Volume and acoustics

This series reinterprets ancient techniques used in fashion design, like smocking and pleating, to gather up volume for acoustic purposes.

True craftsmanship

The traditional craft of hand pleating and lacing, which requires a steady hand and eye for detail, takes more than 2 hours for each BuzziPleat.

Despite its small footprint, the architectural folds maximize surface area, delivering excellent acoustic performance. The folds trap mid and low tones and help keep sound waves from bouncing back and forth on hard surfaces. Combine different suspension heights to prevent sound traveling in large space with high ceilings.
