  • Sound Absorbing Wall Panels
  • Tutor: Ville Lausmäe

The sound absorbing panels are designed for use in people’s homes, where there are often unaddressed acoustic issues. The idea draws inspiration from the pattern and texture of tree bark. The wall panels resemble artwork, adding a decorative touch and enhancing the appeal of minimalist interiors, while also addressing acoustic problems. The concept originated from the notion of using materials derived from food, which are easily accessible.

Among the various experiments conducted, rice has emerged as the optimal solution. Through the interaction of different binders, rice becomes a strong and crumbly material, visually resembling the texture of tree bark. The current outcome primarily focuses on the aesthetic appearance and design of the wall panel, while still considering acoustic principles.
