Grain and Reeds are nature-inspired and available in more than 90 colors.

Grain and Reeds are two nature-inspired wool felt acoustic products that are available in more than 90 colors. Germany-based designer Bernd Benninghoff was inspired by the foliage of the Canary Islands, which informed the fluid, organic designs of both motifs. The V grooves in both manipulate light and shadow, creating an effect of subtle movement. Grain celebrates the variegated details seen in leaves and bark, while Reeds mimics the swaying of sturdy grasses.
