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.
