Perhaps not so surprisingly we have found that our acoustic clouds tend to provoke a ‘Marmite’ kind of response from potential customers. Many approach us because they simply love and specifically want clouds, whereas others like the notion of natural materials, but are not keen on the idea of adorning their rooms with clouds.

For these customers we offer the option of alternative, more conventional, shapes such as rectangles, circles and ellipses.

The ellipse is an interesting shape for a number of reasons, not only is it simply very pleasing to the human eye, but its acoustically reflective properties are well documented and have given rise to such architectural revelations as whisper galleries/chambers.

The ellipse is made using the exact same recipe as the clouds and therefore boasts the same Class A performance as our flagship product.

Ellipses are supplied complete with all fixings and are designed to be hung at 250mm from the ceiling. Taking the depth of the ellipse into account and the fixings, it will lower the height of your ceiling by approx. 440mm.
All wool components are treated against moth with a chemical called Eulan SPA (approved under the Oekotex 100 certification of textiles). Our suppliers assure us that this process protects the wool for the lifetime of the fibres.
