Pierreplume reinvents recycled textiles as acoustic panels

Translating as ‘featherstone,’ this circular material is named for its lightness and organic stone appearance.

Created by designers Premices and co to address the challenges of the circular economy  and using waste as a resource, Pierreplume is an acoustic material made from 70% recycled textiles like polyester, cotton, wool and acrylic, producing lightweight panels with the look of natural stone thanks to the subtle variation in recycled fibres.

A new alternative for the textile recycling industry, the material is produced in Lille and Angers, France, using textiles from industrial production offcuts, work uniforms and discarded clothing and offering new value to otherwise underused materials – in 2023, Europe textile waste reached a staggering 12.6 million tonnes.

Available in several neutral shades and patterns,  Pierreplume panels absorb sound and promote acoustic comfort in open spaces and can be cut and applied wherever sound reduction, texture and circular materiality are desired. When applied to a wall, the material achieves up to a Class D sound absorption, which can be further enhanced with a cavity or double thickness material.

The material is available in 2000 x 1000 x 12mm panels that can be cut into complex shapes and patterns with a digital cutter, suitable for applications such as wall cladding, coverings, baffling, furniture design and use in commercial interiors from offices to hotels.
