Architextiles is series of sound absorbing textiles with a woven 3D structure. Designed by Aleksandra Gaca and manufactured by Casalis, the Architextiles collection was developed through an innovative combination of both craft and high tech elements, in a seamless process to create the panels. The textile panels, produced using sustainable materials, deliver two core features: decoration and noise reduction; the 3D texture of the woven fabric enables the panels to absorb sound waves more efficiently than flat textiles. Thus contributing to a more muted environment.
Architextiles are currently available in several patterns and customizable colours and compositions. There are three variations of Casalis Architextiles: Cello, Slumber and ONDO. Cello are woven in a mixture of 30% merino wool, 29% virgin wool, 24% polyester, 16% cotton and 1% elastane. Architextiles Slumber are woven in a mixture of 31% merino wool, 22% PA, 15% cotton, 13% kid mohair and 1% elastane.
