Mycelium Acoustics
Research Project , 2016 – 2017

The purpose of the "Mycelium Acoustics" project is to provide a solution for the noise level issues between the common kitchen and living room areas in one of the clusters in the HSB Living Lab using a 100% compostable, mycelium based bio-composite. To decrease the noise level, the material is applied in different ways: on the walls of the connecting spaces and as a barrier between the two rooms, partially filling the 3.5m × 3.5m opening. These panels are designed not only to fulfill the acoustical requirements but also to provide an aesthetic appearance. To measure the efficiency of the applied panels, a step by step application process is planned to quantify the added acoustical value of each installation phase.
