As suggested by its name, the new Biophilia collection of acoustic solutions from Kirei takes design cues from the natural world to bring a healthy dose of the outdoors inside.
With creative input from industrial designer Michael DiTullo, the six designs within the Biophillia collection range from stunning botanicals to landscape-inspired motifs and introduce both a subtle elegance and superior acoustic properties.
The hyper-realistic patterns in the Biophilia collection include: Succulent Wall, a kaleidoscopic arrangement of the water-retaining plant; Tea Leaf, which layers oversized and semi-transparent leaves in a random pattern; the vintage-feel Cut Stems that combines various plant stalks in a rhythmic manner (in colour or black and white); the subtly spiralling Tree Rings; Clear Water, which mimics the look of a sun dappled lake; and Sandstorm, a highly defined interpretation of a wind-rippled desert landscape (in colour or black and white).
Custom-printed on panels that are made from 60 per cent post-consumer recycled PET (which diverts hundreds of plastic water bottles per panel from ending up in landfills).
The panels can be installed on walls and ceilings as well as on wall systems and office furniture systems.
The Biophilia collection is made using Kirei Ink, which is water-soluble and contains less than .03 per cent of volatile organic compounds and that is free from heavy metals — and contain up to 50 per cent monomers and oligomers naturally derived from plants and biomass.
