At this week’s Stockholm Furniture Fair, Swedish company Blå Stationent will unveil Ginkgo, an artful sound-absorbing system comprised of distinctively shaped individual panels made from hot-pressed 100% polyester felt.

The Ginkgo panels, so named for their likeness to Japanese gingko leaves, and available in a range of nature-inspired colors, can be repeated across a wall in a variety of scalloped, graphically arresting arrangements that manage to transcend their function and morph into something closer to art. Now, that’s what we call a sound design solution.
