WHITELINE™ Ceiling Tiles, CONTOUR®
