Sound Proof Styling: Contract Trend

Sound Proof Styling: Contract Trend

This year’s new launches have included an impressive array of imaginative acoustic panelling that double as striking graphic art works.


Following its debut at the Stockholm Furniture Fair last year, acoustic panelling brand Baux returned to the Scandinavian fair this year with a new collection. Working once again with Stockholm-based Studio Form Us With Love the new tiles, made from a mix of wood, water and cement, create large-scale, nature-inspired patterns across the walls. Manufactured in the deep forest of SmÃ¥land in Sweden with zero waste, the panels provide natural insulation, and have moisture-regulating and sound-dampening properties.

At this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, office furniture brand Arper showcased a collection of acoustic wall panels in sharp geometric shapes and poppy colors. Designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, the new Parentesit panels are designed to reduce extraneous background noise and create spaces for quiet concentration.
