“We think building materials is one of the most exciting design opportuniites out there right now” – Baux Team
The idea comes from this convinction: “We think that building materials pose one of the best opportunities for design and design thinking (…) we’re here to explore an area where design values hasn’t been present before” – says the founding partners of BAUX.
Their goal was to use materials that would normally be hidden, and rework them as elements that can contribute to the project of space – “Design hasn’t been an important factor [in this industry], but what we’re seeing now is that buyers such as architects or interior designers are actually asking for design values in materials that are normally purely functional,” – BAUX.

The brand’s inaugural product is a type of acoustic panel called wood wool. Made of spruce wood, cement and water, the sound-absorbent material also regulates heat and moisture. The main feature of these panels is that each one can be backed with magnetic pads to attach them to a metal base surface, so they can be rearranged and replaced. Wonderful.
