The Mobile Storage Partition (MSP) and MSP Mini are designed to support dynamic and evolving learning and work environments. The containers are are part display board, part storage, part movable wall. The perfect complement for any studio, office or school, the units are easily moved and can be ganged to partition the space as needed.
The Milder Office Partition with Soundsoak panels and translucent Acrylic.
Partition system that allows workers to see and be seen, enabling workers to concentrate on the task at hand without feeling isolated.
Research has shown that that people do their best work in environments that allow for both social ‘buzz’ and activity while also providing them with boundaries and separation. The integrated SoundSoak acoustical wall panels absorb 50% to 90% of the sound striking the surface – reducing noise within a space and reducing noise transfer between areas.
The Milder Partition can stand alone or can be mounted to our workstations allowing for flexible floor layouts that vary from area to area. The system’s custom aluminum hardware is typical Milder, sleek, and minimal. The pre-finished birch plywood and SoundSoak are available in a range of colors. We also offer UV printed Pantones colors to match branding or existing color schemes.
Working with Henry Street Settlement (HSS) and Beyer Binder Bell Architects, we developed and produced a range of office furniture solutions for an open plan office, private offices, meeting and conference rooms, and kitchenette area.
Because groups of workstations are clustered in relatively small and tall spaces, we worked with a sound engineer to limit the level of sound by adding Sound Soak panels and translucent Acrylic panels to our standard partition wall.
Individual single-pedestal workstations have partition installed on two or three sides, allowing for workers to see and be seen at their choosing. Cubicle but not; individual areas feel open yet enclosed. The dividers can stand alone or can be mounted to our workstations allowing for flexible floor layouts.

The Architecture program at Tulane University was looking to replace roughly 250 desks in its studios, and they turned to AOS, a local Knoll dealership for help. After not being able find existing product to fit their needs, AOS worked with Milder Office to, together with students, faculty and administrators, develop a custom solution for the project.
After the initial design phase, Milder Office produced a prototype for Tulane. Some revisions were made to the design based on feedback during the review phase. With all stakeholders on board, Milder Office then produced the order.
The resulting workstation and mobile pedestal combination offered improvements over the old studio furniture (see last photos) including increased privacy, integrated task lighting (under the overhead storage shelf), cutting matte surface, pin-up surface, and flexible individual storage (pedestal). Tulane also specified Milder Markerboards for the space.
The order was shipped flat to the AOS warehouse where it was assembled and delivered to the Tulane campus.
The renovation was well received, and Tulane University has placed an order for more workstations for summer 2019.
