New Designs at Neocon

Feb 27, 2019

If you’re a designer, then NeoCon is the place to be.
Every June, hundreds of designers rush to Chicago to attend Neocon. This yearly convention serves as the launching pad for people to share their innovative commercial designs that shape our today and build our tomorrow.
At the most recent Neocon, FilzFelt collaborated with different designers to generate new acoustic dampening products. Their ideas were so fresh, they were given an entire showroom to display them.
FilzFelt worked together with Architecture Research Office to design Block, a modular sound dampening panel made from 100% wool. Block is available in a variety of shapes and colors, which allows you to mix and match to form a unique pattern. Block’s easy installation requires minimal effort and time, making it a great option for those who want to install the design themselves.

The second product from their collaboration is Shingle, individual panels that form a shingle design when placed next to each other.

Submaterial and FilzFelt joined forces to generate seven new acoustic wall panel coverings. Each one is made with all-natural materials, like wool and cork, making them environmentally responsible options.

Link is an acoustic dampening room partition designed by Gensler. It adds a fun splash of color to the office, greater privacy, and reduced noise levels.

Lars Beller Fjetland designed the Beller Collection for Spinneyback. Although many acoustic dampening products are made with wool, Fjetland chose a material less commonly used: Cork. His inspiration for using this material arose from traditional shoe sole making techniques.

There are many options you can choose from when searching for a sound dampening product. An easy way to navigate through the selection process is by identifying which design you like best, which one matches your office aesthetic, and how it will fit into the space where you want to install it. Find the best fit for your office and watch as your employees’ efficiency and productivity soar.
