Unusual Woolen Ball on Display at the Culture House

Textile designer Bryndís Bolladóttir is currently exhibiting her latest project, kúlan (“the ball”) at the Culture House shop and café. The ball is made of Icelandic felted wool and takes on different functions, such as a hanger, toy, tablemat, decoration, stool and sound absorber.

“Diffusers are used to remove acoustic problems in rooms such as coloration and echoes and to make the frequency response of a room better,” explains engineer-producer Páll S. Gudmundsson at Stúdíó Sýrland in a brochure about kúlan.

“Absorbers are also used in conjunction with diffusers to minimize acoustical problems within the room such as standing waves, slap-back echoes and isolation. Kúlan is a combination of both an absorber and a diffuser and can help fix acoustical problems in rooms such as standing waves, slap-back echoes and coloration,” he states.

The exhibition runs through mid-August 2010. Visit the Culture House’s website for further details and click here to learn more about Bolladóttir’s creations.
