A formfeld wall panel combines design with acoustic function. Each piece becomes a true original through its algorithmically calculated, machine-milled surface structure. Similar to an abstract painting, it can easily be mounted on any available wall space. Its non-directional, organic pattern allows for installation on narrow and long sides. In addition to the four standard formats, custom formats can be produced upon request.
Characteristic of the golden-brown heartwood of the German oak that we use are the large pores and clearly visible medullary rays. The wood for a Formfeld wall panel comes from a single tree, resulting in a homogeneous color image. However, not all areas of the trunk are suitable, so we carefully select a high proportion of lamellae with standing annual rings by hand to obtain a calm grain pattern. Fine branches, convolutions, and inclusions are essential and distinctive authenticity features of the material. The wood surface is polished by hand in several steps and finished with a small amount of solvent-based wax oil. This protects the wood and preserves its color, similar to raw sawn timber. Over time, it will darken slightly.
The unique surface relief of the panel serves a dual purpose, not only providing a visually interesting design feature, but also enhancing the acoustic quality of any space. Its ability to diffuse sound evenly throughout a room helps to create a more pleasant listening experience, while reducing unwanted flutter echoes that can occur between parallel walls.
In addition to its scattering effect, the panel can be further customized to include perforations or micro-perforations that possess sound-absorbing properties. In particular, a perforated panel is an effective absorber in the lower frequency range of human speech (between 250 Hz and 500 Hz), with an Alpha-value of around 0.6, meaning that it can absorb up to 60% of incident sound energy in that range. The micro-perforated variant can absorb up to 90% in this frequency range, making it an excellent choice for spaces where speech intelligibility is important. (For more detailed measurement values, please refer to the technical data sheet.)
Typically, production of the wall panels takes between six and nine weeks. For micro-perforated variants, an additional two weeks may be needed to ensure the highest quality results.
We value your satisfaction, and therefore shipping arrangements will be made in consultation with you. To ensure a safe delivery, we use only reliable and insured freight carriers.
Please note that, while we strive to provide the fastest turnaround times possible, we prioritize quality and craftsmanship above all else. This commitment to excellence means that each panel is carefully crafted with attention to detail and the utmost care, resulting in a superior product that is both aesthetically pleasing and functionally effective.
