Soundwave® Ennis

Product description

Through an exclusive collaboration between the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation (US) and Offecct (SE), the historic Ennis textile block is now repurposed in the state of the art acoustic panel, Soundwave® Ennis.

Ennis is one of two products in the Offecct Edition collection launched 2018. As an architect, Frank Lloyd Wright always sought to embrace technology to improve the environments where we live our lives, whether that was by opening the office landscape to natural light in the Larking Building (1904) or creating a continuous view of the art for visitors to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1959). Would he have been able to foresee the constant stream of sounds we are exposed to in an age of wireless technology, this would undoubtedly be yet another aspect of his work.

Disturbing and unwanted sounds affect our wellbeing and needs to be addressed when creating an interior today. That is why Offecct produces acoustic panels which are used to improve the sound in public and private environments. When Frank Lloyd Wright used a system of square concrete blocks to create the textile block houses (1923-24) in California, he gave his building component an astonishing artistic quality which is also the aim when Offecct together with architects develop acoustic panels.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s mesmerising pattern for the concrete blocks used to build the Ennis House, the last remaining textile block house, has served as futuristic backdrop in movies and made an imprint in history books. Now, the Ennis pattern has been applied on Soundwave®, Offecct’s trademark acoustic panels made of recyclable moulded polyester, and will be used to improve the sound environments in past, present and future architecture.
