PLECTERE introduces texture to for example, office spaces and muffles noise to allow for better focus and concentration as well as a pleasant spatial experience.
It is sound absorbent, improves the acoustic properties of a room, and introduces privacy and tactility to an office or specific space. The Product is flexible so easy to fit and adapt to any space and is rather like piece of well-designed furniture.
Normally acoustic improving materials are massive and not transparent at all. The use of this braided felt give you the best of both; the objects have excellent acoustic performances as well as translucency.

PLECTERE: @Vanderlande state-of-the-art new headquarters
Ahrend showroom St. Oedenrode
Studio Petra Vonk was asked by Studio Aandacht to help with the restyling of the showroom of Ahrend at their headquarters in Sint Oedenrode. Ahrend is an office furniture manufacturer, one of the oldest in the Netherlands. Fokkema & Partners architect Ruud Hoppenbrouwers created a large open space during the renovation. The Showroom is totally surrounded by floor to ceiling glass windows so there is lots of light entering. The space also needed some acoustic improvements. By placing sliding panels with braided felt in front of the windows we could temper the sunlight and improve the acoustics at the same time. The office furniture showroom, usually quite clean and rudimental as offices can be, also gain some extra tactility by using felt als material. Concept and realization; Studio Aandacht / Tatjana Quax, Ben Lambers Window panels; Petra Vonk.
Taking inspiration from the world of art in muted weathered colours and multi-layered patterns, the Desso&Ex collection is about connecting people, areas and different interior design elements. It reflects the shared values between Desso and Odette Ex at Ex Interiors and their passion for creativity and high quality design.

In addition to straight surfaces such as curtains, room dividers and partition walls, PLECTERE can also be used to create more sculptural forms. Because the final mesh still behaves as a kind of cloth let it form. In fact the suspension of the fabric itself actually determines its vertical form. All kinds of bends, garlands and corners can be formed within the cloth depending on what the space wants.
The state-of-the-art new headquarters of Vanderlande industries in Veghel has been offered a gift.
PLECTERE acoustic and textural improving room dividers now also bring privacy to this huge space.
To improve the tactile quality in the hallway, we installed huge PLECTERE tube objects.
Even more easy to place and replace in the office are the frames.
PLECTERE introduces texture to office spaces and muffles noise to allow for better focus and concentration as well as a pleasant spatial experience. The acoustic properties of plain felt are already quite good, but because of the 3D structure of PLECTERE sound waves are mitigated even better within an even smaller surface area.
It is sound absorbent, improves the acoustic properties of a room, and introduces privacy and tactility to an office or specific space. The Product is flexible so easy to fit and adapt to any space and is rather like piece of well-designed furniture. Over time, the way a space is organised can be changed depending on the owner’s wishes, and these pieces can be moved and evolve along with space.
After the renovation of a former church into a doctor’s office on the Wittekade in Amsterdam, it became apparent that the acoustics were truly something to be desired. Patients often had difficulty even understanding the doctor. Due to the use of hard materials like concrete flooring and smoothly plastered walls, this problem is very common. Petra Vonk was approached to solve this issue without violating the clean, modern interior’s appearance. Through the application of tactile materials with good acoustic properties, Vonk was able to create a beautiful solution to what had been an unmanageable problem. The acoustics were optimized by applying 2 wall hangings in every consult room, resulting in clear audibility and beautiful works of art on the wall. The hollow sounding corridors leading to the consult rooms asked for wall dressings to better the acoustics to a more pleasant level.
