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.
Research has shown that people do their best work in environments that allow for both social buzz while also providing them with boundaries (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.
