Glimakra storage units can reduce sound by over 40%

Words by 

Glimakra has introduced Sabine, a range of sound-reducing furniture designed to absorb noise in the workplace. The freestanding storage units are covered in square acoustic tiles and, together with their grooved inner surfaces, these help to reduce echo.

The Swedish company claims the storage units – whether empty or 40% filled with binders – are over four times as effective as a standard bookshelf at certain sound levels.

The grid-like, building-block-style design is available in four lengths and four heights, ranging in scale from small pedestals (2x2) and tall units (3x2) that can be joined to a desk and act as a divider, all the way to large wall cabinets (5x3 or 3x5).
