Make an Acoustic Statement Visually With the Tessellate Collection
The five innovative, cutting-edge acoustic products that make up the Tessellate Collection provide superior sound absorption while making a bold visual statement. Recently launched by Kirei, manufacturer of eco-friendly design materials for interiors, and created by industrial designer Michael DiTullo, Tessellate features a level of design flexibility unmatched in the acoustic market.
“We are seeing a trend across multiple industries of geometric forms that visually feel like fractals as they emerge, warp, and transition around corners,” says DiTullo, independent designer and creative director of the Tessellate Collection. “The Tessellate Collection riffs off of this trend with five products that can become the hero of the space or serve as a part of a larger design concept.”
The collection includes the Tessellate Baffle, Tessellate Pendant, Dash Tile, Texture Tile, and Polygon Cloud, all handcrafted in Southern California. The Tessellate Pendant and Tessellate Baffle are created with a patent-pending design technique.
The Tessellate Baffle adds a style and sustainability to any space with high ceilings. The innovative design of its PET triangle-shaped planes diffuse and dampen sound for superior acoustic control. Meant to be a focal point rather than recede into the background, the Tessellate Baffle is no afterthought – it’s a key design element.
The Tessellate Pendant is partner to the Tessellate Baffle. Its cylindrical, vertical form is suspended much like a pendant light and is composed of the same triangular planes. The pendant’s small, vertical footprint makes integrating acoustic solutions into lighting and HVAC systems more simple than may be expected. While intended to diffuse and dampen sound, the Tessellate Pendant is also a way for designers to create visual artistry in large spaces, whether in groups or in a grid of straight lines.
Acoustic wall tile continues to get better and better – both in function and appearance. The Dash Tile features a diagonal design with added surface area, and can be mixed and matched in placement and colors. Make the walls pop or fade into the background, whichever you prefer.
Texture Tile is one of Kirei’s highest acoustic performances ever. Visually, the wall element offers a dense, angled geometry that diffuse excess sound waves. Handcrafted from PET felt panels, designers can choose from over 30 standard colorways to customize projects.
Acoustic design again becomes art with the Polygon Cloud, bringing new dimension to the collection with both convex and concave options. It can be installed individually or in clusters to create dynamic shapes and patterns.
The Tessellate Collection brings together performance and sustainability in an innovative, visually stunning way, transforming recycled PET felt into unique acoustic solutions. Each Tessellate product is handcrafted from Class A Fire Rated 12mm PET felt panels made from 60% post-consumer recycled PET with numerous environmental certifications, including Declare Label (Red List Free), HPD, and Low-VOC.
