0405, Scala Acoustic Panel
A plane of wavy material hangs from the ceiling over the table. It is made from gray compressed felt. The wave shapes and the felt material absorb sound waves. This acoustic panel helps diminish noise and make the sounds of speech or music more crisp. The wavy shape is inspired by corrugated iron panels, a common building material in Iceland. Designed by Anya Sebton for Abstracta.
