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 #.
This week we’ve been chatting with Ana Gillich, an interior architect at UP.GREAT about the project Heimstaden in Berlin.
How did you first come across BAUX Acoustic Pulp?
At UP.GREAT, we have an eye for new brands and innovative products. We were introduced to BAUX through the BAUX Representative in Berlin from MBSY International. I was following BAUX on Instagram and when I discovered BAUX Acoustic Pulp I knew I wanted to use it on one of our projects. We were able to get some samples from Timur to show to the client and I just fell in love with the texture and tone of the material. So did the client, and we ended up using it extensively on the project!
Was sustainability a part of your decision to use BAUX Acoustic Pulp?
Heimstaden has a vision to create long-term solutions for their customers’ lives, so using sustainable materials was something that fitted well with their vision and the Scandinavian lifestyle and aesthetic. Products like BAUX Acoustic Pulp are amazing because they are functional, beautiful, and sustainable. The planet can only benefit from that. Sustainable products are the future.
How did you use BAUX Acoustic Pulp to improve the interior space?Functionally BAUX Acoustic Pulp has helped to create the right acoustic environment. Noisy offices can be really stressful and that affects people. Visually, the material brings textures to the space. The patterns add interest and lighting really shows off the shade and contrast in the folds. Each BAUX Acoustic Pulp design is like a work of art in the room. Tonally the material was the perfect compliment for the Heimstaden brand identity.
What would your dream BAUX project be?
I would love to work with BAUX Acoustic Pulp again because I just love everything about the material! Maybe a bold large-scale project where we could render huge walls. It would be amazing to see the subtle variations of patterns in a large open space.
