Ayrsonics, a North American custom acoustics manufacturer has recently announced the launch of a moss wall decor firm Quiet Earth Moss (QEM). Working directly with architects and designers to design, engineer, manufacture and deliver custom installations, QEM provides natural, preserved moss walls as panels, mosaics, frames, 3D designs, planters and more.
“As workers return to the office, Architects and Interior Designers turn to office design solutions inspired by Nature, using natural materials, green walls, and plants to increase human connectivity with the natural world,” said Dean McIntyre, CEO of Quiet Earth Moss. “Creating a naturally healthy environment, offices can provide a stronger sense of security and peace of mind.”
Redesigning the Modern Workspace
Offering over five types of moss with endless color options, QEM products are made with 100 percent natural moss and preserved with eco-friendly natural oils and dyes. A QEM preserved moss wall also utilizes Ezoboard, a leading acoustic backing material. The product can even be customized to create unique vertical installations or be used to upgrade a typical suspended ceiling.
By incorporating more biophilic elements into the workplace, QEM cites building owners and business leaders can help ease stress, blood pressure levels and heart rates, while also increasing productivity, creativity and heightened states of wellbeing. These principles have also been shown to improve worker concentration, engagement, and cognitive ability.
By rethinking workspace design in the context of biophilia, QEM says, there is an opportunity to improve employee productivity, creativity and emotional wellbeing, simultaneously fighting the health issues and absenteeism that has plagued workplaces for years as a result of job-related stress.
Building Back Stronger
QEM works directly with architects and designers to design, engineer, manufacture and deliver custom installations, and with five fabrication centers across Canada and the U.S., QEM also uniquely able to reduce lead time and avoid supply chain issues that are plaguing the industry.
“We are the only acoustic manufacturing company with a manufacturing facility and 5 fabrication and distribution locations in North America,” said Doug Barlett, CEO of Ayrsonics Group of Companies. “This gives us that competitive edge to maintain our reputation for being truly environmentally sustainable, providing extremely quick delivery times supported by an in-house design engineering team to reflect what designers conceptualize.”
