Natural Sciences Museum Shop

Friday, August 16th, 2013

We worked with Witty! and Associates to create this unique wall panel design at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. In this small museum shop, our challenge was to reduce the noise level but also to carry forward the theme of the museum.

For this project, Witty! used an image from the Hubble Telescope to use on the panels and on the windows above. We used a silkscreen fabric from Pictura Graphics that was acoustically transparent for the panels, and coordinated the installation to line up with the image on the windows above.

DUMAC Conference Room

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Privacy and a quiet working environment are essential elements of any conference room, making this type of space a perfect candidate for acoustical panels.

Sounds issues, particularly echoing, posed a problem for the DUMAC conference room in Durham, NC. Because the project was to be completed in an occupied office building, we coordinated our project schedule closely with the owner in order to not disrupt the building’s occupants.

We worked with the design team at Witty! and Associates, who provided screen-printed images on acoustically-transparent fabric. We used the material on our acoustical, sound-absorbing panels that we installed throughout the conference room, reception area, and board room. In doing so, we effectively eliminated the environment’s sound issues, while delivering an attractive finished product.

In order to create a sense of place, we used unique photos from Duke’s campus. From gargoyles found on many buildings to a rainbow over Duke Chapel, these acoustical panels help brand DUMAC’s offices with many common sights on campus.

Aldert Root Elementary

Noisy stairwells and hallways can be distracting to those students still in class. Aldert Root Elementary School needed a practical solution to control noise in the stairwells and to bring character to the otherwise drab spaces. For this project, we used acoustically transparent fabric and screen-printing to provide a unique design element for the space on the acoustical wall panels.

Our experience with these specialty fabrics can provide you with an aesthetically pleasing design, while also branding your space. With the Accutrack System®, fabrics can also easily be updated without damaging the panel system.
