die Geduldigen / Sound diffusers (waste paper)

die Geduldigen

Papier ist geduldig. (Paper is tolerating.)
Die Geduldigen – Sound diffusers made of waste paper

Focus in this concept is the longanimity of paper in view of noise in private households and lifestyle. By making or listening to music, home theater systems, talks in relax atmosphere, in coffee bars or offices…
To reform the space sound, paper contributes itself by square based wall units. Surface structure and molding influence the different wavelength of sound. Space resonances and reverberation get restricted. Die Geduldigen are an ecological option instead of rubberfoam cause of the waste paper pulp molding.
