”Zero waste through 100% design”

Soundsticks – Offecct (designer: Andrea Ruggiero)

Making a commercial product out of waste material is easier said than done. But after extensive discussions and workshops with designer Andrea Ruggiero, a method and a design were developed that not only ensured a sustainable product, but also a product that could add something new and relevant to the acoustic segment. The Soundsticks sound absorber consists of leftover textile material from the production of upholstered furniture, which is then pressed together into the shape of a tube held together at the ends by caps made from recycled aluminium. These textile 'sticks' are hung from a rail that can be combined in a straight or curved sequence depending on the need and space.
In order to ensure the availability of quality fabric waste for Soundsticks, Offecct works actively with Flokk's other production units on the supply of materials.
