the ‘gingko acoustic panel’ by stone designs is a repeatable element that is evocative of a natural landscape. the form is based on the traditional japanese gingko tree, which are considered to be a bearer of hope and represent a symbol of resilience and peace. the distinctive fan-shaped leaf is a popular motif in local art and and is used as a logo throughout the city of tokyo and as an image for the railway company toei. the pieces offer multiple combinations, as the panels are constructed into a round, modular shape that slopes downwards. this not only helps to improve their acoustic properties, but also gives a sense of movement to the wall with shadows accentuating their organic image.

 

the product is produced by blå station and is presented at the stockholm furniture fair, 2014.
