PRODUC TS OVERVIEW

59


AKUART was founded in 2006 with the ambition to create extraordinary acoustic solutions with a strong visual appeal. This is still the company’s main aspiration today. Through a strong dedication to functionality, aesthetics and taking responsibility for the future, Akuart strives to make good acoustic design available to the largest possible audience. What started out as acoustic wall art has now developed into a full range of acoustic products / solutions with a changeable canvas, strong sustainability profile and extensive design options including photography, art, graphics, colours, textures, signage and more.

DE S IGN FOR DI S A S S E MB LY

REDUCE — REUSE — REPAIR — RECYCLE — REMANUFACTURE For our Supersonic collection we have incorporated the concept of designing for disassembly as fundamental principles that inform decisions and material choices. This guides us towards circularity and design to minimise waste by examining the supply chain in reverse and choosing components with similar life span, ensuring that products can be maintained, that parts can be recycled and replaced – and finally making disassembly and sorting uncomplicated and worthwhile.

S OURCING R EC YCLE D M AT E R I A L S

PRODUC T A S S E MB LING • AKUART products are processed and assembled at our factory driven 1/3 by solar energy.

• AKUART sources all raw material in as high percentages of recycled material as possible.

PET 50%

ALU 75%

• All raw materials are optimised to minimise waste.

YARN 100%

• Components are bolt on for easy assembly and disassembly.

E ND U S E / DI S A S S E MB LING

• All Supersonic product materials can be disassembled and sorted into the correct recycle bins. • AKUART is working on implementing a takeback-system on all components, repairing damaged parts and reusing non-damaged parts.

IN S TA LL ATION

R EU S E / R E PA IR

• AKUART’s products are easily installed using regular screws.

• All components in the Supersonic collection can be disassembled and repaired. • The 100 % recycled canvas is easy to detach, reuse and change. This prolongs the life cycle of a panel or screen as the designs can easily be updated.

Ambitious Climate Goals – working with the UN SDGs.

Material Transparency

We continuously strive to create products with a clean and functional design, made from the most sustainable components with the largest amount of recycled material available on the market.

“Sustainable transformation is an ongoing journey and we are excited for each step we take.” Iben Garland Sonne, Sustainability Lead at Akuart

/ Aluminium frame consisting of 75% upcycled aluminium scrap, which can be fully recycled after use. / Canvases made from 100% recycled polyester fibres. / Sound absorber made with 50% fibres from plastic bottles recycled in Europe.

For the Supersonic collection we have calculated the full CO2 footprint for each individual product in the entire collection. For example, a 1000x1000 mm Supersonic wall panel emits 72 Kg Co2-e.

The Akuart x KBHavn Collection is a collaboration with Danish design company KBHavn. It is an exclusive and timeless collection of Akuart sound absorbents with changeable canvases fused with KBHavn’s iconic calendar and time management designs. The changeable and recyclable pinnable Akuart canvas ensures that the calendar design can be renewed on a yearly basis without having to exchange the whole panel.

“What makes the Wood — Work collection truly special is that we have designed the magnetic glass writing board as a highly effective low frequency membrane absorber which even

outperforms more traditional porous absorbers in the low frequency range. This we have combined with a Class A acoustical panel.”

Steffen Spangmose, Acoustical Engineer and Product Lead at Akuart

Framed by exquisite oak, the magnetic writing board is a beautiful homage to our proud Nordic design tradition and midcentury functionalistic design. Thanks to our carefully curated range of playful colours, it will match any space, feeling, and demand. And yes, like all AKUART products, the board helps reduce sound reflections from the walls. This low frequency membrane absorber will make the workspace more comfortable and captivating at the same time. / RIGHT ACOUSTIC PANEL The Wood–Work Acoustic Panel is a premium wall absorber.
