Case Studies / 3D Pixel
From Tiles to Panels and now 3D Pixel. The new edition of Baux acoustic panels, 3D Pixel, is designed by Form Us With Love as a continuation of a functional and beautiful range. Introduced this week, is a multi dimensional collection of sound absorbing tiles, presented in a moving visual by artist Andreas Lübeck and musician Daniel Wallberg, a.k.a. Smutskatt, one of Sweden’s most creative beat makers.
Baux is an entrepreneurial venture, revisiting the traditional Swedish building material Träulit, transforming its anonymous functional range into beautiful pallets of colours and forms. Now launching it’s third collection, Baux 3D Pixel, adds yet another way to better control the sound environment and make walls come to life using tactile layers of colourful wood wool.
Baux 3D Pixels are made from of the same sustainable materials as Baux Tiles and Panels – wood, cement and water. The difference is the possibility to work with three dimensions, so it’s even easier to design unique sustainable acoustic designs for any space.
‘Acoustic panels are foremost used to improve sound quality but we felt that most of our audience wanted a more expressive dimension. Baux tiles, panels and pixels fill a different type of design gap, a way where architects and interior designers could be more involved,’ says Jonas Petterson co-founder at Form Us With Love and Baux.
A year ago Baux Co-founders, Form Us With Love, Petrus Palmér, Fredrik Franzon and Johan Ronnestam identified that something could be done with the configuration of sound panels. By doing so, they managed to add a creative and fun element to a rather stagnated field. When looking at the competition, its clear that Baux is bringing something new to the table, with tiles and panels already installed in places like Google offices, EF Education, Stella McCartney, Barclay Card and Volvo.
‘We are in an era of contemplation and we all agreed that there is time to not dismiss things that work, but actually change them for the better. The functionality of sound absorbing is great but usually pretty dull. There is something about seeing all these Baux patterns being born, it is organised very neatly and become beautiful individual installations, reflecting on the time we live in’ says John Löfgren Co-founder of Form Us With Love and Baux.
BAUX, is founded by Form Us With Love, Petrus Palmér, Fredrik Franzon and Johan Ronnestam, on the belief that building materials should be surprisingly functional and remarkably beautiful. BAUX designs, produces and markets functional construction materials that meet the contemporary expectations of architects, engineers and builders – without compromising tomorrow’s safety and environmental standards.

We’re blessed with a vibrant office culture, with co-workers from around the globe. Hands on individuals who share our common goal of not only producing relevant, beautiful design but helping our collaborators to work, produce, function and think more effectively.
Periodically we open the studio to a batch of selected international applicants for an intensive period of workshops with the aim of finding one or two who’ll remain with us as interns for two times five months.
They’ll be immersed wholeheartedly into Form Us With Love, as part of our design team. It’s not uncommon that this internship develops into something more permanent, with our current team boasting many ex-interns as full-time colleagues.
We are growing, with a steady recruitment every year, the studio is now looking to further expand the team. With new projects, from both existing and new International clients—it’s time for the studio’s annual Summer Workshop.
Join the studio during a couple of days for insights into process, creative methods and client experiences, an exchange that could lead to landing a design role at the studio. Applicants must hold a BFA in Industrial Design, have a good spoken and written English and be entitled to work in Sweden. Last day to apply is October 25. For more details, Download the attached PDF.
