The Acoustical Iris
Acoustical rises are produced in different sizes and grouped in patterns hanging along the staircases
Sound Reflection Analysis
By analyzing the path and the density of reverberation in the staircase, we choose the gaps between stairs to add 'barriers'.
When people walk by the stair, senses will be activated by the distance between people and irises, opening and closing.
The first prototype we made
Learning from the iris mechanism, we produce this design for the staircase. When senses are activated, irises will open and expose the acoustic material inside.
