Hive 1 is an acoustic wall system fit for any queen bee (or worker bee, for that matter). A single hexagonal module with a v-groove design rotates six different ways and fits together seamlessly in randomized installations. Choose from over sixty wool felt colors to create a wall of color and pattern that will surely stir up some buzz.

Maintenance Vacuum occasionally to remove general air-borne debris. Should soiling occur, spot clean with mild soap and lukewarm water. Avoid aggressive rubbing as this can continue the felting process and change the surface appearance of the felt. Refer to 100% Wool Design Felt Maintenance + Cleaning for detailed care instructions.

Randomized Patterns The design intent of Hive is to install in randomized installations. Individual tiles may be rotated up to six ways to create a random pattern. For more information, please refer to the Hive 1 Installation Instructions document.
Installation Installs using a heavy-duty construction adhesive and may be trimmed to size with a utility knife.
Variation Wool felt is a natural material and color variation and inclusions of natural fiber on the surface are evidence of the 100% natural origin of the material. Product color is only indicative, as it is not possible to assure consistency of color in a natural product due to the natural color of raw wool and absorption of dyes. Color matching cannot be guaranteed on shipments and variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
