Modular Acoustical Carpet System

 

Inspired by our own use of FLOR carpet squares in the “Hava Nagila” exhibition, we are currently working to design and fabricate a modular acoustical wall panel system for our contribution to Interior Design’s DIFFA Interface Event this fall.

The system is comprised of three dimensional units, pentagonal in plan, which tessellate variably. See 1:48 model below.

Tile mock-ups

Each unit will be constructed out of a  standard FLOR 19.7″ carpet square, which is then cut, scored, and folded accordingly. We have assembled several mock components, pictured below.

The installation at the Interface event will demonstrated a sample coverage of approximately 6 feet of wall. However, ultimately the flexibility of the system means each unit can infinitely tile and be arranged to accommodate a variety of spaces.

Hava Nagila Sound Domes

 

We’ve begun fabrication on the seven custom-designed sound domes for the “Hava Nagila” exhibition. Each sound dome is comprised of twelve unique ACP pedals CNC routed and scored. The scoring is not only aesthetic, but allows for additional material flexibility when bending the ACP into its final parabolic form.

Hava Nagila: Sound Domes

 

For the exhibition, “Hava Nagila: A Song for the People,” we will be constructing seven custom-designed parabolic sound domes. The sound domes will feature an etched patterned exterior and a mirror interior surface.

Above is a collection of sound dome prototypes we created at a 1:12 scale exploring etching patterns, edge treatment and the overall shape of the parabolic form.

The sound domes will be constructed out of aluminum composite panel which has been generously donated by Nudo.

The photo above, of a 1:1 sound dome prototype we developed in our studio, shows the interior mirror finish of the dome and how it reflects the colors, images and people throughout the space.

Hava Nagila: Carpet Modules

 

We’ve begun fabricating carpet modules for the exhibition, “Hava Nagila: A Song for the People,” opening on September 13th at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. To make the modules, which vary in size and depth, FLOR carpet tiles are trimmed, scored, and folded around MDF frames which will ultimately be mounted to the walls and ceilings of the exhibition.
