6 Earth Inspired Printed Acoustic Panels to Create a Holistic Space


Bring the outdoors inside. Refresh your client’s space with new life using printed acoustic panels from our Biophilia collection. From florals to leaf repeats to sandscapes, this isn’t your grandma’s wall covering. Using our Biophilia Collection, you’ll easily provide a holistic design to any space to heal harsh echoes and monotonous views.

Printed on low-VOC recycled PET panels, clients can breathe a little deeper while enjoying their daily moment of zen. When you include beautiful botanicals and landscape-inspired prints in your project, balanced sound and minds are a PET panel away.


The Biophilia Collection features six ready-to-install prints — Clear Water, Cut Stems, Sandstorm, Succulent Wall, Tea Leaf, and Tree Rings. Impress clients easily and meet any need using Kirei Ink’s simple spec from the collection or a completely custom print. Whether you opt for custom or from the collection, Kirei Ink Biophilia transforms spaces into healthier, more inviting atmospheres that highlight the beauty of nature without sacrificing sound quality.


Achieve clearer minds for clients by adding Clear Water from Kirei Ink. With this print, you’ll add ripples that rid spaces of reverberation and give clients the sense of calm you get while kicking back poolside. This beautiful, abstract print grabs attention without being gauche. With subtle colors and a stunning pattern, Clear Water can stand out or settle into the background - perfect for luxury locker rooms leading to the pool deck or a focal point for large lobbies.


Cut out distracting echoes with flourishes of flora. With Cut Stems panels, you’ll add the feeling of tranquility that stems from the joy of trimming flowers. Available in color or a black and white option, this print can be bold or blend in as needed. With a chinoiserie inspired design, Cut Stems provides a delicate, intricate design to a space while diffusing and dampening rogue sound waves. Place Cut Stems panels or products in large hospitality lobbies for a vibrant, welcoming atmosphere to greet anyone who enters.


Play with a pattern of smooth shifts in the sand to add a subtle elegance to any space. Sandstorm drops your clients into the stunning landscape of desert dunes with a sound quality that gives a sense of solitude. Sandstorm - available in both color and black and white - is the most minimal look from the Biophilia Collection, allowing for strong accent colors and other focal points to stand out in the space. Try pairing Sandstorm with plenty of plant life like low maintenance succulents to lean into the desert oasis aesthetic.


Bring botanical terrains indoors with the addition of a Succulent Wall that clients won’t have to worry about watering. You’ll create a calming space with softer sounds and a refreshing feel to delight your clients. Succulent Wall isn’t meant to blend in. Make your project pop with these printed panels as a feature focal point in a space. From medical facility waiting rooms to office meeting spaces, effortlessly go from bland and echoey to bold and enjoyable.


You don’t have to be able to read tea leaves to see a brighter future for your clients when you add the acoustic capabilities and visual impact of the Tea Leaf print. This pattern plays with transparency and fine line work for a soothing and sublime backdrop fitting for any spa facility, coffee house, or restaurant. Pair Tea Leaf with light or dark accents to fit client needs all while taking on excess echoes for a calming impact.


Create spaces as serene as the woods with the natural, organic beauty of Tree Rings. This playful print adds whimsy and warmth to a space with its charming pattern and superior absorptive ability. This print channels topography and easily elevates the entire feel of any space. Place Tree Ring prints in classrooms or childcare centers for a fun look that feels reminiscent of the outdoors.


Wall panels aren’t the only option to incorporate nature into your next project. Apply any Biophilia print to any Kirei baffle, cloud, or tile to add a bit of wellness in a unique way with the added benefit of dependable acoustic performance. Whichever pattern, personal branding, or product you want printed on, just reach out and our team will be ready to assist!


These prints are more than just nature-inspired, they are manufactured with nature in mind. Kirei’s PET products are made from 60% recycled post-consumer plastics so you can be sure that every panel you specify is diverting hundreds of plastic bottles from landfills. Additionally, Kirei Ink panels come with numerous environmental certifications, including Declare Label (Red List Free), HPD, and Low-VOC. Printing is done using water-soluble, Greenguard certified PROGRAPHIC® UV ink. The LED inks contain less than .03% volatile organic compounds, are void of heavy metals, and contain up to 50% monomers and oligomers naturally derived from renewable resources, such as plants and biomass.


With ornate prints like those in the Biophilia Collection, precise abutting is integral to achieving the desired look. And it wouldn’t be a Kirei collection unless we made it easy for contractors, too. That is why every print has been test installed to ensure perfect repeats that are ready to go right out of the box. Kirei Ink panels are manufactured to abut with no trimming.


While some sustainability goes unseen, like the air quality and energy efficiency, you can bring visual impact of sustainability to a project with the addition of biophilia or recycled materials like PET felt. Kirei Ink offers designers an option to incorporate both of these in one product. Provide clients with the power to live well and without distracting echoes using the Biophilia Collection from Kirei Ink. Request your samples and start designing now.
