With its new series of PET felt acoustic tiles, Focal Point gives specifiers the building blocks to conceive ceilings that enhance the architecture of interior spaces, as well as occupants’ comfort. Ori’s acoustic performance, with a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 1.1 on average, makes it a product to control high noise levels and reverberations in a variety of interior environments.
Inspired by the ancient art of origami, Ori offers 10 design variations inspired by the great outdoors. Simple Slope 1 and 2, Dynamic Slope 1 and 2, Valley 1 and 2, Plateau 1 and 2, and Peak offer an array of shapes that can be combined to create soft undulations and sharp ridges, reminiscent of gentle rolling hills or steep rocky crests. Plain, a flush tile, is field-cuttable to facilitate the integration of downlights, sprinklers, sensors and other ceiling elements.
When it comes to lighting integration, the possibilities are endless. Because of the standard 2- by 2-foot format of Ori, designed for 9/16- and 15/16-inch grids, architectural troffers are natural companions. However, interesting patterns can be created with linear recessed or suspended luminaires, and pairings with pendants or cylinders have also been explored by the design team and yielded exciting results.
Ori can be combined with the existing Nivo Acoustic tile and architectural troffer; it is offered in the same palette of 31 PET felt colors used across Focal Point’s portfolio of acoustic solutions.
Concurrent with the release of this new product family, Focal Point also published a 48-page design guide: “Designing with integrated lighting & acoustic solutions”. The piece provides step-by-step guidance in designing a space with acoustic solutions and luminaires; information on each product in the Focal Point line; options to optimize the acoustics of an interior environment while meeting budget, aesthetic and lighting requirements; and several case studies. Focal Point also offers the support of its team of experts for lighting and acoustic calculations.
