Spotlight on Dunes: Meet Snowsound’s 2021 Best of NeoCon Winner

The Best of NeoCon competition recognizes new products exhibited at The MART in 52 categories. While many brands enter, only a select group take home the coveted award. This year Snowsound Dunes, a wall-panel system designed by Felicia Arvid, won the prestigious Silver Award as well as the Innovation Award in the Best of NeoCon Acoustic Solutions category.

Dunes is at home in a range of commercial settings including workplace, hospitality, education and multifamily amenity spaces. Earlier this year Dunes was also honored with an ADEX (Award for Design Excellence) Platinum Award 2021.

The Best of NeoCon judges appreciated the seductive aesthetics of Dunes. The three-dimensional tapestry blends poetry and function with the unsurpassed acoustic performance Snowsound is known for.

Designer Felicia Arvid's custom hourglass shape forms a seamless, three-dimensional wall with gracefully wandering lines. The subtly undulating form vividly evokes the sensuous and feminine movement of sand dunes, which also inspire the name. The textural quality of the material suggests the millions of grains of sand that comprise a dune.

In terms of performance, the Best of NeoCon judges noted that Dunes is a wall-applied acoustic solution consisting of two layers of Snowsound's Fiber Boucle textile. One layer serves as a flat base backing and the other as a three-dimensional sound-absorbing pocket created with repeating pleats held by steel clips. The product’s superior acoustic performance comes from the topographies between the backing fabric and the air pockets in the hollow reliefs of the upper layer of Snowsound Fiber.

Dunes is available in Snowsound Fiber 8 Boucle. It is easy to clean and sanitize, 100% recyclable and Greenguard Gold certified. Dunes provides Class A sound absorption (ISO 354), Class A fire and smoke safety (UL 723/ASTM E84) and meets CDC guidelines.

During NeoCon, attendees were able to connect with Dunes at Snowsound’s new permanent showroom at The Mart. Snowsound was also on display in a variety of other ways throughout The Mart.

If you have an upcoming project, the experts at Snowsound can calculate how reverberant a room or space is and the optimum number of Snowsound Technology Panels, Snowsound Fiber Products or Snowsound Fiber Acoustic Textiles are needed for optimal acoustical comfort.
