After several years working with acoustic materials we discovered this new material, Lanisor, which has absorption features and it is also a material easy to work with. Following acoustic office projects we decided to add the acoustic feature to our furniture. What inspired us to use acoustic was the noise inside a nursery school as well as its softness which makes it safer for children in case the get hit by it.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It is designed with an acoustic material which is light and more comfortable. These make it perfect for children use. It is thought to be used in a nursery school and as it is light, children can place it where they want without any difficult. Its main purpose is the acoustic feature because it would minimize the environment noise.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It is children furniture made of acoustic material which make it perfect to be used in nursery schools because this material is not only going to minimize the noise in the room but it is also light and soft which contributes to the children security and safeness.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started in January 2017 and is currently in a prototype phase.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
It is made of the material LANISOR and it is computer controlled machine centers.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Its key property is the acoustic feature. Noise penetrates the LANISOR surface and diffuses in the material. As a result of the friction on the fibre surfaces, the kinetic energy of the noise is dissipated as heat energy. The highly-compressed bres support this effect much more than conventional materials. The product dimensions are 2500mm x 1250mm.

Our experience in this field of acoustic projects has showed us that there are a great lack of acoustic in the field of lining and furniture. This is what lead us to look for solutions in public environments.
