For us, the BAUX brand is our perception of what we do, what we stand for, and what makes us relevant. Our mission is to change the world for the better. A conversation between two students excels into brilliance, a business meeting gone right leads to new potential or leaders of nations coming to an agreement that matters to the world – all thanks to restful acoustics in residential buildings, industrial premises and public spaces.

Our first product BAUX TILES was created together with Träullit, a traditional family business, founded in 1946 by Lennart Rääf. Today it is headed by his son Bengt Rääf. The company has since made boards and panels of cement bound wood wool. Wood wool of spruce, a fascinating material, sprung from our nature, joined together with pure cement, provides unique features to any building. Features that provide sound absorbtion, excellent thermal insulation capacity, high thermal storage capacity, proven highly resistant to fire, mold and rot, mechanically strong and good plaster base. The headquarters and factory are located in Österbymo in southern Östergötland
Our second product is BAUX Acoustic Pulp – developed together with scientist and manufactured in our hometown of Stockholm. This time, we had the vision to create an acoustical solution that would be uncompromisingly sustainable in every way— from the resources and materials to the manufacturing process, and the impact of the product at the end of its life. All while achieving the right characteristics for optimal sound absorption and meeting the contemporary design expectations of modern architects and designers.
The factory is located in Stockholm, Sweden.
“BAUX provided a unique insight into the traditional world of construction. Suddenly our heritage became our future.”
“In the face of climate change, enviromental pollution, and excessive consumerism, we as an industry can no longer afford to ignore the part we play. The new BAUX Acoustic Pulp is the result of our deep commitment to this vision.”

Creating the right kinds of spaces for interaction is very important for us. Creativity happens when everything is available and you can quickly meet and discuss ideas. But all this interaction creates noise. Traditional classrooms are often one open space filled with hard surfaces, which amplifies and reflects noise off walls and tables. That means one big space isn’t always ideal. You need to have small spaces where students can meet.
We thought about creating our own pattern for the BAUX design but there are just so many lovely patterns in the BAUX pattern tool, we quickly found something that we loved.
The soft textural appearance of BAUX tiles and their acoustic properties drew us to the product. We really enjoyed the opportunity to adapt colour and design to suit the size and purpose of each room.
The client was very pleased with the results and we’re now using BAUX designs in all their office spaces. Aside from the functional benefits of better acoustics, the BAUX designs are a piece of art in themselves.
Our showroom and office are located in the heart of Stockholm, Sweden. Your welcome to come by at any time – but please let us know prior to your visit!
