Acoustic: noun / the properties or qualities of a room or building that determine how sound is transmitted in it / əˈkuːstɪk
Working in an open plan office can be great; it’s a more relaxed, inclusive environment and encourages cooperation and team work. However sometimes it can also be distracting. So what can be done?
There are many ways to improve acoustics, such as adding soft furnishings, creating dedicated break out or meeting areas, and even adding plants! Here at Crest we are pleased to be offer a few different ways to accomplish this…
- Take a look at the ‘Pillow‘ range of furniture from Cascando, wall and ceiling panels which all offer additional functionality as well as acoustic properties. And if you like the thought of adding some plants, try Rombo, their range of colourful planters.
- Luceplan has a range of elegant lighting solutions that can also help. This includes Diade, Silenzio and Pétale.
- We also recommend Portus from Lammhults. This seating series offers a stopping point, a meeting point, a relaxing space or a sharing space – created by the combination of three simple elements: a soft sculptural bench, an ergonomic support cushion and a shapely back.
So if you’re looking to redesign your office or just tackle bad acoustics, get in touch – we can help!
