Soundwave Stripes is a sound absorbent designed by Richard Hutten. Huttenﾒs design of Stripes is characterized by flexibility; a flexibility that means that Soundwave Stripes can be combined in many different ways. This in turn means that each interior where Stripes is used can become unique. The diversity that Stripes offers thereby becomes a useful tool to create interesting and varied interiors.
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.
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.

Soundwave Geo is designed by the well-known furniture designer Ineke Hans. Ineke Hans views Soundwave Geo as a three-dimensional wall decoration similar to the ones which people have always created around the world. The difference is that Geo has a clear function due to its sound-absorbing purpose.
