BAUX's campus collection provides acoustic solutions for lecture halls

According to a Swedish study, around 42% of university students have a hard time hearing their professors or peers in a lecture hall. Sound pollution, bad acoustics, and incorrectly designed spaces all contribute to the problem, that can have serious effects on student performance and grades. No wonder, therefore, that for their fall campaign, acoustic tile company BAUX decided to focus on campus life. Their panels can be the primary cladding materials of spaces under construction, but they also provide a quick fix for already existing spaces.
The Campus collection builds on the usual BAUX panels in shapes and colours, composed into a layout inspired by auditoriums, lecture halls, and hallways. While definitely targeted at a younger audience, the hues and patterns are not vivid or loud; those belong rather to hostel corridors. The campus collection instead intends to provide a professional and inspirational backdrop to learning, besides its main function of improving the acoustics of the space.
The eco-friendly, recyclable BAUX acoustic wood wool was applied by Swedish architects Codesign for the interior of Grillska Gymnasiet in Stockholm, illustrating very well how the material works in a school environment. The heat-retaining, moisture resistant, sound absorbing tiles can be applied in multiple environments from classrooms through changing-rooms to communal spaces like the canteen, giving the institution a coherent, fresh, and contemporary vibe.
