A COMPLIMENT TO
Stockholm, 7 February 2001 - Snowerash is presenting new additions to the original Soundwave Panel at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, 7-10 February 2001. The company will also be introducing new colours and finishes for existing products, including Chip, Globlow and Airbag.
As new information and communication technologies are changing the way we live, Snowcrash has emerged as an intermediary between the virtual and the material. Exploring issues such as flexibility and connectivity, the company's experimental approach has generated a stream of innovative and idiosyncratic designs. Smart, fun and affordable, Snowcrash products are about materializing new ideas while exploring new technologies and materials.
Soundwave is a sculptural wall panel designed as part of Snowcrash interest in creating humane space. As well as looking striking, the organic shapes and different surfaces and materials of each panel have particular acoustic properties and the panels can be combined according to the needs of the locations.
The panels are mounted using self-adhesive Velcro and, unlike more permanent acoustic installations, can easily be moved from one space to another.
The undulating wave form of Swell, the original Soundwave panel, helps reduce sound levels by absorbing the mid/high frequency range. The new panel Scrunch, has a craggy surface reminiscent of a mountainous landscape that also absorbs the mid/high frequency range.
Other new additions are the Swell diffuser panels, made from PET, which enhance acoustic control by diffusing sound, and the bass absorber, also made from polyester fibre, which is designed to compliment all the other Soundwave panels by absorbing low/bass frequency.
Soundwave Swell and Scrunch panels are now available in light grey, dark grey, off white and sand. Soundwave Swell Diffuser is available in white, and Soundwave Bass Absorber is available in light grey.
CHIP, GLOBLOW AND AIRBAG IN NEW COLOURS
A long time Snowcrash favourite, Chip, a modern version of the rocker, now comes in new colours and finishes.
Besides the original silver, Chip is now available in black, lime green, orange and burgundy in a highly reflective lacquer finish.
Globlow 01, the living light that inflates when it is switched on, is now available with an orange rip stop nylon shade.
Airbag, a combined easy chair and mattress, now comes in anthracite as well as the original silver, with straps in silver.
