'The Collective - Editions’ is the new in-house product division dedicated to developing market-led products manufactured in the UK that use optimum production techniques. 'Swell', the first product within 'The Collective - Editions' division, is a sustainable acoustic wall cladding solution that offers a unique height of 2.7m with no horizontal seams. Designed by Jones & Partners, Swell is made from eco-innovative EchoPanel® formed from 60% recycled PET bottles. Reminiscent of a wave and indicative of loose curtaining, Swell offers a soft, timeless wall finish with both acoustic and environmental properties. Available in 2.7m high and 900cm wide panels, Swell offers low VOC and meets Environmental certificate ISO14001. In addition, for every 1000 sheets of EchoPanel® manufactured, approximately 4.2 tonnes of post-consumer waste PET is diverted from landfill or our oceans. To date, over 230 million plastic bottles have been repurposed to produce EchoPanel products.
