Making a commercial product with left over materials, is easier said than done.
But after deep discussions and elaborate workshops with designer Andrea Ruggiero, a design and a method were developed that not only ensured a sustainable product, but also a product that could add something new and relevant to the acoustic segment.
Soundsticks consists of upcycled material left over from Offecct's furniture production, moulded into the shape of a tube that is held together in the ends by recycled aluminium caps.
Soundsticks offer a novel way to divide space while reducing ambient noise in public spaces or open plan workspaces. Available in linear, radial, and clustered configurations, Soundsticks are a modular ceiling-mounted solution that can be hung at any height to complement seating areas or tables of variable heights. Collaborative meeting spaces, waiting areas, or private work-study spots are just some of the spaces that can easily be created with Soundsticks.
