How it all started
We believe that our habitat is a place to meet and connect and therefore should involve more than just good looks. Our living environment should also feel pleasant. Acoustics are essential in our experience. At foamo we put maximum sound absorption at the heart of our designs, proving that acoustic solutions can be both effective and elegant.

Reverberation and undesired sound reverberation cause a great deal of discomfort and (unknowingly) affect our well-being. We are happy to help you create serenity in the spaces in which you live or work. This makes you feel energised, more concentrated and without having to miss a conversation anymore. In short, with Foamo never fomo again.

Although good acoustics are an integral part of a well-designed space, they too often play a subordinate role in interiors. Foamo is about developing and manufacturing products that make life more enjoyable, both through our vision and hearing. Our designs should therefore not only be appealing to the eye, but also work well acoustically.
The recipe is simple: we create attractive luminaires based on materials with a high degree of sound absorption. Acoustic effectiveness is the key here, because no matter how well the material used absorbs sound waves, size does matter. This is especially true when it comes to reducing medium and low pitched sounds. Therefore, even our small models have a relatively large cross-section.

We feel very fortunate with our workshop at the Hembrug site in Zaandam, close to Amsterdam. Here we design our luminaires and manufacture them by hand. Thanks to our solar panels, we provide for our own energy needs, including our demand for heating. Furthermore, we keep our supply chain emissions low by only working with suppliers from the Netherlands and our neighbouring countries.
