Sustainable sound absorbing panels
Indigo is an acoustic room structure, that maps Taiwan's cultural treasures. The design is a homage to cultural heritage that has become apparent in everyday objects. Typical local patterns, traditions and customs are translated into sound-absorbing panels made of 100 percent organic banana and mulberry fibers. The indigo plant gives the panels their blue color. Bamboo forms the simple framing that turns the structure into a featherweight.
