Fascinating textured surfaces

POLARMOSS will be debuting “Polarmoss LAB” at NeoCon–a laboratory where customers can view the many various possibilities of the company’s moss and customised projects. www.polarmoss.fi

Augmented reality

Configura will have display InstantAR, an augmented reality (AR) CET Designer Extension created by Praxik, which allows CET Designer users to “project” their designs in a client’s space using a phone or tablet.

Blooming acoustic panels by Moreno Ferrari

SNOWSOUND will be launching a new Snowsound-Fiber Product, “Si Sboccia” which means “to bloom” in Italian. It’s hand-made from patented sound absorbing Snowsound-Fiber textiles in velvet. Designed by Moreno Ferrari, one of Italy’s most distinguished fashion designers, it offers a tactile perception very different than any typical acoustic panel in the industry. The various layers of the sound absorbing fabric folds offers a medium to trap the sound waves and mitigate echo in many different types of spaces. www.snowsoundusa.com
