Hi Naman Mandhan !

I think that idea to use Nike Grind materials for this application is very exciting.

As I suggested to Acoustic Panels team before it might worth considering the following:

1. Highlight the nature of materials. Make the surface of the panels rough and uncovered. Firstly, irregularities of the material and surface help diffuse and reflect sound waves randomly. This sort of panels will not be suitable for studios and anechoic rooms but can be applicable for offices and meeting rooms. Secondly, this may of demonstrating materials can be one good point in marketing the product.
2. Create thinner and lighter version of the panel for ceiling mounting. They can be flexible enough to sag and take the form of a sail.

In both cases I assume that pieces on Nige Grind materials can be securely glued together.
