“We came up with the idea for Hood when we moved to our new studio,” says Petrus Palmér from Form Us With Love. “We needed a flexible light source and sound absorbent above our conference table as the studio is open-plan and with a very high ceiling.”
Hood is an ideal solution for these open plan environments, functioning both as a light source and a sound barrier, helping to create a more intimate space in the contemporary office landscape. Its modular structure means that Hood can grow according to need. “It should be possible to expand Hood in all directions really,” says Palmér.
Hood is made up of three different types of modules in moulded polyester felt: corner, side and top panels, creating a structure that measures from 1200x1200 mm up to 1800x3000 mm at its biggest size. “In principle we should be able to expand on the size of Hood infinitely,” says ateljé Lyktan’s design engineer Cecilia Fahlberg.
Form Us With Love initially developed Hood with ateljé Lyktan’s made-to-measure service Ateljén (or “the studio”) as a one-off piece, but after experimenting with Hood’s potential it was clear that it was going to hold a unique spot in the market place. “It creates an illuminated island within any open space,” says Palmér.
