SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Knauf, a manufacturer of acoustic design products is calling on Australian foodies, consumers, architects and designers to help improve the sound quality in Australian restaurants.

Knauf, a world leader in acoustic ceiling tiles and plasterboard, has launched a campaign to highlight the importance of great restaurant acoustics.

The Dine Hear campaign is encouraging restaurant-goers to nominate a favourite restaurant that, despite its great food and service, can sometimes be just that little bit too noisy.

“Imagine having to yell at your date across the table because it’s the only way they can hear you, or ordering the vegetarian risotto and they bring you out the beef instead?” says Stephanie Olsen, Knauf’s Senior Product Manager.

“With that in mind, the Dine Hear campaign is about improving the acoustics of great Australian restaurants. Does great sound matter? Yes!” Olsen says.

Backed by a series of short videos – see them at – the campaign aims to involve multiple sectors of the Australian foodie and design community to help make the case for great restaurant acoustics.

Consumers are encouraged to nominate a great restaurant that could be improved with better acoustics and be in with the chance to win one of three iPad minis.

Designers and architects who nominate a restaurant that would be improved with better acoustics; could receive one of 50 complimentary $200 dinners for two.

Design professionals who submit sketches on how the acoustics could be improved could be awarded the Knauf Dine Hear Acoustic Designer 2013, $5,000 prize.

“Great sound matters,” Olsen says. “And Knauf is on a mission to prove it.”
