All around the world, architects and designers are using BAUX Acoustic Tiles and Panels in exciting projects for great brands. In a series of newsletters, we aim to introduce you to a selection of projects and the mind masters behind the designs of these acoustic artworks. We simply will call these newsletters Interviews #.
How has BAUX been involved at Ebbe Park?
Interior architects, Arrow Architects & Winell Jern, were looking for acoustic materials for Repfabriken in Ebbe Park. It’s a large-scale installation; a wall that covers the length and height of several floors in the building. BAUX is excellent at reducing noise reflections in these kinds of large open spaces, so it was an effective addition to the space.
BAUX has also made a visual impact right?
Yes, the designers were looking for a material that had functional and aesthetic properties. The beauty of BAUX is it does both. You can fix acoustics and BAUX products give you the opportunity to create something fun and playful, which benefits everyone working in the building.
Is acoustic design something we should all think more about?
Yes we think so! Noise can be so distracting. The trend for open workspaces has meant that there’s a greater risk that noise affects productivity. In our experience, a quieter building means less stress and more focus. Entry spaces and receptions are often open and airy spaces. Good acoustic design can make a big difference to the first impressions visitors make when they enter your building.
