Flow and Wave win Best of Year Award

December 3, 2018

On Friday, November 20, 2018, Flow and Wave were named an Interior Design Best of Year winner in the Acoustical Applications category. The 13th-annual Best of Year awards (#idbestofyear) was held for the first time at the Jacob Javits Center’s iconic River Pavilion in New York City and hosted by Interior Design Editor-in-Chief Cindy Allen and Publisher Carol Cisco. Project and product winners were announced from an astonishing 2,000 entries and 586 finalists in 133 design categories.

Quieting the chaos, Flow and Wave will make a splash in any space. Wood ripples along the wall in these two powerhouse acoustic systems designed by Bernd Bennhinghoff. The innovative wood facing is Dukta Flexible Wood available in Baltic Birch Plywood in Natural or Finished, the sculptural wood covers an acoustic box to provide a highly-effective acoustic panel system that installs with Z-Clips. The uber-thin 10mm acoustic substrate in deep charcoal evokes shadows and accentuates the depth of the undulating forms. Flow comes in one panel size available in four different profiles that combine in a multitude of patterns; whereas Wave is comprised of standard modular panels in varied sizes that assemble in one standard configuration. Wave provides a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.50 and Flow delivers a 0.75 due to a polyester fleece infill to boost acoustic absorption.
