Swedish design studio Form Us With Love together with entrepreneurs Johan Ronnestam and Fredrik Franzon have launched a new building-materials brand named BAUX and a first new product, ‘Baux Träullit’ sound and heat insulation, during the 2014 Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.
“We founded BAUX on the belief that building materials should be surprisingly functional and remarkably beautiful.” says BAUX. “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.”
Available in six geometric shapes and several different colours, Baux Träullit acoustic panels were created together with Träullit, a traditional family business located in Österbymo, Sweden founded in 1946. The company makes 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.”
