Slalom Serves Up Quiet Moments With These Playful Sound-Absorbing Products
Back at NeoCon this year with sound-absorbing products that liven up the office proper was acoustic- and partition-systems manufacturer Slalom.
In zippy hues, fun shapes, and intricate patterns, the perforated, fluted, grooved, or printed wall coverings, panels, baffles, and furniture are made in Italy from wool felt or the company’s fully recyclable, super-sustainable PET felt, which is fabricated from 96 percent recycled plastic—with a supply chain rooted in the territory to boot. Not only did Slalom stand out in Chicago but days beforehand it also turned heads at Milan Design Week with Silentscape, an Op Art–influenced multisensory installation.
