The climate is changing So must the architectual design industry
Buildings are the single biggest global emitter of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions by sector.
Half of the energy used in the construction of new buildings is devoted to extracting materials and products.
Waste is a crime. Embrace your inner pragmatist and celebrate materials that do more with less.
Ways to Go Enhancing individual wellbeing
Originating from the corporate design industry, our founders understand the importance of creating affordable products with the power to become an integral part of the design intent while enhancing individual wellbeing through performance and colour.
With the power to influence mood, elicit a feeling and tell a story, colour is integral to the development of our acoustic materials.
Sustainability At the forefront of environmental performance
Dematerialisation, upcycling and life cycle management are the foundation in the product development of ARCHISONIC®’s high-performance acoustic absorbers. Instead of extracting new material, the product relies on the upcycling of single-used plastics with a positive carbon footprint.
The complete ARCHISONIC® product range has been LEED accredited and Cradle to Cradle Certified™. Due to its flexibility in application it offers the design community limitless possibilities to address acoustical challenges.
ARCHISONIC® uses 88 post-consumer plastic bottles* for every square metre of finished material. The shredded bottles are melted into a viscous molasses and the colour is added to grant no wastage during the process. The molasses is released through a spinneret and cooled. Recycled fibres are brittle, and the felting process is very delicate.
ARCHISONIC® is manufactured in the same traditional way as natural wool felt. In order to achieve the stiffness of the product after felting, the material is baked at 300°C (572°F) to crosslink the fibres naturally without any glue or any other additives.
At the end of the life cycle we apply circular design principles by turning the material into solid boards to be used as solid building material for various building applications in replacement of wood.
