sound panels

I was trying to find some cool architectural project from some Scandinavian country to show everyone, but instead I came across this. It's called Soundwave Skyline from OFFECCT. I find it interesting because we have these old acoustical panels in our house called Tectum. The panels we have, while they might not be the most attractive thing, do a fantastic job of dampening the sound. When we put down the new hardwood floors there was some concern that the house would be pretty echoy. However, most everyone that's been over to the house has commented on how quiet the place is. Still, it's nice to know that there are other options out there.

I actually like the look of the Tectum. I think the texture is interesting (and functional!).

Are they water proof/resistant? I sprayed the outside overhangs down with the hose.

Tectum's now available in a variety of fabric coverings -- just as effective. You can find lots of options on their website at
