What’s your secret?
Always work with highest quality.
In today’s hectic environment it is of high importance to address the necessity of creating environments that are soothing for people’s wellbeing. Environments with beautiful acoustic elements is an important key in creating such sustainable spaces.
Core materials that we use are hemp and peat fiber. Interestingly peat fiber is not only a fantastic sound absorber, but it is also antiseptic. In history before penicillin was invented farmers would lay down their sick animals in the peat to heal them, even infants. So, this is truly an amazing material in all aspects.
