MINNEAPOLIS, MN (PRWEB) January 20, 2012
Studio 3 Designs envisioned a new interior space for Eola Eyes in Orlando, Fla., which features a stunning sinuous acoustic ceiling composed of custom WHISPERWAVE Ribbon Baffles from pinta acoustic, inc.
Eola Eyes moved to a new location in a postmodern 1960s building that was gutted and renovated by Studio 3 Designs. “By starting from scratch, we were able to create a new simple and clean aesthetic for Eola Eyes. The space features many hard surfaces, including wood floors, brick and glass walls and large windows,” says Nathan Vanags, design assistant, Studio 3 Designs of Orlando.
“We were near the end of the design project and realized that without an acoustical treatment the space would have noise problems,” says Vanags. “We considered a metal grid ceiling with acoustical backer, but the budget didn’t allow for that. We looked for options on the Internet and came across pinta acoustic’s WHISPERWAVE Baffles.”
One hundred thirty-four s-shape WHISPERWAVE Ribbon Baffles were installed throughout a 2,000-square feet (185.80 square meters) space that includes Eola Eyes’ waiting and reception, pre-exam and retail areas.
pinta acoustic developed an s-curve baffle, in a custom size and shape, for the project based on reflected-ceiling plans from Studio 3 Designs. Baffles were custom-painted light blue and tightly suspended perpendicularly to open web steel joists below a foil-faced ceiling insulation blanket, painted midnight blue.
“The ceiling in the new space is eye-catching -- it is dynamic and really makes the space,” says Vanags. “The WHISPERWAVE Baffles turned out beautifully. They are also functional and help control the acoustics.
“The baffles were a great fit for this application,” says Vanags. “The ceilings were not superhigh -- about 9.5 feet. We would have lost height if the product extended down too far.”
WHISPERWAVE Baffles are manufactured from lightweight, Class 1 fire-rated, natural white or light grey willtec® foam and offered for a variety of designs. Standard HPC-coated options include black, white, light blue, almond, ivory, light and medium grey colors. Panel sizes can be any dimension up to 48 inches by 96 inches (1219 x 2438 mm), and typical thicknesses range between 2 to 3 inches (51 to 76 mm). Custom shapes, colors and sizes are available.
