A quest for a better sound experience, where a good start is to improve quality of sound by controlling echo.
And, to minimize the noise in your space. Be it in your home, office or a public place.
Where-ever your space, seek to better enjoy and make use of your environment.
Statistics on crowdfunding Duplo bricks
This is the statistics on the crowdfunding campaign of Duplo bricks, which was held for 6 weeks and ended 4th March 2018.
The collection of bricks does continue, until all parts are gathered, in order to complete the acoustic echo-cancelling panel. This aim of this page is to keep you updated on this project! 🙂
In interior spaces, there exists 2 techniques of acoustical dampening for the effective control of echo. Or more specifically, the reverberation time – the long fade of an echo.
We have the traditional technique, of materials that by their mass – thickness – absorb the energy of soundwaves.
Then we have diffusors. A whole different technique, where uneven surfaces scatter (split up) soundwaves. Which, from this surface are then reflected as many, many, smaller waves – with many, many, different paths.
Energy conservation – Low hanging fruit
We as human beings do things out of old behavior – habits – sometimes without reflecting over the logic of our behavior. I will present situations around energy saving behavior, which I have philosophized a lot about.
Are you familiar with the term “Low hanging fruit”? It means things that are easily reached, things that are available at closest reach.
I believe habits are formed because of the road of least resistance. In certain ways, things are simply easier. Therefore, there is a resistance to change a habit, a behavior.
And, if to change, there must be an certain experience of pain.
In Finnish media, a while ago.
Not important who Navalniy is, what network he has or not. For the record, I do not value all he says; he goes a bit too far in his ideology.
Important is how he is treated by Putin and his klan of officials.
Not in particular that they do not use his name, only referrals pointing to him.
Particularly important is the energy they spend. The time, the (tax payers’) money, to keep him from being an electorate.
Tiira – Vallila Interior
My first textile project using a Vallila Interior product came by chance.
I was new in a local business group of a global network, and in our local group we had arranged a lottery between our guests. From my side the prize was a noise-dampening acoustic wall element, with the textile being the free choice of the receiver.
The receiver chose the textile theme called ‘Tiira’. The name of the black-stripe-headed seagull, in Finnish.
