Sustainable sound insulation

Pioneers in the field of acoustic materials and eco-conscious production: We visited Création Baumann.
Beautiful new work environments: The trend for open-plan office structures continues. Large open offices however go hand in hand with acoustic problems. Sound absorbing textiles can contribute significantly to achieving a good surround sound in interiors. Création Baumann now beautifully unites functionality with exacting aesthetics. With the new printed acoustic textiles, the textile specialist from Langenthal in Switzerland positions itself afresh as a competent problem solver within the sector of interior shade systems and functional textiles.
The new semi-transparent acoustic textiles in three different designs control on the one hand privacy and on the other, sound. “All three acoustic textiles are creatively united by the theme of peace and calm”, says Eliane Ernst, the product manager at Création Baumann. “The entire creativity of our design team flowed into the visualisation of the yearning for peace within today’s office concepts”. All three designs are based on landscape motifs – at times dominant at others under stated and imperceptible. The highly functional acoustic textile “Printacoustic Mountain” features a strong, majestic motif: Hatched lines depict a mountain range. The mountain scene rises in grey on the curtain at the window; its summits are covered in snow. “The lines have all been hatched by hand”, explains Eliane Ernst. The design is available in dark grey on white and in beige on white.
Another work of art at the window is “Printacoustic Horizon”. The textile transmits with an almost meditative design a feeling of peace. In the blue version, the fine moiré-like colour transitions from blue to white suggest the sea, whilst in the brown version they are reminiscent of dunes. A distant horizon directs the look into the distance. Like a blurred instant picture of nature “Printacoustic Moment” lets time stand still for a moment – evoking the early morning dawn in green-yellow and the evening twilight in pink and grey. An interplay with movement and blurriness.
Acoustics and aesthetic in harmony. The highly functional textiles bring a moment of peace into today’s work environment. On request, customised individual designs for acoustic textiles can be produced. In the “Iconic Awards 2017: Interior Innovation”, the Printacoustic collection was singled out by the German Design Council for the “Best of the Best” prize.
