Today, apps are mainly understood as digital applications, but apps can also be colloquial short forms for eagerness, implementation, meaning, adding or job applications. The term to app is also used short for to appreciate: to value.

With APPS, a series of acoustic design applications was created that play with the formal language of digital apps, which can be applied, to which you can “app” something. That apply additional advantages such as air purification, humidity regulation and toxin reduction and with which the designers “appreciate” nature and its cycles, the material and its properties and design possibilities.
