Inspired by the intricate beauty of Japanese design, Woven Image’s ION is the latest edition to a series of tactile wall panel that Hotel Designs has got its hands on…
Woven Image continues to innovate with the introduction of ION a beautiful embossed wall panel which is part of the Exquiste Evolution June 2020 product release.
Acoustic panels for the workplace environment, which modern travellers are now demanding in tomorrow’s lifestyle hotel, aren’t normally renowned for their originality, but Woven Image’s version interweave cutting-edge design with sustainability, reinventing interior acoustic panelling for the modern workplace.
Evolving from the well-known hero product EchoPanel, ION is the second design in a growing collection of tactile wall panels designed for commercial interiors which follows on from the recent launch of Zen a vertical, rib-style textured wall panel. An innovation in non-woven wall panelling, Zen & Ion are specially designed to provide floor to ceiling acoustic solutions for commercial office interiors. Inspired by Modern Japonisme, the tactile wall panels reference the clean-lined, minimal, aesthetic long associated with Japan.
ION has a sophisticated textured design evoking an asymmetrical crystalline effect which is inspired by the geometric shapes of origami and folded paper. A theme which encompasses the simplicity of a Japanese design as referenced with Zen’s corrugated design from a Zen garden.
ION is comprised of 100 per cent PET which is 60 per cent recycled with a recycled non-woven backing and a coloured surface Mura (non-woven wallcovering) which is embellished with a compressed face. Dimensions of 2800mm high by 1130mm wide, allows the back of the panel to remain flat for ease of install for floor to ceiling applications. ION has been trimmed with a straight edge on all four sides to allow for an almost seamless finish and pattern match for continuous wall and double-height application. This allows ION to have the ability to be installed top to bottom as well as side by side.
ION is available in seven colourways from a deep onyx hue to mid-tone duck egg blue, peach blush, vineyard green as well as the classic neutrals of pebble, frost and cream.
Performing to commercial Industry standards for interior wall linings, ION achieves excellent environmental credentials, including Global GreenTag (GreenRate Level A), with the use of post-industrial waste streams and low VOC emissions.
