Just like your significant other, studios and recording spaces need to be treated right. If you’re looking to deviate from the stock standard charcoal coloured foam offerings, there’s a few sassy options out there to tame room reflection.
Note that I said room reflection. These aren’t sound proofing options—rather they’ll help stop sound from bouncing around off the walls creating uncouth reflections.
1. Abstracta Triline
Swedish company Abstracta are all about acoustics and sound absorption. And gorgeous aesthetics.
Their Triline wall series are three dimensional wall panels. Using a triangular shape, the panels stop sound waves bouncing back at you.
Whack them up using hidden mounting bars. They can be hung vertically or horizontally and come in standard and custom colours.
2. Bla Station Gingko
Bla Station is another Swedish company whose acoustics and aesthetics are on point (as they say in the eyebrow world).
Their Ginkgo sound-absorbing panels reduce ambient noise and echoes in the room. Constructed using hot-pressed 100% polyester form felt, they are easily mounted on the wall using a magnetic fixing system. Attractive and well hung.
There’s so many colours and shapes that can be created. Check out their planner to try some on for size.
3. DeVorm Onde
DeVorm’s Onde PET felt acoustic panels are pressed from PET felt. You can arrange them separately or overlap them to create a unique composition.
The felt is made from recycled PET bottles. They’re durable and have great acoustic performance. Plus you can boast to your mates about how you’ve saved the environment.
Attach them to walls using a magnetic system.
4. Hey Sign Silent Flower
German company Hey Sign are all about the felt. Their product line includes a bunch of free standing and wall mounted acoustic products.
Floral is no longer limited to nana’s fave talc or hipster headpieces. The Hey Sign Silent Flower wall panels are super-cute as well as sound-absorbing.
And with 41 colours and multiple sizes, they’ll add a bit of sass to any studio.
5. Casalis Cello
Casalis’ collab with Polish designer Aleksandra Gaca brought the Cello range to life.
Cello features a superbly woven fabric that not only offers good acoustic absorption but is very easy on the eye as well.
This fabric can be used for acoustic panelling hung on walls or from the roof. There’s also free standing options available. They also look as snug as an oversized cable knit jumper.
