International design studio Form Us With Love has created a series of modular wall tiles made from a sustainable material known as wood wool. Designed for Baux (a contemporary building material firm), the modular panels were made in collaboration with Traullit, the sole, family-run manufacturer of the environmentally friendly material, which is also known as excelsior.
Made from wood fibers bound together with cement and water, wood wool is often used for packaging, insulation, and even stuffing teddy bears. The innovative designers at Form Us With Love have used this seemingly mundane material to create the hexagonal, multi-colored Baux tiles, that not only look fantastic when arranged together as geometric wall murals, but are also sound-absorbent. Even better: They’re fire- and moisture-resistant as well.
