The brand recently announced a brand-new acoustic wall panel range – Muse – for superior acoustic performance within commercial interiors.

Micheal Young, with his passion for pioneering technology, has earned the reputation of being one of Asia’s most exciting industrial designers. He creates objects that explore the technological ingenuity of the continent, and the designer has collaborated with Woven Image on a new range of acoustic wall panels titled Muse.
With unusual patterns, contrasting colour prints as well as subtle tone-on-tone colours and Pearlescent ink, Muse makes for a fitting choice of product to achieve seamlessly finished floor-to-ceiling applications.
The collection is available in a range of three designs – Muse Fluid, Muse Cloudy and Muse Mineral. Muse Fluid is reminiscent of the movements of the ocean and is available in five colourways – Ice, Ivory, Goldeneye, Lavender and Emerald. Muse Cloudy, on the other hand, is themed around a series of varying dots that converge to produce a cloud-like effect and contains three options. Lastly, Muse Mineral can be specified in two different versions – Calcite and Steel.
Young believes that his studio has been able to lend a very particular sensibility to the product. According to the designers, “I believe that the collection is genuinely cutting edge.” He explains. ‘It seems to me that an industrial design office is going to take a different approach to create a pattern than an artist or even a graphic designer. We created the aesthetic for Muse using a software program called Grasshopper. By setting up an animated algorithm, we generated a changing two-dimensional pattern and freed the animation at a particular point to build the final image. In other words, we are not creating conceptual decoration but technical decoration. The finished results look wonderfully mathematical.”
Within commercial interior environments, the wall panels work to reduce reverberated noise and improve the acoustic quality of the space. The product has also been awarded a Global Green Tag certification for its eco-conscious construction.
Young’s collaboration with Woven Image is a mark of how far the brand has come when it comes to creating a design that transforms the indoor experience.
