New: Architonic RSS Newsfeeds

Posted by Walter Phillips on 22.08.2013 - Tagged as: ,


It’s sometimes a bit difficult to get an overview of the latest manufacturers, products, editorial articles and projects in Architonic’s database, given its vast amount of content. That’s why we’re now offering Architonic updates via RSS newsfeeds.


Regardless of how you read and manage your feeds – be it online in a browser or via an app, like Flipboard or Pulse, on your mobile device – we always keep you up to date. Now it’s easy to follow in real time which interesting new products have appeared on the market, what the latest trends are in architecture and design, and which new projects are being shown on Architonic.


To allow you to tailor content to your own particular interests, we’ve divided the Architonic Newsfeeds into three areas: the latest products from our manufacturers, the most recent articles from News & Trends, and the latest architectural projects on Architonic.

Wosk Theater, Museum of Tolerance, wall panels designed by Kathryn Walter, Felt Studio

Wosk Theater, Museum of Tolerance, wall panels designed by Kathryn Walter, Felt Studio

The Canadian designer Kathryn Walter created these wall coverings made of felt strips for the Wosk Theater inside the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, which was designed by Yazdani Studio in 2007. Layers of felt in different thicknesses and varying shades of gray are applied on the round walls in order to improve the room’s acoustics. A delicate solution unlike the oftentimes rather dry appearance of standardised acoustic panels.



What the designers say:

Working with designers from the Yazdani Studio, Kathryn Walter adapted her Striation series wall panels to these rounded walls. Site measurements were taken prior to production. Then typical panels were fabricated, and site-specific panels were made to fit around features such as projection windows, lighting units and the screen, integrating these structural elements into the continuous treatment.

Felt is a material which is experiencing a renaissance. Not just in fashion but nowadays also in product design and architecture, more and more creative spirits are exploiting the potential of this material. In the area of tension between archaic material and norm product, between handicrafts and industrial production, its textile character requires very special handling. Architonic presents an up-to-date and comprehensive review.
