Entry DescriptionAcustico Lighting’s debut Musica Collection addresses both form and function with its statement design and noise reducing qualities. The unique open structure is designed to both absorb and diffuse sound whilst adding a bold statement to any space. With a mid-frequency noise absorption rate of up to 30%, these fully tested pendants provide a sense of calm and quiet to our increasingly noisy lives. Creative Director Samantha McKenzie developed the range with an aim to reduce noise-related stress and address end-user wellbeing in a variety of interior settings. Using environmentally responsible material choices and manufacturing methods, our products have been designed to be good for the planet. They are manufactured by local hands in Australia and are available in a fully customizable range of 10 colours and 4 profiles, aptly named Opera, Punk, Jazz and Jazzier. Watch this space for new designs launching in 2019.
Company DescriptionLaunched in September, 2018, this lighting collection achieves visually beautiful and acoustically calm spaces for the office, hospitality, healthcare, education and residential sectors.
Targeting the architectural lighting sector, our 100% Australian-made and owned acoustic lighting collection is at the forefront of human centered-design. The wellbeing of the user has been a key design factor.
At the heart of this collection is the desire to achieve a true triple bottom line - for people, profit and our planet. This will be achieved through using sustainable materials and manufacturing methods to create products that are good for our planet. Additionally, we will donate a proportion of every sale to 3 chosen Australian charities and unashamedly make some profit along the way!
