Metallic shine in wood panels for enhancing acoustics.
At first glance the MULTI-BARRETTE 8106 wire mesh elements are hardly visible, since they are installed behind wooden panels. With proper illumination the wire mesh gives a nice metallic shine to the wooden construction.
Acoustical panels are located behind the wire mesh layers. The round wires transfer a large degree of sound rays into the actual acoustic layer, rather than simply reflecting them back into the room, which significantly enhances the acoustics.
