The Stockholm based Studio, Form Us With Love, has designed a new range of acoustic panels for Baux after being given the brief to think large. Combining place and geometry, the studio decided to bring chunks of Swedish forest into the interior space using a wide format. The result is five wall patterns, combining 22 colours that follow the scheme of the Scandinavian landscape, in a contemporary play with the outside and the inside.
Following the success of the Baux Acoustic Tiles in 2013, the Acoustic Panel collection introduces a new dimension of grace. The wider panels, measuring 116×53 cm, are built to cover volume, generating a more tranquil effect: “The Acoustic panel collection inspires us to create holistic interiors at scale. By using large patterns, we can integrate empty walls and open planned spaces in a both practical and emotional way.”
The five designed patterns are reminiscent of nature and it is precisely that serene emotional connotation that grows with large measures. Aiming at portraying Scandinavia, creating a landscape of woodland, the acoustic panels transform the atmosphere of any room into a warm, quiet, and beautiful space. “The pattern resembles the view of nature that we are surrounded by. Imagine the scenic view from a train or car window while travelling at high speed through a Nordic landscape— deep blues, dark greens, and earthy browns,” says Form Us With Love. The Baux Acoustic Panels are made from wood, water, and cement, manu- factured in the deep forest of Småland in Sweden. The wood wool comes directly from the spruce trees that grows nearby. The panels have moisture-regulating properties as well as a sound dampening effect— a natural insulation, produced at zero waste.
