Michael Young and Woven Image create an acoustic Muse
Woven Image is delighted to collaborate with world renowned industrial designer Michael Young on a new range of acoustic wall panels. Notable for their extraordinary patterns that feature contrasting colour prints as well as subtle tone-on-tone colours and pearlescent ink, the Muse range is perfect for seamless floor-to-ceiling applications in commercial interiors.
The collection comes in three designs: Muse Fluid evokes the movement of the ocean and is available is five colourways (Ice, Ivory, Goldeneye, Lavender and Emerald); Muse Cloudy is based around a series of varying dots that converge to produce a ‘cloud-like’ effect and contains three options (Sandstone, Starlight and Foam); finally the cross-hatch style design Muse Mineral can be specified in two different versions (Calcite and Steel).
The panels, which are 1180mm x 2800mm high untrimmed, are manufactured from PET, 68 per cent of which has been recycled. They aim to reduce reverberated noise in commercial spaces – achieving a Noise Reduction Coefficient rating of 0.30 (no air gap) and up to 0.75 (with 50mm air gap).
According to Young, his studio brought a very particular sensibility to the product. “I believe these designs are genuinely cutting edge,” he explains. “It seems to me that an industrial design office is going to take a different approach to creating a pattern than an artist or even a graphic designer. We created the aesthetic for Muse Fluid, Cloudy and Mineral By setting up an animated algorithm we generated a changing two-dimensional pattern and freed the animation at a particular point to build the final image. In other words, we are not creating conceptual decoration but technical decoration. The finished results look wonderfully mathematical.”
