1510, Parentesit Acoustic Panels, 2015

Round panels and square panels are wrapped in yellow and gray wool fabric. Designed to hang on a wall, these acoustic panels absorb waves of sound. By preventing echoes from bouncing around the room, acoustic materials control the overall loudness of the room and also make the sounds of speech more crisp and intelligible. Designed by Lievore Altherr Molina for Arper.
