Acoustic panel system
Design: Teppo Asikainen
Soundwave Swell was the first panel model of the Soundwave acoustic panel family. Its core values lies in its function, without compromising with the look. The piece has a very strong personality and acts as a kind of 3D wallpaper giving the room the right aesthetic feeling and acoustic at the same time. The Swell panels are designed to be used as lightweight sound absorbers in the upper frequency range. They are well suited to eliminate disturbing reflections of environmental voice sounds, telephones and computer disk drives etc. They can also be used to improve privacy in an open work area such as a modern office space or a restaurant. Material: recyclable moulded polyester fibre. Measurements: 58,5 x 58,5 x 8 cm.
Swell Diffuser panel provides sound diffusion rather than absorption. Correctly positioned, the diffuser panels will improve speech intelligibility and even improve privacy in open spaces as the speaker does not need to talk loudly in order to be heard.
Material: 100% PET, semi-transparent white. Measurements: 58,5 x 58,5 x 8 cm.
Each panel in the Soundwave series is designed for a specific acoustic purpose. The wall panels can be combined in different ways to meet the needs of almost any room or environment.
The Museum of Modern Art MoMa (New York) has included the Soundwave Swell panels in the Design Collection.
