Hexagon is an all-in-one solution to take care of design, sound management, and sustainability.

Hexagon is not only sound absorbent, but it is also environmentally friendly and water resistant as well.

The Swedish design studio ‘Form Us With Love’ got into a partnership with a Wood Wool cement manufacturer Träullit, which is the sole manufacturer of Wood Wool Cement Board in Sweden.

What is ‘Wood Wool’?

Wood Wool, known as Excelsior in North America, is a mixture of wood slivers, water, and cement. It’s mainly used for packaging, cushioning, insulation, and even stuffing big, soft toys.

Wood slivers give the product insulating, heat retaining, and sound-absorbing properties. The cement binds it together and provides strength and fire protection.

Hexagonal tiles can be assembled in different patterns. These tiles not only improve the acoustics of a room, but they can also transform any room into a warm and beautiful space.
