Polyester acoustic panels

Soundwave was designed by Teppo Asikainen to help control the sound levels in busy interiors. Made from recyclable molded polyester-fiber, which is the same material used in the auto industry to reduce noise levels in car interiors, the undulating wave form and the felt-like material of the panel helps reduce noise levels by absorbing the mid/high frequency range.

Swell and Scrunch panels are to be used as lightweight sound absorbers in the upper frequency range (500 Hz and above). The Diffuser panel provides not sound absorption but sound diffusion: in the proper position, it will improve speech intelligibility and even improve privacy in open spaces. The Luna panel is a Class A broadband absorber with extended efficiency in the low frequency range (150-500 Hz); and is therefore very efficient in reducing background noise.
