Pixie Dust Technologies develops hard sound absorbing panel
“iwasemi(TM) SQ-α” applying acoustic metamaterial technology ～A space that attracts the eye and attracts the sound～
Pixie Dust Technologies Inc. (headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, CEO: Yoichi Ochiai, Taiichiro Murakami, hereinafter “PxDT”), which promotes audiovisual digital innovation, has developed an innovative sound absorbing material “iwasemi(TM)” using acoustic metamaterial technology. We have developed a hard sound absorbing panel
“iwasemi(TM) SQ-α” equipped with
“iwasemi(TM) SQ-α” is a new sound absorbing material that realizes hard materials and various painting expressions that were difficult with conventional sound absorbing materials. This product is scheduled to be released around December 2022.
Most of the conventional sound absorbing panels are made of fabric or felt to give a soft impression.
In industrial spaces and inorganic spaces, there are cases where conventional sound absorbing panels cannot meet the needs of designers who design spaces.
In order to solve such problems, PxDT utilizes one of the
characteristics of iwasemi, “freedom in material selection and high degree of freedom in processing,” to create a hard and versatile material that was difficult to achieve with conventional sound absorbing panels. We have started developing a sound absorbing panel with a high degree of design that combines a sophisticated painting expression.
Features of “iwasemi(TM) SQ-α”
“iwasemi(TM) SQ-α” has the following features.
Taking advantage of the material flexibility of iwasemi(TM), we have realized a hard material that blends in with the space and a variety of painting expressions.
Equipped with a sound absorbing structure design that specializes in the frequency band of 500 to 1000 Hz, which is often included in the human voice.
By using recycled resin for about 60% of the main body, we aimed to create an environmentally friendly product.
Since the back of the main unit is a magnet, it can be easily installed. These features make it possible to easily create a space that achieves both acoustic performance and design.

iwasemi(TM) is a sound absorbing material developed by applying PxDT’s unique sound absorption design technology to acoustic metamaterial technology. The application scene of iwasemi(TM) extends to various fields of society such as construction, building materials, fixtures, railways, and automobiles. iwasemi(TM) sound absorbing material has the following three features.
1. Flexibility of sound absorption frequency characteristics 2. Both high sound absorption coefficient and thinness
3. High degree of freedom in material selection and processing Future prospects
“iwasemi(TM) SQ-α” is scheduled to be released around December 2022. Under the vision statement of Digitally Rebalanced., PxDT has developed an innovative sound-absorbing material, iwasemi(TM), using advanced computer-based sound-absorbing design technology to solve the noise problem. PxDT will continue to add the basic structure of iwasemi(TM), expand standard products, and develop customized products, etc., and by responding to noise issues and needs in a wide range of fields, promote the solution of noise problems in society as a whole. We will continue to.
