The Acoustic Panels are an exploration of how sound interacts with the built environment and physical materials.  Focused on the theme of wellness, the acoustic panels will reflect, absorb, and diffuse sound waves in order to modify and craft a more pleasant visual-aural experience of a constructed space.  Originally designed as CNC milled prototypes, the work seen here is in each groups’ idealized form. Some are in airports and hospitals, others in gallery spaces, and some as interactive experiences.
