Kinnarps Group has been studying the issue of acoustic comfort in open- space for many years and places several solutions with a very attractive design.
Concerning furniture systems, are available cupboards with acoustically efficient doors (Ordemo) and a wide range of stand-alone easy movable panels (Rezon) also sliding into each other (Alp) or the more bizarre and glamour model (Wannabetree).
The wall-mounted acoustic panels range comes in colours and shapes that make it an ornamental as well as functional component ; decorative modular panels for free compositions (Ocean, Oktav, Global), hanging from the ceiling too (Aircone).
Acoustic comfort inside depends upon people living there: Kinnarps proposes a Voice Educator, a small and pretty device changing its colour when the tone of the voice is too high.
