Concept

Soundwave® Wicker, the prized and celebrated architects Gert Wingårdh and Erik Wikerstål have given the acoustic panel its perfect expression. With its woven surface, Wicker gives an industrial product with supreme acoustic qualities a touch of traditional crafts.

The origin of Wicker is a material with an expression and a set of characteristics which seems to be exact opposite of those of an acoustic panel: concrete. As architects of the ongoing renovation of Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, Gert Wingårdh and Erik Wikerstål not only have the responsibility to make sure that the prestigious 19th century building gets a climate that the art treasures will feel comfortable in, they also had to design an extension with a less prominent but very important function – the cargo hold through which the masterpieces for the exhibitions are taken in to the museum.
