Hive 2 is the bee’s knees with its randomized patterning. Inspired by honeycombs and the cells that make up their structure, this acoustic wall system is composed of a single hexagonal tile that rotates and repeats seamlessly to create an overall pattern greater than its parts. Together, these graphic tiles deliver some serious sound-absorbing oomph while providing playful patterning.
Custom 2-Color or more per wall is available and must be quoted
Durability Contract or residential
Lead Time Made to order and certain lead times will apply
Installation Each order includes one standard tile that may be rotated up to six ways to create a random pattern. Install using a heavy-duty construction adhesive and may be trimmed to size with a utility knife. For wall-to-wall installations, add 15% overage. Refer to Hive 1 Installation Instructions for complete guidance.
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 tiles and expect color variation beyond the normal commercial range.
