Swarm - Acoustic office partition

As a modular, self construct and free standing system, office spaces can now be divided into an array of almost infinite configurations to suit any size or footprint open plan office environment. The system can be assembled to a desired length, height or linear configuration to divide an open plan footprint while offering an incredible acoustic presence within the space. The system can also be disassembled and rearranged as a day two scenario which allows for an ever changing office landscape if necessary without having to employ costly, invasive onsite contracting work to demolish and reconstruct partition systems. “SWARM” would also mitigate the need to redesign or perform any civil MEP works if the office landscape had to und...

BAUX CURVE PANEL

During the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2018, we introduce the two new acoustic panels, BAUX Panel Arch and BAUX Panel Curve. To bridge the gap between classical and modern we had to explore past the linear. To shape vast decors for monumental interiors, auditoriums and stretching hallways we needed to go in all directions. The result? Two new panels with a fluid design capable of twisting and turning the linear grids of the five original panels.In early 2015, we introduced the original BAUX Acoustic Panels.Our idea – to shape something timeless, functional with endless combinations.The linear grid made it possible for us to create a modular system, retaining the sequence of design in both large and small environment.When we got the i...

OPUS Business Park Helsinki – A Unique Acoustic Space

Commissioned to design the reception areas for the newly renovated OPUS Business Park in Helsinki, interior designers Niina Sihto and Emma Keränen converted an empty, grey tiled space into a warm, welcoming reception hall. They eliminated sound reflections from tiled floors and huge glass windows by installing a number of BAUX designs. The texture of the wood-wool tiles contrasted the hard surfaces and helped to soft the space. The colours have also had a huge impact. The client wanted a warm feeling on entering the building, so Nina and Emma chose soft reds that complemented the client’s brand identify. The inspiration for the designs came from our BAUX design tool and sample images on the BAUX website. The construction process was quic... More

KPMG Copenhagen – Scandinavian Style

On moving to their new offices nestled in the newly renovated Nordhaven district in Copenhagen, KPMG wanted to create a space that represented their Nordic business values. Lead designer Francisco Sarria, took his inspiration from the dockside location. The idea was to bring the location indoors. Large-scale BAUX designs fill the reception and waiting areas with visions of sea and sky. It’s here that visitors get their first taste of the relaxed Nordic style of business. The geometric BAUX shapes meant many possibilities for graphic expression. Everything points up and to the right – forwards, towards innovation. Two twenty-meter tall BAUX designs give the feeling of being outside, in the harbour on a summer’s day. Wood fibre textures an... More
