Thanks in part to the advent of technological innovation and the developing reputation of open office floor ideas, our operating and residing spaces are getting noisier than ever. The good news is, a number of companies have taken up the challenge of creating quiet chairs that offer some peace and quiet.
One is the result of a collaboration of 3 business partners: John Lewis, a U.K.-primarily based division store Quiet Mark, a nonprofit organization that focuses on raising awareness of the negative results of noise pollution and Silentium, a organization that specializes in lively noise-reduction technological innovation.
This Quiet Chair is the first piece of furniture to use lively noise-reduction engineering. A prototype was stationed at John Lewis’s Birmingham, England, keep last year, allowing guests to experience an oasis of peace in a chaotic setting.
Following the exact same principle, the Offline Chair by Polish design student Agata Nowak requires peace and quiet to the next degree. It functions not only an acoustically insulated layout, but also a unique pocket that actively blocks Wi-Fi and cellular signals, making it possible for you to relax without distractions.
Having a quiet location to get away from it all eliminates the need for noise-canceling headphones or white noise machines. Despite the fact that neither of these chairs is commercially available, they signal a move toward escaping — even if just for a couple of minutes — from the seemingly countless hustle and bustle of our every day lives.
