Clothing is converted to acoustic paneling that has a unique look, connecting two traditionally highly resource-using industries (clothing and building) to extend the life of materials.

The Jury says
This solution points to a situation where clothing that would normally be burnt is upcycled into acoustic panelling. As clothing is a high-volume business, material that has come to the end of its life in one form, can have its life extended in another – providing a significant benefit to the world’s ecology.
