Audio Diffusers, art of acoustic panels
To incorporate contemporary wooden art, with its gorgeous imperfections of knots and grains, is the easiest way to bring nature into any space of your life. Wood has an ability to transform your mind and soul, to make you emotionally charged, excited, calmed or soothed.
According to Dennis Foley, an acoustic engineer with over 30 years’ experience (Acoustic Fields), wood is a perfect choice for diffusers. Why? You look at all the major studios if you look at all the rooms in the world that have a history of good recordings for voice and instruments, they have lots of wood. Why? Because the natural materials on this planet produce the best sound. All the materials that the Earth produces or that we produce from the Earth really makes the best sound, compare to synthetics like plastics and fiberglass. Soft woods are the best sound diffuser material option, with its beautiful grains and knots which could be easily stained and sealed, it’s an excellent medium. It’s strong, light and flexible. I can shape it, carve it, colour it. Design of each art piece is blending form and aesthetic. Form is most important, and wood species and richness of grain patterns are chosen to enhance it. Softer woods are good selections for diffusion because sound takes on the characteristics of the surface that it strikes. So if it strikes soft wood, you get a nice, smooth, warm, balanced tonal sound back into the room.
And I’m completely agreed with Foley’s statement, that wood sound diffuser is a musical instrument if properly placed and designed within a room and it’s almost like a speaker because it has a sound quality of its own. It has a frequency response of its own, it has a place in the room it needs to be. Your acoustic life will be changed forever and you will never go back to using just absorption, maybe for the low frequency cause that’s the only way we can do it but for middles and highs? Diffusion is just an incredibly powerful tool and unfortunately poor diffusion is one of the four major acoustical distortions we all have in our rooms. Until you hear what it does and what it adds to the presentation, you’re really missing something. Once you experience it, you will never go without it!
“The wooden block panels are an elegant combination of art and acoustic treatments for studios and home theatres. According to Signals, they are truly amazing as they don’t look like the usual audio diffusers used in recording studios and performance halls…” (Audio Video magazine South Africa)
Whether you are looking for something exceptional to make a truly original artistic statement in your home or you are looking for that wow factor for any urban space—I am delighted to create something very unique and outstanding just for you.
All wood for my works were already used before. I hope this is my small contribution to green building. Rather than cutting down trees to get the needed material, reusing wood is just as good if not better.
Imagine your interior environment enhanced with the power and beauty of nature inspired art. Unique wood wall sculpture will set a ton, create an atmosphere, reflect a business aspiration and create a sense of corporate identity in the workplace.
“One of the most striking qualities of contemporary art is its ability to shock, outrage, and provoke its audience.”
Try to use this calculator to find first reflection places in your room where panels were located and it works very well, thank you Ukrainians.
I know, that making an original art order online is a bit of leap of faith, it’s a confidence and a trust put in me, which I take very seriously. Most of my work is done by custom commissions and thanks to the power of the internet it’s sold and shipped all over the world. So I would be happy to create the right art for your space!
