Geometric Acoustic Wall Panels by Arper
View Slideshow

Launched in 2015 by Arper, Parentesit is a collection of modular wall panels, designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, that not only aid in reducing sound, they add a geometric, decorative element to your space. The components come in three graphic shapes, a circle, square, and an oval, which can be customized to now include a speaker or ambient light.

On top of adding a bold visual element to any wall, the panels bring additional function with their latest iteration of light and sound. They’re controlled via a smartphone app that lets you sync music or take calls and adjust the LED light levels to create the perfect ambience.
