Making Work Sound Better
The Decibel program began as an experimental project with a directive to explore how sound attenuation properties could be achieved within thin structural panels.
Since then we have embarked on a journey of design trials and numerous prototype tests to fine-tune the narrative and application of this product. This system was designed with architects and space planners in mind, to offer them the flexibility to plan large open spaces with acoustic privacy and the tools to personalise the system, so that their project could have its own unique look. As its chief function is to create acoustic comfort, we named the system Decibel, the unit for measuring sound.
