An inspiring workspace is crucial for any business as it promotes productivity, engagement, and innovation. According to studies, by eliminating noise in an office environment, you can:

Boost productivity

Acoustic comfort has a direct impact on productivity and well-being. Disturbances like nearby conversations and activities can be detrimental to others’ focus, and more so in open-plan layouts where noise travels far, wide, and in all directions.

Improve well-being

Along with access to daylight, flexibility, and product adjustability, acoustics is one of the key parameters associated with comfort and well-being in indoor environments. And considering the post-pandemic health concerns, hygienic and easy-to-clean products are a priority in keeping employees safe and at ease.

Encourage creativity

The ideation process blossoms in the right context. For most personality and group types, that’s likely to be one that is balanced in colour, texture, and biophilic design choices, is comfortable, and is free from distracting noise. And when people can customise spaces for their working styles, they’re empowered to ideate freely.

Support sustainability

Product materials, circularity, and durability are all necessary considerations in designing the office of the future, and they’re also required in green building certifications. Long-lasting products that can be recycled indefinitely are key to sustainability in both new constructions and retrofit projects.

Reception area

The reception area is your first opportunity to make a good impression on your visitors. So, it’s important to create a memorable one, with a clear focus on well-being. By integrating acoustics into the design phase, you can ensure speech clarity and speech privacy while maintaining visual appeal.


Circulation area

Circulation and breakout areas are great spaces for impromptu meetings. But you need to think about the acoustics. If the sound from these conversations travels throughout the building, it can interrupt employees who are trying to concentrate.


Huddle zone

Huddle zones welcome ad-hoc, informal collaboration and typically don’t require booking. They are, however, frequently tucked near core working areas, so poor room-to-room insulation can defeat their entire purpose.


Private zone

Also known as focus pods, private zones allow for undisturbed phone calls, private meetings, and quiet work. Acoustics have a dual effect here: noise disturbances shouldn’t travel in, and speech shouldn’t travel out.


Desk hotelling

In this flexible seating concept, desks are booked in advance and on a temporary basis. Desk hotelling is usually employed as part of a hybrid workplace model where employees expect the comforts of home to be matched (or surpassed).


Permanent workstation

Employees are likely to spend the majority of their day, week, and year at their dedicated workstation. When cognitive tasks are interrupted by noise day in and day out, that compromised productivity eventually aggregates.


Meeting room

Both speech intelligibility and confidentiality are essential in meeting rooms so sound absorption and sound insulation are paramount. And because so many different people use these shared spaces, it's important to keep their surfaces hygienic.
