Stockholm 2015: Swedish studio Form Us With Love has extended the range of colourful construction materials offered by its brand Baux to include acoustic panels – the second set launching in Stockholm this week (+ slideshow).
Following the launch of BAUX last year, Jonas Pettersson, John Löfgren and Petrus Palmér of Form Us With Love have continued their collaboration with entrepreneurs Johan Ronnestam and Fredrik Franzon.
The team has now added to its collection of colourful acoustic tiles made from wood wool – a mixture of spruce wood, water and cement – and has used the material to create larger panels.
The BAUX products will be presented at this year's Stockholm Design Week, where Oslo studio StokkeAustad is also presenting acoustic panels.
Form Us With Love designed each panel to measure 116 by 53 centimetres, allowing users to cover larger surfaces more efficiently than with the smaller tiles.
These are designed to be used in combinations of colours and patterns as decorative wall features in homes, offices and public spaces.
"The acoustic panel collection inspires us to create holistic interiors at scale," said Form Us With Love. "By using large patterns, we can integrate empty walls and open planned spaces in a both practical and emotional way."
The patterns include check, horizontal, vertical, diagonal and quilt, available in a selection of 22 colours and chosen to echo Scandinavian landscapes.
"The pattern resembles the view of nature that we are surrounded by, imagine the scenic view from a train or car window while travelling at high speed through a Nordic landscape – deep blues, dark greens and earthy browns," said the team.
Wood wool used to form the panels is manufactured with zero waste in the forests of Småland, Sweden, where local spruce trees supply the timber.
To demonstrate the product, the team built a wall in the heart of the woodland and covered it with panels in green and blue hues.
