CHICAGO –LOFTwall, a leading designer and manufacturer of moveable, freestanding divider screen products for the contract and residential markets, is set to reveal BLOX, a new architecturally designed space utilization and sound management solution at NeoCon 2016. Held June 13-15 in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, NeoCon is North America’s largest exposition and conference for the interior design profession. LOFTwall will exhibit in space 7-6046.
“While open plan interiors are great for space utilization and collaboration, noise and sounds in these environments can become an unwelcome distraction that impacts creativity and productivity,” said Steve Kinder, founder of LOFTwall. “We designed BLOX to be an inspiring and stylish premium acoustically rated product that stands out from the typical drab and bulky range of acoustical panel products available in the market today.”
The BLOX system manages sound control in a new way. Instead of being permanently affixed to existing walls or ceilings, BLOX is modular, and can be placed anywhere in an interior environment and moved around as needed. BLOX is offered in twelve tackable fabrics, ranging from elegant neutrals to bold brights, that are made with a premium wool felt finish. These soft, textured textiles absorb VOC pollutants. Made from 75 percent recycled content, the matte anodized frame is easy to set up and reconfigure. Both the frame and panels can be recycled.
LOFTwall is also previewing a conceptual product, FLOX which is a modular, flexible acoustical partition that combines the unique design attributes of BLOX and LOFTwall’s popular FLEX product. Designed to absorb a wide range of noise typical in the open office environment, FLOX features multiple panel heights to create a unified design for collaborative spaces or desking configurations. Panels connect with a linking aluminum profile, and support is provided by a steel base plate. Multiple sections can link together to create any desired length or shape without the use of a tool. FLOX’s panel surface is 100 percent wool felt finish with a poly-fiber interior for sound absorption.
