Parentesit Acoustic Panel

Lievore, Altherr, Molina, 2015


Parentesit is an acoustic wall panel that reduces extraneous background noise and creates a space for concentration. The bold, graphic forms are available in three shapes -- a circle, a square, or an oval –– that speak to diverse environments and can be further customized with the addition of a speaker or ambient light. Each panel is offered fully upholstered or in a lacquered metal finish, in white or black. These geometric forms can stand alone or be paired together in matching or contrasting upholstery. The simple shapes of Parentesit complements Arper’s clean, minimalist language to create a visual element that is as functional as it is modern. Parentesit is ideal for corporate, contract, hospitality, and residential settings.
