BAUX creates 100% bio-based acoustic panel

November 2019
The 100% bio-based BAUX Acoustic Pulp panel is the first in the world to combine the performance properties of sound absorption, safety and durability with sustainability and modern aesthetics. Harmless for us, harmless for the environment. It’s nothing short of an acoustical revolution
Over the past century, fossil-based materials have become the norm and standard for acoustical products in the interior design and building industries. It’s time for a new kind of material. One that breaks the mould and pushes us beyond what the world believes is possible for sustainability in acoustical products.
BAUX Acoustic Pulp is made out of sustainably harvested Swedish fir and pine trees. Recycled water. Non-GMO wheat bran. Potato starch. Plant-derived wax. Citrus fruit peels. Zero chemicals.
Adding paint would have compromised the vision of creating a 100% bio-based product. Instead, with BAUX Acoustic Pulp, colour is achieved using different percentages of wheat bran—0, 5 and 30%. Together with the three origami patterns, there are nine colour-pattern combinations and endless possibilities for mixing, matching and harmonizing with different space designs. The final effect is an organic expression of character and colour, without any chemicals at all.
