During the Dutch Design Week 2018, we would like to present our newest project — sound-absorbing, lightweight and biodegradable material from the hemp husk.
Hemp seed is a valuable food product. In a number of countries it is produced in large volumes. The husks are formed after peeling the whole hemp seeds. This component of hemp is rarely used and in some countries is disposed of like waste.
Hemp husk panels are a natural porous membrane that absobs sound reflections, regulates the humidity and temperature in the interiors, creating a comfortable and healthy space.
We preserve the natural shape of the original natural raw material, creating a unique surface pattern with an unusual visual and tactile effect.
100% biodegradability of panels, but it is sufficiently stable for long-term use inside the interiors.
The composition of the binder provides 100% biodegradability of panels, but it is sufficiently stable for long-term use inside the interiors. Panels are non-flammable and have antifungal properties.
Hemp husk panels will be presented in rhombus shape from Island collection.The Island collection is a rounded geometric figure surrounded by a wall background. The molded shape creates a feeling that the panels grow out of the wall. It creates the effect of interpenetration of architecture and decoration.Also, during the DDW2018 we would like to show some other materials on the basis of a biodegradable binder. For example, acoustic panels made from fir needles and hemp hurds.
