Areas of calm are becoming more and more important when planning rooms. That is why this edition of our newsletter is devoted entirely to room acoustics – and the many possibilities of gaining a bit more peace and quiet with textile solutions.
The Acoustic Divider Vario combines noise reduction with a lot of creativity and flexibility. After a successful launch, we have now made this solution even more attractive – thanks to the enhanced choice of fabrics, new methods of assembly and a digital planning tool for calculating noise levels.
In the Stapferhaus in Lenzburg (Switerland), where culture and science are discussed, the Acoustic Divider Vario plays a key role. It allows the organisers to adapt the room structure and acoustics to the respective scenario quickly and in a variety of ways.
Room acoustics can be so simple: SILENT LIGHT, the new acoustic curtain from Création Baumann, creates a zone with sound absorption in an instant. This makes it the ideal solution for spontaneously setting up a meeting point or think tank in work areas.
MEGACOUSTIC is another novelty in the 2019 collection that is worth a closer look: the special three-dimensional texture impresses with an aw value of 0.7 – a top value for a transparent textile. The flame-retardant curtain opens up new options for designing light and sound in professional settings.
Simon Keane-Cowell, editor-in-chief of Architonic, talked to Philippe Baumann about acoustics, textiles and the SINFONIACOUSTIC innovation. An e-mail dialogue with interesting insights into a subject that is more topical than ever in interior design.
