In Japan, the ginkgo tree is venerated. Several ginkgo trees survived the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945 and are still alive today. For this reason, the trees are considered a “bearer of hope” and a symbol of resilience and peace on the island nation. That is why the distinctive fan-shaped ginkgo leaf is a popular motif in Japanese art.

Ginkgo is an attractive sound-absorbing solution that combines Japanese tradition with a contemporary European perspective. Ginkgo inspires you to dream of nature and brings the most amazing landscapes from all over the world into your indoor environment. Ginkgo can be a cloudy sky in winter or a forest ablaze with colour during the autumn. Merely by changing the colours, this simple shape can morph into millions of different inspirational landscapes. Sound-absorbing acoustic panels in hot-pressed, 100% polyester, form felt in four colours. Ginkgo is mounted on the wall. Surface can be laminated in other colours.
