Baux creates plant-based acoustic panels
22 Feb 2019 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
Baux has worked with scientists from the Royal Institute of Technology to create Baux Acoustic Pulp, a plant-derived acoustic solution
Baux, an acoustic products brand based in Sweden, has developed a line of biodegradable acoustic panels, using a plant-based material called Baux Acoustic Pulp.

A paper-like material derived from plants, the pulp was developed in collaboration with scientists from Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology and is the culmination of more than 25 years of research.

Formed of organically modified cellulosic fibres from sustainably harvested Swedish pine and fir trees, the material is created in process similar to that of making paper. Wood is broken down into a liquid cellulose before being dried out. The fibres are then adapted to emulate the natural protective properties of a range of plants including lotus flowers, known for repelling water, and grass roots, fire retardant. A combination of potatoes, plant wax and citrus fruits give the material strength.

The panels themselves were made in partnership with Swedish design studio Form Us With Love, and were debuted at Stockholm Design Week. They are available in three laser-cut patterns and are dyed with non-genetically modified wheat bran, creating a neutral colour palette.
