New design added in Soundwave acoustic collection
Through an exclusive collaboration between the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation (US) and Offecct (SE), the historic Ennis textile block is now repurposed in the state of the art acoustic panel, Soundwave® Ennis.
“Offecct is a company with a strong interest in architectural history. We have always been great admirers of Frank Lloyd Wright™ and looked at his impressive body of work for inspiration. This new collaboration and the product that is the outcome of it marks a highlight in the evolution of the company. To add an historical and world famous design to our Soundwave® acoustic collection, is a conscious choice. Offecct has always been, and will always be, committed to develop and produce original and sustainable design”, says Kurt Tingdal, CEO of Offecct.
Frank Lloyd Wright™ – Bio
As an architect, Frank Lloyd Wright™ (1867–1959) always sought to embrace technology to improve the spaces where our lives play out. His innovative approach and open mindedness is evident in projects from the Larkin Building in Buffalo (1904), where he opened up the confined office environment to natural light. To the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum (1959) where a wall of art created a continuous experience for the visitor to enjoy.
Frank Lloyd Wright™ (1867-1959) was an American architect widely recognised for creating the country’s first domestic architectural style: the Prairie Style. Wright believed we all have the right to live a life surrounded by beauty regardless of economic or social status and in his work he pioneered the open floor plan, championed new building techniques and cultivated a tradition for the use of natural and local materials. Wright considered a building’s interior as important as its exterior, designing everything from furniture to graphics. Landmark buildings like Falling Water (1935) and the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, inaugurated just before Wright’s death in 1959, have become sites of pilgrimage for generations of architects and Wright’s groundbreaking achievements in his pursuit of an organic architecture continue to exercise an influence even today. Frank Lloyd Wright™ is widely recognised as one of the greatest architects of all times.
2017 is the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wrigt´s birth. Read more about Frank Lloyd Wright and his work at Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
