A labour of love

At the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2020, we first revealed The Book of Acoustics. The (BoA) was something we had as an idea for a long time. A book that provides guidance for architects, interior designers and entrepreneurs on acoustics and functions as a source of knowledge and inspiration regarding noise; an area we thought was relatively unexplored. We thought that knowledge was lacking and we wanted to do something about this.

The book gained a lot of interest and within a couple of days, our first print of this book ran out of stock. Now, finally, we can offer you this book as a hardcopy.

What we did

Through interviews with psychologists, neuroscientists, acousticians, and designers, the book covers everything from the history of acoustics, how sound occurs and is controlled, to how acoustic design can increase creativity, productivity and wellbeing.

We wanted the knowledge that we provided was hands-on and aimed toward interior architecture and architecture. That you’ll learn the fundamentals of sound control and everything you need to know to start feeling more confident working with acoustic treatments in your design projects.


Accessible for everyone

We want knowledge to be accessible to everyone. We hope to spread knowledge about how sound and noise affect our senses, our bodies and ultimately our wellbeing. That is why The Book of Acoustics is still free to read online and downloadable as a PDF.

If you enjoy the book or need a physical copy for your day to day operations as a working professional, the book is now available for purchase!

  • In the future, acoustics will become even more important because people are becoming more and more aware of how it affects wellbeing.

  • Acoustical design is about material quality and material position. Treatment should be selected first for the acoustics, and second for the aesthetics.
