Acoustic wall panels FERN
Acoustic wall panels FERN are chosen to the main exhibition of the international 7th Tallinn Applied Art Triennial.
The triennial takes place from 21 April to 23 July 2017 in Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design, topic of the triennial is “Ajavahe. Time Difference”.
The name of the work is FERN, fern has existed on Earth as an aboriginal species for hundreds of millions of years symbolizing resistance and duration in time. Same could be said about the main material used in work — wool. Just 100 years ago, wool was a textile material with a priceless value, which gave our ancestors clothes and was also used to make necessary housekeeping textiles. In the intervening years, wool’s value decreased, but today, as we have once again started to value natural materials and healthy life and work environment, wool, a warm, sound-absorbing, fireproof and biodegradable material that balances air humidity, is making its way back to modern interiors. The circle of time has become full and the valuable material has resisted the test of time.
