Ceiling-hung Abso Cushions

Minimum size / Maximum performance

A cushion, the OED informs us, is a ‘bag of cloth stuffed with a mass of soft material, used as a comfortable support for sitting or leaning on, or to serve a decorative purpose.’
Abso Cushions correspond perfectly to this definition – composed only of sound absorbing foam inside a fabric cover made of Aeria stretched over a simple metal hoop, they are now 95 mm thick to ensure maximum acoustic efficiency.

Their shapes and sizes – be they round, oval, square or rectangular with rounded corners – have been specifically designed for use in harmonious combination, making it possible to ‘pick and mix’ a variety of cushions for use within large volumes.
