Fresh from the scene of Stockholm Design Week, these colorful hexagonal wall tiles by Form Us With Love strike a brilliant balance between sustainable materials, economy and functionality. The modular tiles are available in a variety of different colors and can be assembled in various patterns to create a gorgeous mural on your wall. The tiles are made from wood fibers mixed with cement and water, and they have sound-absorbing properties that can actually improve the acoustics of a room.

Form Us With Love collaborates with different manufacturing companies to create everyday objects, furniture, and lighting products that challenge conventional design initiatives. For the production of these hexagons, they work with the only manufacturer of wood wool in Sweden – a 20-man traditional family business called Traullit.

The tiles are made from wood slivers which are known primarily as excelsior or wood wool in North America. The material is mainly used for packaging, cushioning, insulation, and even stuffing teddy bears. The process of making wood wool cement is very simple: wood slivers are cut from local tree logs and then get mixed with some water and cement, which acts as a binder and provides strength. The mixture is then put in a mould and left to dry into shape. The result is a material that is environmentally friendly, moisture and sound absorbent, and fire and water resistant.

    Fun and clever company name ‘Form Us With Love’. There aren’t many appealing options for sound-absorbing. Thanks for keeping me informed. workplace furniture santa rosa

    This seems to be a perfect example of form + function. We love these tiles, and can think of quite a few great walls to use them on. Thanks.
