As design evolved from craft we sought inspiration in our national traditional technique of bobbin lace making. Our goal was to revive an old technique and combine it with design and technology.
The past has always been an inspiration for innovation.
As interior designers we focused on improving the ambience of public interiors.
Our aim was to offer the solution for spaces in need of sound dampening (absorption). In addition, we upgraded the sound absorbing function with LED lights, sophisticated materials and shape, resulting in HEXALUM - a modular acoustic light panel.
The hexagon shape enables arrangement of the HEXALUM modules in various compositions applied to a wall or a ceiling.
The essence of the space is enhanced with the lace hidden under the hexagonal pyramid, which reveals itself when the modules open up and create a new shape.
Our prototype, HEXALUM represents the interlacement of the community.
We connected ourselves, the students of the Faculty of Design – the DiSet design group, with the profession represented by our teachers, mentors and our partner company, Simetrija along with a group of Slovenian lace makers from all over the county.
