Ear-relief for open spaces in the home, where there’s lots of activity. This panel absorbs annoying sounds from chitter-chatter, the clattering of pots and pans in the kitchen or the action picture on TV.
Dampens the general sound level in the room.
Reduces background noise from e.g. doing the dishes and the TV, making it easier to hear the conversation.
Customize your panel by piecing it together however you like. Each piece has a different color on the front and back so you can set your own style.
Suitable for public use as well as for all rooms in your home.
ODDLAUG panel is one of several components that help create a comfortable sound level in a room and works best when used in combination with other furnishings like sofa, rugs, curtains, etc.
The absorbing frequency varies depending on how many pieces you put together and how you hang them. For maximum effect, we recommend at least 4 packages and to hang the panels 4" from the wall.
To be completed with VIDGA curtain track system, gliders and hooks or RIKTIG curtain hook with clip or PORTION curtain ring with clip and hook.

We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.
By using recycled polyester in this product, we consume less new raw materials and lower our environmental impact while existing materials get new life.
Interesting conceptKELLYThese REALLY help omit the echo in a roomb& greatly improving the accoustics - and they are decorative! It CAN be used as a push pin board but definitely small push pins would be needed. A little challenging to assemble but worth it! I chose to put all the tabs to one side. Not so sure that was the best decision because it's slightly bows out from the wall but not by much at it's livable.4
Better than expected!JenniferThe sound panels do help dampen the noise coming from the wall I share with another apartment. They do need to be installed like a curtain, stretched tightly, which I figured out after trying to hang them in singular columns from wires, which just made them fold. I ended up using two Rigga garment racks also from Ikea to build a kind of sound dampening wall. I like these, they look nice, and I feel they were worth it for the price, for what they are capable of doing. I needed four packs to fill most of one wall of my bedroom.4
Works, butJuliaSo this panel works well and is fairly attractive which I like. However, it is difficult to hang without it constantly fall or popping off the wall3
fun concept, but not that great in practiceMatt OI purchased two packs to help dry up the sound in a dinning room. I woud recommed experimenting by laying out a pattern before trying to attach them together. As a music person, I can tell you these are not going to solve big sound issues. You can make gobo's with a bit of wood, insulation, and fabric. This product does very little change for the money. It will be returned.2
Easy sound solutionMuzzywumpWe needed something to block the sound from the music room and struggled with finding something that worked AND looked presentable. Heavy velvet curtains pooled over the floor would not cut it in our mid-century home! Enter ODDLAUG, along with a Vidga rod system with a corner piece extending from the wall to the left of the door around a corner to above the door opening. The ODDLAUG panel lives on a rod section behind the door, but once the door is closed, it rolls into place in front of the door, where it cuts the sound level 5-10 decibels. We needed 4 packages, and I might want another to make it just a bit wider. The look is trim and professional, but still friendly and homey. With a total cost of under $150, it was also one of the more cost effective solutions, as well.4
Our take on polyester
Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.
Virgin vs recycled polyester
Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.
Some challenges with recycled polyester
Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.
Only recycled polyester
IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.
At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.
What is recycled polyester?
When we create products from recycled polyester, PET bottles, and other sources, they get a new life in products like textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts, and even lamps. When using them, you get to enjoy exactly the same quality and function as with virgin polyester products. And naturally, they’re just as clean and safe in every way. And perhaps the very best part – you contribute to using less new raw materials too.
