Wall-to-wall installations: Ribsy by FilzFelt

FilzFelt has launched Ribsy, an acoustic tile-based system for wall-to-wall installations.

Designed by New Mexico-based company Submaterial, Ribsy is easy to install, measuring 6” x 24” and available in 49 colors. Just like its name, Ribsy wallcovering has a deep ribbed texture created with thick wool felt strips oriented on edge in alternating heights.

This acoustic tile-based system creates installations with subtle color variation between felt strips to create depth and texture. The 6-inch x 24-inch tiles are available in 49 colors of natural 100 percent wool felt on a cork backing. The tiles provide a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.35.
