2021 MIXOLOGY NORTH FINALIST
The Leaf is a multifunctional, sustainable and acoustic pinboard and a coatstand. The acoustic leaf offers acoustic and visual sheltering, humidity regulation, inspiration and relaxation. In looks and in features it assembles nature, bringing nature into the interior!
Its' acoustic board insulation contains sound absorption class A+, having high sound absorption values on all frequencies: On speech frequencies (500Hz-2000Hz) the absorption value is even 1! Ditto for high frequencies (> 2000Hz). But also on the low, heavy tones (<500Hz), which are generally difficult to damp, it performs acoustically well. Measured according to the standard UNI EN ISO 11654 in the echo chamber of the Technical University of Delft.
Leaf was created according to the circular design principles: aiming to maximize lifetime usage > minimising waste, energy consumption and footprint > assuring material re-use, preserving its original values.
The Leaf is made of felt from 100% recycled textiles, filled with acoustic insulation from old jeans. As we press the fibers to a higher density it results in a very good acoustic board. The long fibers of cotton make the sound waves well absorbed. The acoustic specifications are so good that this insulation is extremely suitable for reducing noise and reverberation.
