DECORATIVE SOUND ABSORBING PANELS RIETVELD
RIETVELD is a large-scale wall mounted acoustic light fixture.
The design is a configuration of four overlapping rectangular elements, three flocked Basotect sound-absorbing elements and one light element that casts a pleasant diffused light on the wall. The balanced proportions and the possibility to provide the panel in different colour combinations enhance the design as a modern wall sculpture. The fixture can be fitted with the light element in up or down orientation. By combining several fixtures adjacent to each other, making use of the optional connection panel, it is possible to optimise the acoustics in spaces with long walls.
The architect Gerrit Rietveld was one of the founders of the Dutch art movement ‘De Stijl’, which in the nineteen twenties of the preceding century was at the start of the modern architecture as it is still practiced today.
