Offecct presents the Soundwave Ennis acoustic panel

Published on : Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Offecct-Ennis-WallThrough a unique collaboration between the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Offecct, the historic Ennis block by Frank Lloyd Wright, has been repurposed as a state of the art acoustic panel for present and future interiors. The name Ennis refers to the famous Ennis House in California, created by Frank Lloyd Wright, built in the early 1920´s.

 
Soundwave Ennis – acoustic panel

 
The Ennis block pattern is not only beautiful, its refined geometry also has the potential to absorb sound. In the square concrete blocks that Wright created for his “textile block” houses in California, Offecct has found a system that can be transformed from a construction element to an acoustic panel with extraordinary artistic qualities. By keeping Wright’s design intact but transferring it from concrete, a material that lacks acoustic properties, to felt material made of recyclable moulded polyester, the Ennis block has become a high performing acoustic panel.

 
Ennis enables new generations of architects to continue to build on the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright to create high quality sound environments in past, present and future interiors. The new Ennis acoustic panel is a new member of the Soundwave collection, owned by Offecct since 2002.

 
“The Ennis Block acoustic panel from Offecct captures the drama and the beauty of this timeless work”, says Stuart Graff, CEO, of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

 
Anders Englund, Design Manager at Offecct, says, “The Ennis block pattern is not only beautiful, its refined geometry also has the potential to absorb sound. By keeping Wright’s design intact but transferring it from concrete, a material that lacks acoustic properties, to our felt material, the Ennis block has become a high performing acoustic panel.”
