ARO Grid 5

ARO Grid 5 features dramatic, swooping panels that mimic the soft, undulating quality of fabric canopies. One standard module size keeps it simple but allows for sculptural patterning that installs in a snap. Panels are lightweight and pair the softness of drapery with powerful acoustic performance.
