A smart material with one mission: The transformation of a patented felt texture into a three-dimensional designed acoustic element. By using “the coat“ inside of generous interior areas as a modular, architectural element, it creates a new spacial experience with great acoustic characteristics and a unique atmosphere. The invention of this acoustic element is developed by a stable fabric structure of the company M&K, which is transformed into a polygonal, three-dimensional, clear form shaped by mitred creases. Thanks to an integrated magnet system it can easily be mounted on an entire area.
Additionally, a soft graded colour palette, shaped by a certain gradient design intensifies the effect inside of the architectural context.
