Kora acoustic screens

Kora acoustic screens

In shared spaces, Kora acoustic screens can be used to organise what is visible and what is not, and to control the acoustics around people so as to improve their individual comfort.
As well as reducing reverberation, Kora screens with their 5-mm-thick MDF cores also effectively dampen sound transmission.
Their simple shape and robustness, the wide range of feet available and the 30 colours in the Aeria palette give designers a multitude of combinations to play with.

Composition and installation

As well as reducing reverberation, Kora screens with their 5-mm-thick MDF cores also effectively dampen sound transmission.

Pine timber from the nearby Landes Forest is a local renewable resource used to make feet for the screens. It is protected against soiling to enhance its durability.

Kora screens with bases made of local pine can be provided with optional casters for even more flexible use in spaces.

Acoustic screens with metal feet are available in brushed stainless steel and powder coated black, grey or white finishes.
