The Living Hinge
Utilizing the enticing movement and remarkable strength associated with CNC enabled flexible hinge technology, Smith & Fong Company has created The Living Hinge Collection™. Engineered to allow an otherwise rigid material to flex effortlessly into a 24″ (610mm) radius, Smith and Fong has explored a broad range of scale and depth geometries ultimately leading to a collection of over seven “Uniquely Bendy” designs.
The Living Hinge Collection™ is available in many colors from Natural and Amber to popular gray tones like Fog and Storm. Functioning as a high performance acoustical panel, the “LH” Collection receives a (Noise Reduction Coefficient) NCR of .7. Panels can be back lit and used in various unique applications such as walls, ceilings, screens, and columns.
