Acoustic panels FLY – Sounds of Science FLY – Sounds of Science sound absorbers are all tested and certified with sound absorption class “A“ (the highest) at a leading international research institute in Sweden called SP. They consist of approximately 80 percent totally organic wood fibre and 20 percent pure polyester. No glue is used either in the materials or in the assembly process, which makes the panels very easy to recycle. Keywords in the design of the absorbers are ‘function’, ‘style’ and ‘affordability’. The sound absorbers have no hard frames or backsides, which is an asset because such things effectively prevent sound absorption. The exterior of the panels is made from natural fabric (cotton and linen) which comes in four different colours, and two different designs. Sizes vary from very small to very large, depending on the customer’s need and space. FLY – Sounds of Science was designed by textile designer Monika Järg in collaboration with Sounds of Science.

Window cover, room separator, shade WOODEN LACE The wooden lace is inspired by extra fine knitted Haapsalu lace shawls: their ethereal leaf patterns, fragility, rhythm and logic. The wooden equivalent is contrasting – its fragility is only visual, amplified through the various ways the light plays on large surfaces. The ornament has its idiosyncratic rhythm, just like its source of inspiration, the lace shawl. The design logic of the pattern panels is limitless; one only has to make sure there are enough joints between the different details on large surface. The panels can be connected by means of various fastening systems. Material: birch plywood, natural and colored Colors: natural, white, black Size: detail 200x327
