Subtly rotating lines evoke rain showers and provide visibility in ARO Array 4. ARO Array hanging panels add texture, color, and modulated visibility to any space. ARO Array offers standard static and transforming patterns that can be used individually or in series. The panels define space, control light and view, and provide varied degrees of privacy. The ARO Collection is an Interior Design HiP Performance Wonder award winner.

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.
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 between individual panels and expect color variation beyond the normal commercial range. In addition, variations in temperature and humidity can expand or contract the fibers affecting the size and shape of the felt. Please note that the material dimensions may change up to ±5% due to climate variation.
