Featured Project –
Enjoy the Silence
AntiCAD x Takahashilim A+D

Why are our ears shaped the way they are? Because the folds and undulations of our ear help to channel and modulate sound, and thus enhance how we hear and sense the world. Enjoy the Silence explores this intimate link between form and sound. It is a sculptural acoustic installation that melds complex geometry and sound absorbing material to create an unnatural quiet zone within a crowded space.

The acoustic sculpture is generated using mathematical principles underlying natural forms. Like a wavy coral reef, Enjoy the Silence is based on hyperbolic geometry; it grows exponentially outwards, creating excessive folds to increase surface area for sound absorption. An earth-friendly and sustainable acoustic substrate is inserted between colourful fabric—from the Fabrix paneling system—that skins the sculpture. The result is an experimental collaborative art work that marries striking design, acoustic performance, and innovation.

About AntiCAD

AntiCAD is a product design company founded in 2017 and is currently headquartered in Singapore. The name Anti CAD is an antithesis to traditional CAD (Computer Aided Design). Parametric design is a process based on algorithmic thinking that enables the expression of parameters and rules that define the relationship between design intent and response. AntiCAD manufactures products to be used in parametric design, notably Fabrix, a fabric system showcased in the Singaplural exhibition.
