A peaceful environment is a basic human need. Nevertheless, we face constant exposure to background noise — from the ringing of your alarm clock to the murmur of conversation in modern open-plan offices. People consider lighting and room acoustics as one of the essential factors for quality-of-life at home and in the workplace. Studies have shown that a room’s acoustics affect productivity, the quality of human interaction, and one’s health. Good acoustics also reduce excessive background noise in open spaces such as kitchens, dining rooms, conference rooms, and lobbies.
In today’s open offices, workers often report noise and distractions as factors that hinder productivity and well-being. Often, acoustics is only considered after a problem arises when it’s easier to change fixtures than structural elements. Once a space is complete, it isn’t always easy to hang extra ceiling or wall treatments. Therefore, combining light with sound-absorbing materials to address these needs has excellent advantages.
Unlike some acoustic products that are bulky and take up a lot of floor space, acoustic lights can be hung elegantly over your head. Suspended pendants provide a smart and streamlined solution that can increase productivity, flexibility, and overall well-being without physically obstructing or taking up space you need. This reclaimed space is particularly important for amenities such as lounges and cafes that double as serious collaborative workspaces.
