träullit hexagon

the träullit hexagon is a new wall covering material, designed by form us with love (previously mentioned here and here). it is made from woodwool cement board, and has many interesting properties:

“We were looking into manufacturers of woodwool cement board in order to install it in our new studio, It’s an interesting material; simple, good looking and environmental friendy. Besides, we needed to stop the echoing.” The process of making wood wool cement is quite simple: wood slivers is cut from logs, then mixed with water and cement and put in a mould to dry into shape. The result is a material that is environmentally friendly, water resistant, moisture and sound absorbent.

i like the tessellating properties of hexagons, and i like the choice of colours for this wall colouring. very nice!
