Soundwave Bella is an acoustic panel designed by the Danish architectural office 3XN. The panel was designed for the Bella Sky Hotel in Copenhagen and fits well with 3XNﾒs architectural project in its entirety.
Soundwave Sky is designed by Marre Moerel who got the inspiration for the sound absorbing panel from the silhouette of cities, in particular that of New York, but the pattern can also be seen as an abstraction of nature. The panels have a regular, rectangular form. When placed horizontally a straight line is formed at the top which is then broken into slightly angled horizontal lines. The pattern reflects New Yorkﾒs grid of streets and can also be seen as an enormous mountain range from a birdﾒs eye view. Vertically the pattern is transformed into skyscrapers or primeval rock formations. The sound absorbing effect can be varied depending on how the panel is mounted. Vertically placed Sky reflects the sound back and forth. Horizontally place it instead absorbed the sound.
Bits wall can be freely combined to create different pattern formations. Using a triangular shape not only produces an aesthetically attractive look, but also effectively breaks the sound waves, which makes a better acoustic environment.
Creating Flo, Karim Rashid was inspired by sound waves and digital data. Rashid believs that people today live in a very digital world mentally. We need to catch up with experiental design in the physical world to create a balance.
The innovative Aircone is based on the successful Airflake, a sound-absorbent partition with a snowflakeinspired design, which was the first product designed by Stefan Borselius in collaboration with Abstracta in 2006. Unlike Airflake, Aircone has a simple graphic design.
The sound absorbing panel Soundwave Pix is designed by the French designer Jean-Marie Massaud. Soundwave Pix provides architects with the possibility to create unique rooms by offering the option to combine colours and forms in different ways. Soundwave Pix complements the sound absorbing function with the potential of esthetic variation in terms of the colour and form options.
