DotBox is a multifunctional, modular and flexible storage system able to configure workspaces, made of sheet steel laser-cut, fully recyclable. It can also be customized with pillows and panels in different shapes, colors and fabrics, including fireproof and sound absorbing. It allows to efficiently organize the space with a unique personality.





A skillfully planned acoustics.

Mascagni, manufacturing office furniture since 1930 and also working in the field of home and contract now for many years, has addressed the unavoidable issue of acoustic comfort thoroughly and in a structured manner, like a path that has developed consistently, by tackling the acoustic problem through customizable solutions of interior design, which have no competitors on the market.

The unique features of the products supplied by the Bologna-based company come from the adopted approach and find their roots in the company’s experience and know-how made of testing, synergies with suppliers who work in different industries and technologies never used before in furniture design.
The product presented at the last edition of Workplace 3.0 in Milan perfectly explain how Mascagni creates its products with love and care for the tiniest detail.

TréS is the new versatile, comfortable interior decoration range of modular soundproofing panels, easily and quickly rearranged.
The vertical wired metal partitions of TrèS spine, with their overlapping modules, divide space creatively and efficiently, without preventing communication from going on with its flows, through different levels and plain modules, made up of cabinets, metal, melamine or upholstered panels, and special tops. The last evolution is TrèS Screen: the panels structure are enriched through panels or courtesy, to create a personal space reconfigurable with extraordinary acoustic performance.

By partnering with 3F Filippi, a leader in lighting located near Bologna, was born Lux Sound, the sound-absorbing panel which turns on a feature essential for a comfortable all-round, light.
TréS Sound Sky System is like the beefed-up version of the Sound panel. Using modular and changeable articulated joints, the triangular ribs of the sound absorbing panels, in wood, melamine or textile, come to life and mould the space into peaceful areas that can be turned into extensive workplaces.

ALLinONE Slim is the range of partition walls that hides the secret of its polymorphism and adaptability inside its extruded aluminium sections. The construction can accommodate the panels of single, double or solid glass with an inner steel frame, regardless.
ALLinWOOD is an exploration that brings the natural products, again, in the insulating dividing partitions, a solid wood profile which welcomes in its quarries either single, double glazing or full façade.

Snowsound Fiber: the future of acoustic design (Caimi Brevetti, hall 22, stand B29/C20).

After more than three years of research, Caimi Brevetti – a company with a 68-year heritage in experimenting with and processing products and materials – has developed and is now launching Snowsound Fiber. The new technology will be launched at Salone del Mobile (hall 16 stand E31) and Workplace 3.0 (hall 22, stand B29/C20) among many other new products designed by very important designers.

This product is the result of research and acoustic design that Caimi Brevetti pursued since 2011, targeted in particular at public venues and the workplace, where the greatest reverberation-related issues have always been found.
Caimi Brevetti’s Snowsound® Technology is a game-changer in acoustic design correction. It is a flexible solution for correcting both new-buildings and existing environments, simply and rapidly.
Caimi Brevetti’s research is today at a step change with Snowsound Fiber: a range of sound-absorbing acoustic fabrics with measurable results combined with tactile and visual qualities.

Each material has its own specific texture that conveys different perceptions. The acoustic performance depends not just on the qualities of each material but on how it is laid (its position in space, distance from the walls, etc.) based on specific calculation systems that Caimi Brevetti has developed.
Unlike normal sound absorbing panels, these acoustic fabrics represent custom design solutions.


All Snowsound Fiber acoustic fabrics are made out of 100% polyester, using inherently flame-retardant, 100% recyclable fibers. The fabric may be washed and ironed without losing its fire retardant and acoustic properties.
Snowsound-Fiber products won Greenguard-Gold certification, validating their low emissions specifications and their contribution to environmental quality. Greenguard standards are amongst the strictest standards in the world. Earning this certificate helps to acquire credits within the framework of the Indoor Environmental Quality section in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) buildings assessment system.

