Visual appeal: Topo tiles from Kirei

These tiles are available in 20 colors in two elevated styles: Pixel and Barcode.

Introducing Topo tiles, a series of modular acoustic tiles designed by Kirei and made from EchoPanels.

Topo tiles add 3-D visual appeal, texture and sound absorption to any flat wall or ceiling. These tiles are available in 20 colors in two elevated styles: Pixel and Barcode. The Pixel design, measuring 10 inches long by 10 inches wide offers 36 percent layer coverage per tile and can be staggered or rotated to create a random pattern.

Meanwhile, Barcode tiles, measuring 15.5 inches long by 7.75 inches wide, can be rotated, staggered or aligned regularly to create different patterns and the 45 percent layered coverage adds more sound absorption and diffusion. Topo tiles are ideal for after-the-fact sound control or integrated acoustic design. They use both soft surfaces and different thicknesses within a single tile to address sound control issues.
