Austin, TX: Creatives, tastemakers, artists and adventurers have a new reason to hang their hat at Native Hostel in Austin, Texas as the experiential space takes its F*** Yes culture to a whole new level with the ultimate in tech-forward design for thinkers, doers and visionaries.
The E 4th St accommodation is the first in town to install Soundwall,
the perfect fusion of art, acoustics and smart technology. A flexible design and computing platform, Soundwall provides rich, hi-fi sound from a work of art.
An effortless marriage of stylish form and cutting edge function, the introduction of Soundwall means that Native guests can now stream music from their own smart device in-room directly from a work of art. Using a unique speaker technology, the surface of the Soundwall artwork resonates to create perfectly distributed, natural sound. Known for pushing the boundaries, Soundwall is a sublime match for Native, which sourced its own unique art true to its brand to be showcased on the Soundwall.
Guests can crank up the Soundwall and feel the base at its best in the showcase Romper Room. With three full baths, eight bunks, and a California king tucked amongst a communal space, it’s the perfect setting for rock star nights fuelled by an innovative audio backdrop.
As an internet connected, smart IoT (internet of things) product, Soundwall can be further integrated with other hotel systems, putting Austin firmly on the map as the leading destination for travelers who demand rich, immersive experiences to explore their way.
Margaret Burke, Manager of Hostel Operations said, “Soundwall has been a fantastic addition to Native. It encompasses our commitment to the arts, culture, and community by allowing each visitor to create their own sound environment within our space. We have seen groups use the Soundwall to stream music for events and gatherings, as well as during yoga classes and performance art experiences.
“In keeping with Native’s mission, our visitors are invited to command their own experience within our walls, rather than submitting to pre-programmed playlists. They can bring the energy they seek – whether it is a bachelorette party ramping up for the evening’s activities or a yoga instructor bringing mindfulness to a group seeking decompression and focus. The wash of sound is subtle and impactful, regardless of the vibe our guests are seeking.”
“Soundwall has always been known for its exceptional beauty, high quality sound and overall WOW factor,” said Adam Goodman, President of Soundwall.
“There is no better match than to have Soundwall technology proudly displayed at such a noteworthy and innovative entry in the hotel market with The Native, Austin. This installation aligns perfectly with the modern day hotel guest trend of enjoying one’s own entertainment content in room. Soundwall enables this in a truly amazing way. As we all know, Austin, TX is a uniquely wonderful city that sits at intersection of the arts, music and technology. Soundwall is the exemplification of this in a tech-forward, beautiful product.”
