The modern world is a noisy one. Be it a residential or commercial room, sound levels influence how users experience a space. The architecture and design industry is becoming increasingly aware of acoustics and how it plays an integral part in the design process for buildings and their interiors.
Whether it’s an open office that needs to handle both confidential conversations and socializing between coworkers, or a compact restaurant where guests like to mingle, designers need products that are able to absorb sound waves bouncing around the room. The latest acoustic technologies are far more advanced than seen in years past and include options that both look and sound good - proving that valuable acoustics don’t need to be noticeable.
In this latest Curios installment, you’ll find examples of how companies are making the shift to appeal more to interior designers by creating acoustic panels, carpet, tile, lighting fixtures and textiles that cater to custom styles and current market trends. Offering sound control and noise reduction, these acoustical selections should help you successfully tackle your next interior project while making it both easy on the eyes and the ears.
