Unlike visual landscapes, soundscapes can’t be seen. Sound doesn’t disappear when you close your eyes. The soundscape that surround us are perpetual and affect us more than we think. There is no escaping it, but there are many ways to make it more pleasant. 

Introducing our range of acoustics

Combo Cross by Abstracta


Combo Cross is a hanging sound absorber that encompasses awarded designer Pia Wallén’s most vital stylistic traits: simplicity, playfulness, tactility, as well as her strong passion for crafts. Present in the design is also Pia Wallén’s signature: the cross.

Combo Cross can be seen as a version of the famous Crux Blanket from 1991. Here too, the basic function is protection, not from cold, but from noise. Crosses have been cut out from the felt to make openings – like peepholes.

Pia Wallén’s cross reminds us of the Red Cross, using the symbol in conflicts to distinguish medics from soldiers since the late 19th Century. As a general symbol, the cross has many layers of meanings, such as protection, hope and healing. 

The Combo Cross panel is made from Blazer and comes in a variety of colours. 

Designer : Pia Wallén

Half A Hut by Gotessons


Half a Hut - a perfect small sound absorbing house that can be used for several purposes: as an individual workstation, a small meeting room or as relax areas combined with the The Hut Sofa. The house’s simple and straight lines are inspired by the classic game Monopoly and its game pieces that gives a timeless shape to the popular and practical activity based office.

Half a Hut is as the name suggests - half as big as the popular house The Hut, and is the latest addition to The Hut Collection designed by Workspace and realized and manufactured by Götessons. Contact us for details of Half a Hut and other Hut Collection extras.

Lily by Abstracta


Together with Norwegian designers Runa Klock and Hallgeir Homstvedt, Abstracta has taken a new step toward its objective of creating better soundscapes. The result of this collaboration is Lily, a noise-dampening lamp that also visually calms public spaces and opens up office-scapes.
Fully 120 cm in diameter, Lily is intended for lighting large rooms, such as restaurants and open office spaces – environments where both noise and visual information levels are high.

“Dampening noise is important, of course, but so is reducing visual stress,” says Klock.

Compression-moulded fabric-covered fibre felt and is available in a range of colours.

Designer : Runa Klock & Hallgeir Homstvedt

Deep Forest by Skandiform

An effective sound absorber that is easy to place and has a filling made from recycled textiles. The discreet design is a conscious interpretation of the saying that you can’t see the wood for the trees – it is meant to blend into the background of the room rather than being the headline act.
