Latest Design & Innovation Trends - Acoustics

Acoustical walls and ceilings play a crucial role within a commercial space. Aside from the seemingly limitless design options that can help transform the aesthetic and overall feel of any interior space, proper acoustics are an important solution to minimize noise and enhance speech intelligibility. This helps create a comfortable and functional environment for employees, customers, and clients. NGi specializes in ACT with one of the best acoustical design and installation teams in the industry. Below are a few examples of the latest design and innovation trends in acoustical walls and ceilings for commercial applications.


Acoustical walls and ceilings come in a wide range of designs and styles that can complement the interior of any space. From sleek and minimalist to bold and vibrant, there is a design choice and texture for every preference. Although nevell group offers a wide variety of acoustical solutions, some of the more popular designs include:

1. Custom Linear Baffles - These panels come in various shapes and textures, providing a unique and visually appealing look while also minimizing noise. These you might see in a shopping mall, hotel lobby or an airport.

2. Perforated Acoustical Panels – Also known as a PAP system, these can be one of the more economical application choices that you would typically see in a school classroom, hospital, or courthouse. These panels have small holes that help absorb sound waves, reducing noise levels and providing a clean aesthetic.

3. Fabric-Wrapped Panels - These panels are wrapped in high-quality fabric, providing an elegant and sophisticated look while also enhancing the acoustics of the space. You can find fabric-wrapped acoustic panels in auditoriums, office buildings, and college lecture halls.


Innovation in commercial acoustical walls and ceilings has led to the development of new materials and technologies that offer improved acoustic performance and aesthetics. Let's discuss some of the latest innovations.

1. 3D Printed Acoustical Panels - 3D printing technology has enabled the creation of unique and intricate designs that can absorb sound waves effectively. These panels can be customized to fit the specific needs of the commercial space.

2. Custom Micro-Perforated Metal Acoustical Panels - These panels have even smaller perforations than the traditional perforated panels, making them virtually invisible from a distance. They come in a variety of different finishes including an assortment of wood veneers and laminates - all offering excellent sound absorption that are ideal for spaces that require a discreet acoustic solution.

3. Light-Reflective Acoustical Panels - These panels are designed to absorb sound waves while also reflecting light, making them ideal for spaces that require both acoustic and lighting solutions.


Wall and ceiling acoustics have come a long way from the traditional plain and uninspiring designs. With the latest design and innovation trends, these applications can now provide both aesthetic and acoustic solutions for any commercial space. Whether you prefer a minimalist or bold design, or you require a discrete acoustic solution, there is something out there for everyone – and if there isn’t, just print your own.
