Acoufelt welcomes world first: WoodBeQuiet™
Maybe this is a world first?
WoodBeQuiet™ is the synchronisation of visual beauty, superior sound absorption and environmental sensitivity. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Three become complete in one; past, present and future aligned.
Aesthetic + Acoustic + Enviro-sensitive; 3 technologies unite.
We welcome you to WoodBeQuiet™.
Wood is beautiful – Be Aesthetic.
It is warm and comforting, classical and elegant, uncomplicated yet sophisticated. Like rolling green hills on a blue-sky day or the sun setting over a mirror still ocean, the grain pattern of wood is calming to the eye. It connects with us inside, and resonates with our inherent desire to be connected with nature. Today, as we see a decline in the use of harsh industrial materials, there is a trend emerging, a welcomed return, to the classic beauty and warmth of wood.
Wood is noisy – Be Acoustic.
The use of wood in our interiors contributes to sound reverberation, creating an environment that is unpleasant to the human ear. As we create spaces to ultimately serve the people within them – this often removes wood from interior design plans. Once again, we are faced with a compromise between acoustic and aesthetic priorities. But what if wood could be quiet?
WoodBeQuiet™ removes the compromise between acoustics and aesthetics; allowing for design that caters to the ears as well as the eyes. Through our QuietPrint™ capability, the surface fibres of each acoustic plank are coloured with precision, ensuring air-gaps in the porous material remain open to absorbing noise. In effect, we have a surface with the warmth and beauty of wood, yet it is quiet.
“Would” is intent – Be Enviro-sensitive.
Climate change, deforestation and plastic pollution are the biggest environmental problems facing humanity today, making it more important than ever to design with intent. According to Euromonitor, over one million plastic bottles are brought into the world every minute. WoodBeQuiet™ is made from recycled PET material, such as plastic bottles, which would otherwise end up in our waterways to a devastating effect. WoodBeQuiet™ is about converting waste into unique pieces of design innovation. To complete the circle, each plank is also 100% recyclable. This is a reflection of our commitment to sustainable products and environmentally sensitive design. Past, present and future aligned.
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.Aesthetic + Acoustic + Enviro-sensitive.
That is WoodBeQuiet™.
Acoufelt is all about making quiet™. World class thought leadership in acoustics drives our approach to problem solving, which results in an increasing number of industry specific innovative solutions. WoodBeQuiet™ is revolutionary in alleviating the practical issues associated with using wood in design, with the added benefit of superior acoustic performance and the use of converted recycled plastics. The Acoufelt holistic approach means we find ways to eliminate compromise; our solutions allow you to design for the ears as well as the eyes.
