As one of four artists shortlisted for this year’s edition of the prestigious Prize of the Nationalgalerie, Florian Hecker has included Kvadrat Soft Cells in his work Formulation, where he dramatizes space with sound pieces.

Across the two exhibition halls housing Hecker’s installation, 143 m² Soft Cells panels cover the tall walls to create a textured, yet uniform surface. The acoustic effect of the panels is just as important to the work as it contributes to the play between the sound system and the sound-absorbing and sound-reflecting walls.
