Bill Amberg Studio creates dramatic installation at 22 Bishopsgate
Sculptural leather panels make a serious first impression at London’s tallest tower.
Acoustic Timber™ is a beautiful, high performance acoustic treatment designed to realistically imitate timber. Lightweight and semirigid, Acoustic Timber is made from 100% polyester fibre—giving you the option of an authentic timber look that achieves a high standard of fire compliance, and helps you meet seismic requirements. To ensure a natural, high-end finish, we have hand-picked a selection of premium woodgrains taken from real timber veneers—digitally printed on to the panel surface with a safe, water-based, UV cured ink. Available in Cube™ Panels and Frontier™ Acoustic Raft styles Beam 100 and Beam 250, Acoustic Timber is suitable for small to large scale wall and ceiling applications.
Autex Acoustics have developed a new process that for the first time, allows textiles made from polyester (fibre form of PET plastic), to be recycled into new products, other than textiles by protecting the structure of the raw material. The new technology is a significant advance on current industry recycling methods which result in a degraded plastic material that has fewer potential applications in new products. Millions of tonnes of common polyester products including almost half the world’s clothing and products such as disposable face masks are dumped in landfills around the world every year.
