Artnovion’s new Flow acoustic panels deliver improved acoustics and give a striking appearance to any room. Indeed, they would not look out of place in a science fiction movie set. The Flow panels are hybrids that combine an acoustic core with a carefully calibrated diffuser. This duel functionality breaks away from the traditional parameters of acoustic design and creates new paths to solve excessive reverberation and uneven sound fields.
The panels’ acoustic cores are formed by strategically interweaving acoustic foam with Helmholtz resonators over a sealed air cavity to deliver maximum performance. The parallel slats are designed to break-up incoming waves with a uniform reflection pattern to create homogenous sound fields.
The most striking aspect of the Flow panels is the design possibilities they offer. Their parametric form (a trending architectural style, and unique to the acoustic scene), creates a pattern that flows along a room’s walls, morphing and unfolding according to your point of view.
Made from a selection of solid woods, with a range of colour options, the Flow range of panels has been designed to ensure minimal environmental impact.
Speaking on the launch, Artnovion’s CEO Jorge Castro says, “Sound is an audacious and powerful living element. An element that shapes the perception of our universe and embraces our senses. Curious about this elegant interaction I have nurtured a passion for sound ever since I can remember. Driven by the challenges of unravelling the mysteries of sound, I have been traveling through an extraordinary life journey of studying, imagining and creating acoustic innovation. Artnovion has become my life’s mission, the canvas I created to share this journey with you.”
