    reKustik is a result of a project where the aim was to reapply recycled PVC material. The product is a modular sound absorption panel that is able to absorb two different range of sound frequencies. The PVC pellets are formed to absorb a wide frequency of sound, where as the wooden side is formed to absorb a narrow frequency using the principles of Helmholtz's resonant absorber. Read Less

Ever wondered where old industrial plastic waste goes? No where! This is a project in cooperation with Stena Recycling AB in Sweden where we aim to reapply the material that they recycle from discarded cables. What lies underneath is a simple idea to create a flexible sound absorption solution using the material.

Thanks to the underlying sound absorption principles the product will be able to absorb different sound frequencies on its respectives sides. The modular design of this concept also allows for adjustments in size and functionality, making the concept easy to tailor for different user environments.

The product is a modular sound absorption panel that can be built into a changeable size in a puzzle-ish manner. The dark side of the product consists of the recycled material on which the project was based, this side absorbs a rather wide range of frequencies(designed for absorption of ambient sound frequencies) while the wooden side absorbs a more narrow range (dimensions are fitted for typical speech-frequencies). 
 
The project is currently awaiting publication so there should be more information available soon. Until then, check out the promo right now:
