Shouting about noise reduction

With a recent survey finding that 57 per cent of those who work in open-plan offices feel that the noise level is disturbing, there is a need to find ways of reducing distractions and improving productivity.

Kinnarps has just launched Oktav, designed by Christian Halleröd, a sound absorbing panel, reusing waste materials for its filling.

"When I designed Oktav, I wanted to create an attractive, environmentally friendly product which creates harmony in the workplace", says Christian.

Ideas Materialised in Stockholm

Materia has launched a number of new products in Stockholm, which will see their UK launch on Feb 29th at Design Prima.

STACK is a stackable and linkable chair range with minimalistic shape and weight; available in different finishes and colours, the very tight stacking feature is a key characteristic for this new chair.

MONOLOGUE is a modular sofa with a large number of combinations although few components. Based on straight lines with a quilted square pattern on the seats, the designers Sandin & Bülow have created a sofa with strong character.

Both products will debut at Design PRIMA in UK.
