Freestanding sound-absorbing totem



While designing and drafting case studies of different environments, Caruso came up with sound-absorbing panels that could resolve acoustic problems in an unconventional way.‎
Taking its name from the large monolithic stones which it resembles, Menhir is a practical and clean solution in terms of its form; its adaptability makes it an excellent sound-absorbing element for low frequencies.‎ Perfect for large environments where speech reverberation can cause confusion and chaos, Menhir sound-absorbing totems can relate to their environment, adapting to various requirements.‎ The shorter version also comes with a cover that can serve as a shelf for resting magazines, plants or various types of furniture objects.‎ Think of a coffee shop inside an airport: a confined space inside a very large environment where the lack of partitions makes this space acoustically uncomfortable.‎ In this case, Menhir sound-absorbing totems could be positioned in between the tables to isolate conversations and reduce any background noise, while becoming an integral part of the furniture.‎  Furthermore, since it is not fixed to the ground, Menhir can be moved depending on the acoustic requirements.‎
The Menhir totem is available with sound-absorbing material made from Basotect® melamine resin by Basf® and a visible base made from satin stainless steel or from steel painted aluminium grey, or with an internal base made from painted steel.‎
