The sounds around us affect how we think and feel – and are so much more than measurable metrics. Designing sounds is about wholeness and meaning rather than decibels and noise absorption. It's a world where sounds exist for a reason, and where visual design is a natural part of the acoustic environment.
From a design perspective
What role do colour and shape play in the acoustic environment? In an interview, Svensson's Design team talks about their view of the space as a whole, and the work with soundproofing-classified textiles that should both absorb a certain decibel and at the same time fall and feel right.
The science behind a harmonious acoustic environment
Martin Ljungdahl Eriksson's research focuses on using sound as a design element to influence perception and behaviour. In this article, he looks at the impact of the acoustic environment on the individual – and vice versa. It's a balancing act aimed at creating a harmonious acoustic environment.
