The wood wool from spruce trees that grow in forests of Sweden is bonded with cement in factory to create environmentally friendly tiles with excellent acoustic properties and marvellous natural insulation. Wood wool is often used for packaging, insulation, and even stuffing teddy bears. This material, produced by BAUX, is now used to create the hexagonal, multi-coloured Baux tiles, that is not only eye catching when arranged together as geometric wall murals, but are also sound absorbent. Further, they’re fire and moisture-resistant as well.
BAUX designs, produces and markets functional construction materials that meet the contemporary expectations of architects, engineers and builders without compromising tomorrow’s safety and environmental standards. BAUX TILES was created together with Träullit, a traditional family business, founded in 1946 by Lennart Rääf. The company has since made boards and panels of cement bound wood wool. Wood wool of spruce, a fascinating material, sprung from our nature, joined together with pure cement, provides unique features to any building. Features that provide sound absorbtion, excellent thermal insulation capacity, high thermal storage capacity, proven highly resistant to fire, mold and rot, mechanically strong and good plaster base.
