FilzFelt: Arc is Sure to Make Some Waves

Introducing Arc by Bernd Benninghoff

Arc features curves born out of nature but with its feet firmly planted in modern technology. This acoustic panel system by German designer Bernd Benninghoff ripples across the wall with subtle waves of soft wool felt mounted to a thin but mighty acoustic substrate. One standard panel size (with a half size thrown in) comes in five designs to allow endless pattern options.


About the Designer

A FilzFelt collaborator again and again, Bernd Benninghoff works as a furniture designer and interior architect based in Mainz, Germany. For Bernd, objects and spatial context are interrelated. It is important for him to use authentic materials and appropriate manufacturing processes—in search of meaningful design solutions and room experiences with an independent character. We love Bernd for his efficient use of materials and his thoughtful approach to technology that creates complex designs that look seemingly simple.


“I am always interested in structures with depth and three-dimensionality that can be experienced both visually and physically. The surface of Arc plays with light and shadow and comes alive with the movement and change of light.” – Bernd Benninghoff, designer of Arc
