Felt Ceiling System - Hunter Douglas Architectural - Facility Management Product Release
HeartFelt modular felt ceiling system is designed to deliver a distinctive appearance and very effective acoustics. Installations can achieve an NRC of .50 to .70.
Patented HeartFelt linear panels, created from felted, thermoformed polyester, can accommodate the design of any interior space. The unique texture and soft appearance that have long made felt an intriguing material for furniture, clothing, fashion accessories and interior finishes can also translate directly to the ceiling plane.
HeartFelt linear ceilings bring the organic appearance of felt to the ceiling plane, adding warmth to the visual and acoustical experiences of a space. The panels are available in five shades of grey, ranging from off-white to anthracite, offering opportunities to create visual gradients and rhythms in the ceiling plane.
The dense, soft structure contributes to sound control to facilitate clear communication. Hunter Douglas designed the patented carrier system to support varying panel spacing, which allows designers to fine-tune acoustics, helping create pleasant and productive work and learning spaces.
The lightweight HeartFelt panels easily clip onto the carriers and can be installed as a ceiling cloud or as a full ceiling by splicing individual pieces to create continuous lengths.
The product won a Best of the Best award in the category of Product Design from the Red Dot Institute, earning the designation out of more than 5,500 entries from 54 countries in 2017.
