Impact Acoustic wins iF Design Award 2024


Lucerne/Hanover – Impact Acoustic has been honored with the international iF Design Award 2024 for its Archisonic Cotton acoustic material. According to the jury, it is the first and only fully circular acoustic material ever produced. It can absorb 60 percent of the sound.

Impact Acoustic receives the prestigious iF Design Award 2024 for its sound-absorbing cotton tiles called Archisonic Cotton. The international prize, which has been awarded annually by iF International Forum Design GmbH since 1954, is presented in various categories for outstanding design achievements. This year, the iF Design Award Night will take place on April 29 at the Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin.

Archisonic Cotton is made from cotton cellulose, a by-product of the cotton industry that would otherwise be disposed of. The material has the ability to absorb up to 60 percent of sound. According to the jury’s statement, it is the first and only fully circular acoustic material ever produced. It is completely reusable. At the end of its life cycle, 100 percent of the sound absorber can be returned to the production process.

Impact Acoustic was founded with the aim of breaking down the barriers to transparency and sustainability in the world of architectural design by bridging the gap between design, functionality and the circular economy. “This launch proves that you don’t have to sacrifice one of them to satisfy the others.”

In a press release, Sven Erni, founder and CEO of Impact Acoustic, describes this award “as proof of the tireless commitment of our entire international team to constantly push the boundaries of innovation in sustainable design”. ce/mm
