Five Senses™

Finding the right material and finish for your project usually feels like roaming a unmanned warehouse for off-the-shelf products. We’re putting a stop to that with Five Senses™, our incredibly flexible made-to-order wall panel system. We make it easy to find the right materials, then help you customize and integrate them into your project.

A World of Possibility

Five Senses by CSI Wall Panels is an innovative architectural panel system that combines precision fit wall panels into a flexible, modular designed framing attachment system. Constructed using a variety of substrate materials and an extensive array of architectural finishes, our modular system allows you to work in flexible design and functional combinations of the the lower and upper portion of the wall. While our system can incorporate typical 4’ x 8’ panels, it was designed to offer a more flexible installation of 4’ x 3’ panels for the lower wainscot and 4’ x 5’ panels for the upper wall.

While the system brings one value to the product, the other value is found in the extensive depth and form that each design achieves through the magnificent 3D carvings and endless finishes. Make selections based on your specific decor; wood grain, fantastic stone carved options, contemporary metal finishes or bring new language to your environment by choosing one of our pre-designed themes. Combine leather and fabric for a fantastic retro look, or concrete finishes with old brick application for Loft decor. The opportunities and combinations are endless. Help us satisfy your vision and create your character.

PoshFelt™

Felted features customized to any form, application or style that suits your project. Because we control the manufacture of our PoshFelt™ products, our capabilities are truly limitless, allowing you design and plan freely without concern for implementation. Our plush and premium felt contributes serious elegance and gravity to your space by hushing background noise, creating a calm, contemplative atmosphere.

The Feeling of Felt

When you walk into a room with PoshFelt™, you feel it before you feel it. You are surrounded by quiet comfort and stillness of mind, as it dampens sound and insulates your world, freeing you to focus on the present moment.

This feature-rich, plush and premium material is designed to set you at ease with a premiere tactile experience that reads “absolute luxury” in Braille.

The Plush Hush

PoshFelt’s™ edge comes from its softness. While similar products use synthetic materials that feel hard and hollow, we take the high road by delivering a premiere tactile experience that invites people to interact with the world they move through. Our super-soft felted surface makes an immediate, tangible difference that transforms its environment. It invites curiosity, and begs to be approached, to be marveled at and thought about, to be remembered, and to be felt.

Whether a room has a single feature installment, or wall-to-wall coverage, PoshFelt™ makes a statement across more senses than any other paneling solution. The quieted hush provided by the presence of PoshFelt™ gives a sense of reprieve from a busy day, dulling out the distracting noise of our busy lives.

A Place for People

We live in a world of efficiency and productivity. The structures we move through are made of drywall, fabricated steel and concrete, fitted together to make impressive but often hollow-feeling echo chambers.

We want to bring the human touch back into these settings, to create environments that promote community, comfort, and tranquility without sacrificing in visual aesthetic. PoshFelt™ achieves exactly that, in as many functions, styles and colors as you can imagine.

Intimacy

Have the perfect conversation over a cup of coffee, insulated by the plush luxury of wool felt. Feel as comfortable out at dinner as you would be in your own home.

Aesthetic

Find the perfect look. PoshFelt™ has a dizzying array of applications and colors that can be suited to any environment. See the beauty in the marriage of function and style, with a physically compelling installment.

Calm

Allow yourself to become absorbed in something. Experience a stillness of mind like no other, and let yourself be overtaken by tranquility. Let your thoughts drift in an atmosphere of meditative calm and luxurious comfort.

Comfort

PoshFelt™ is comfort that can be applied anywhere. Our soft and humble materials help to cut through the stress of everyday life in the office, or any place that has people desperate for a break.

Luxury

Communicate importance, gravity, and luxury. PoshFelt™ is the unparalleled choice for a premiere tactile experience. Make a statement with a feeling of elegance that can’t be ignored and won’t be forgotten.

 

Crisp and Clear

PoshFelt’s™ excellent acoustic dampening creates an atmosphere free of wandering white noise and irritating echoes that compete with conversation. When fewer sounds are vying for clarity, it becomes much easier to immerse yourself in a conversation, and avoid distractions. Cutting out auditory interference also reduces stress from the over-stimulation caused by excessive background noise.

This chart demonstrates the NRC values of our acoustic fiber. An NRC value of 0 indicates total sound reflection (extreme echoes), while a value of 1 indicates total sound absorption (no reverberation). In order configure your project for optimal NRC, we invite you to speak with our architects as part of our design + build process.

Why Wool ?

Wool has a strong track record. As in, thousands of years strong. The first instances of wool as a textile date back to 1500 BC, and for great reason: wool is a sustainable source of workable fiber that doesn’t involve harming an animal. Sheep pop in for a haircut once each year and then they’re back at it.

From there, wool is cleaned and refined into a more cooperative product. Refined wool is commonly used in apparel due to its incredible array of natural features, including wrinkle resistance, anti-static, high burning point, insulative properties, shock resistance, water absorption--the list goes on.

Value Engineering

If you’re looking to cover substantial square footage on a budget, we invite you to consider our Soundcore™ panels. Soundcore™ acoustic fiber is a semi-soft mesh made of post-consumer plastics that offers the same acoustic dampening as PoshFelt™ at an incredible value per square foot. Soundcore™ comes in every style, color, and application that PoshFelt™ does, with a function-forward approach over the luxurious touch of PoshFelt™.

Break free from the concrete, doll-up the drywall, and design a place that says “This is who we are, and this is the space we occupy”.

Form and Function

In order for a place to become something more than four walls and a door, it needs something extra. It needs depth, function, and a human touch. Soundcore™ answers that call with a cost-effective way to provide form and function in a beautiful display.

Rescue a room while skipping the surgery. Soundcore™ installs quickly and easily to transform the sensory output of a static environment into something to marvel at.

Education

Everyone knows the familiar crescendo of a room full of students trying to talk over one another. Soundcore™ meets that problem head-on by dampening acoustic reverberation, reducing the need to increasingly raise voices to combat echoes. Our Acoustic Fiber material is also tackable, so every accomplishment and every great idea can be kept in plain sight. A wide array of color choices lets you create vibrant environments in a k-12 setting, and more mature colors and applications at every level of education. The same magic that Soundcore™ brings to the classroom can be applied in the hallways, cafeteria and gymnasium with all the same impressive utility.

Corporate

Soundcore™ encourages conversation and increases auditory comprehension by stifling echoes and quieting the environment. The constant drone of the air conditioner, the traffic outside, the boisterous business next door—all of these contribute to an atmosphere of stressful noise that can keep you feeling on edge. Soundcore’s™ versatility means it can fit in anywhere, and custom designs, printing and application means it can integrate seamlessly into your branding amidst a corporate setting.

Commercial

In a veritable sea of retail space featuring vacuous, unfinished ceilings, Soundcore™ brings conversation back to the table. With our Cumulus ceiling mounted collection, you’re able to hang on to that industrial- chic aesthetic while making your restaurant feel like a restaurant instead of a cafeteria. The safe and clean material allows patrons to enjoy a personal conversation instead of shouting over the clatter of dishes and crosstalk. Soundcore™ can also be customized with printing, so your logo can be proudly displayed anywhere..

Healthcare

In a place where comfort, quiet, and cleanliness are paramount in importance, Soundcore™ hits all the marks. A still and calm environment is crucial to recovering patients, as well as the stress levels of everyone in the building, and this is Soundcore’s™ foremost quality. Beyond that, Soundcore™ is VOC free, non-hygroscopic, fire rated and easy to clean. Whether you’re outfitting a pediatric center or private practice, Soundcore™ is the perfect choice for function and affordability.