Design as you never heard it: Caimi #21Triennale.

The amazing exhibition of XXI Triennale named “Design as you never heard it” and curated by Aldo Colonnetti and Franco Origoni, poetically talks about Snowsound, the multi-awarded technology by Caimi Brevetti.

Sound and listening quality is the theme of this synaesthetic exhibition staged in a charming location – Cavallerizze of Science and Technologies Museum in Milan- that combines technological research and craft tradition, two keywords of “Design after Design”, two symbols of the Italian manufacturing tradition.

The technical features of Caimi’s innovative sound absorbing technology of Snowsound and Snowsound Fiber are emphasized in a tunnel, where you can feel its performances, its formal aspects in the products carried out by some of the major designers and the poetic aspects obtained through the work of the haute couture fashion designer Moreno Ferrari.
Actual  “self-supporting” architectures you can put on, and most sound-absorbing.

Franco Caimi explains: The theme proposed by XXI Triennale -Design after Design- was rendered by the great industrial designers by matching state- of- the- art, sound-absorbing and sustainable materials to improve our wellbeing, yet based on the craft tradition. That’s what Caimi means by “21st century Design”.

Wooden and melamine sound proofing panels.

TrèSSpine Screen and Sound versions- is a new, versatile furnishing system by Mascagni. Its modular panels, in steel, melamine and wood, are specifically designed to ensure rapid reconfiguration and  its sound absorbing panels, in laminate, wood and fabric, contain the most advances technologies to ensure the best in acoustic comfort and finishings.

TrèS is the system created by Mascagni and Ergon Design that combines accessorized modular panels and transparent or sound-insulating screens of different heights and widths, with optional integrated cabling.

TrèS System includes TrèSound, a sound absorption innovative panel (in wood or high pressure laminate) based upon the principle of the Helmholtz multiple resonator, in combination with the acoustic absorption achieved by means of porous materials, since the panels contain polyester fibers. The product was developed closely with a team of companies, starting from aesthetic demands and production requirements linked to its manufacture and then perfecting the dimensions of the external layer of the panels to improve their acoustic absorption. For this reason they decided that the holes in the panels were to be of a specific size and specific distribution, and specified the density of the internal fibrous material, to obtain the best possible acoustic performance for a free-standing panel which was tested in the reverberation chamber with excellent results.



2015: the International Year of Light.

Euroluce 2015 falls on UNESCO Year of light, what are the aspects you’d like to see emerge from this initiative? Will Euroluce be able to tackle the most heated issues? That’s what we talk about with Stefano Bordone, president of Assoluce, who is very conscious of the perceptive and emotional aspects of light. “Not accidentally, in Italian  ‘to come to light’ is synonymous with to be born” he points out.

With this iniziative, UNESCO mainly wants to lay emphasis  on the theme of Energy saving, which is absolutely important, yet not the only significant factor.
Last century Light has marked mankind with innovations in all kinds of fields: from the theory of relativity to the application of laser beams in the medical field, from LED tv to Internet.
In Western countries a cultural evolution is in progress, that concerns both energy consumption and the important role played by light for a quality environment.

Obviously trade meets these requirements.  However, what is important is a conscious user. For instance, they tend to perceive LED lighting as a problem-solving solution,  there is scanty information on the fact that  not all LEDs are the same.
The perception theme is basic, because light has a strong emotional charge and, besides environmental quality, it affects people’s state of mind and mood,  as many scientific researches have confirmed.
Paradoxically there is a growing awareness of wellbeing, the best psychophysical condition that helps productivity, too, yet lighting designers are seldom involved in the design of a work environment.
Developers and designers should be awakened to this theme, for the figure of the lighting designer is basic and must be integrated into the general project. The lighting designer can render light “beautiful”, by rendering light he conveys an attitude.
Can Euroluce 2015 pass on this message?
It can prove that ornamental light isn’t just maquillage.
In the field of hi-tech lighting, a phenomenon is emerging, which proves that companies can innovate, and it’s the combination of more functions in a lighting fitting: sound absorbing devices or music spreading appliances, for instance.
That’s a clear example that we need a balance between “where” the world going is going and what companies are doing.


