Abso acoustic objects

The Abso range consists of five families of acoustic objects: Cushions, Pads, Totems, Cubes and Cones. Each of them provides a guarantee of highly effective sound absorption in view of the simplicity of the product. They are light and easy to set up, can be mobile or fixed and can be used in all types of spaces with zero or practically no installation work. Their covers, made of our run-resistant Aeria fabric, make them robust and attractive.

Abso Cushions are available in round, square and rectangular shapes that can be combined to very pleasing effect in empty spaces and below ceilings.

Their rounded contours create an impression of softness in space.

Abso Cushions are made of sound-absorbing foam and an Aeria fabric cover stretched over a metal hoop. Their 95-mm thickness makes them very effective.

Round Abso Cushions suspended from the ceiling in a renovation project that combines legacy features with contemporary ones.

Used in numbers, Abso acoustic Cushions play a role in organising this volume, giving it a sequential feel.

Abso Ceiling Pads are specially designed for standard dropped ceilings with “T” runners. They are clipped into the grid to create quiet areas below them, for example above workstations.

They are an addition to a traditional modular ceiling and with their flat or bevelled shape can be combined to create interest in a space

Abso Totems are embellishing and very sound-absorbent. They also contribute to organising space by signposting quiet areas.

Abso Totems are super-light, require no installation and can very easily be moved.

When suspended, their vertical shape punctuates space.

Abso Cubes are much lighter than they appear and are easily installed in space.

Their pure shape can be used to devise free combinations that are highly sound-absorbent.

They can be suspended, either by one corner or horizontally.

In large volumes and when there is no wall area available, Abso Cubes suspended from the ceiling are a good solution.

Abso Cones are a fun way to add structure to spaces, either with a precise layout or grouped in bouquets. They add interest to volumes and suit all types of ceilings.

Suspended on a single vertical cable, they are a valuable complement in situations where reverberation is sometimes tricky to reduce.

Composition and installation

Abso cushions are made of sound-absorbent foam and a metal hoop.

The metal hoop lends rigidity to the shape and provides a support over which the Aeria cover is stretched.

Covers are put on by hand so that the seams are perfectly positioned.

Various ingenious fixing systems are available depending on how the shapes are to be installed: here a Cube is suspended horizontally.
