Open plan acoustics, the future of office design

Open plan acoustics is the new frontier of office design. The acoustic reverberation of a space has a large impact on the working environment. Noise in open offices affects concentration and staff well being, yet open office environments enrich our lives with greater social interaction and encourage working collaborations.

Strahle have designed a product that preserves the open nature of an office, yet controls the sound waves that can disturb us. This is achieved with acoustic absorbers at low level to disrupt the path of sound. High level glazing creates an acoustic barrier without compromising the open nature of an office.

With System 7400 in conjunction with considered layouts, the office can be reimagined as a calmer environment yet maintaining the visual connection of the open office.

The TB.1 is the perfect space for working on a task or holding online meetings in absolute peace and quiet. Say goodbye to external distractions during video conferences and focused work.