High and sound absorbing at the “window”.

“Which “natural lamp” do we know other than a window? A lamp that is also a crossroads between our indoor space and the rest of the world. Screens, panels, and draperies have contributed – over the centuries and across civilizations – to control its use” quite so the designer Mario Bellini explains the concept of Night and Day, designed for Artemide.

Night and Day is a wall appliance made up of an aluminium lighting body and a textile curtain with excellent optical and sound-absorbing properties. The optical engine accommodates next-generation LEDs and the light beam is controlled by an injection-moulded lens, which produces a wall- washer effect outlining the textile surface.  The curtain is unfolded and rolled up by means of an engine enclosed in two separate elements with well-known geometric forms (circle and triangle) of high aesthetic impact.
The lamp body is white, in contrast with the black controlled-glare optical blades that play a dual function: outline the profile of the curtain and reduce side glaring. At night, it gradually turns on to the extent that it fully substitutes day light, while ensuring privacy.
“The material used for the luminous curtain shows very interesting acoustic features, perfectly enhanced by its particular operational procedures. – explains Ing. Umberto Nicolao, Sound Engineering Consulting Services– The luminous curtain can be installed at some distance from a glass panel or a wall, while at the same time offering excellent sound absorbing features. More specifically, the frequencies that are the most important for understanding language and, particularly, consonant articulation fall within a range of 1,000 to 4,000 Hz. In relation to this, as much as 40% of the sound waves entering the curtain are absorbed by it, while preventing any enhancement of sound reverberation in space.
Its large size and its flexible installation requirements, no longer limited to an installation on glass, improve the efficacy of the product, while significantly increasing the acoustic performances of any space where the luminous curtain is installed.”




Sound absorbing islands with a couture touch.

Islands, design by Francesco Bettoni for Citterio, is a modular sound-absorbing screen system that defines with elegance the privacy spaces, microenvironments in shared areas for operational work, meeting, reception.

The typical pattern with vertical lines allows to identify areas with high versatility in the use and configuration. Moreover, its structure ensures proper acoustics and provides an adequate privacy level.


Sound absorbing and attractive design.

Estel’s olistic approach to workplace aims at creation of quite, respectful and intense spaces; acoustics and lighting, a comfortable armchair or a hanging sound absorbing panel can form a part of the same family launched at Orgatec: Kite.

Kite resolves acoustic problems in the environment with a formal solution using a pleasing and flexible design. This suspension system for sound absorption panels, which premiered at Orgatec, reveals high acoustic performances that Estel has joined with technical lighting functions, for what already seems to be a new classic for workplace environments.
Kite panels, consisting of a support frame in aluminium and a core of perforated mineral fibre, thanks to a particular morphology and suspension, have become an effective sound trap with high sound-absorption ability and flexible aesthetic impact. They range from a version on wall, hanging from ceiling and as a backrest for seatings. In addition, the possibility of inserting a LED bar will transform hanging Kite into a lighting element, increasing its functionality and areas of use.
It is available in the sound absorption version in three sizes: 120×120 cm, 100×100 cm and 80×80 cm, while the Naked version has only the frame with the lamp. It can be used in different contexts from open office space to meeting rooms, to public areas and contract. Acoustic tests performed in the laboratory on the Kite hanging lamp, according to the EN ISO 354 standard, show that the absorption performance is at its highest level between 250 and 2000 Hz, the typical frequency range of human speech.

In the photos: to improve the impact of acoustic environments, Estel presents a vast and flexible range of solutions dedicated to collectivity spaces: sound-absorbing panels Kite can be used in wall version, hanging from ceiling or as a sitting backrest.
