muffle creates the right balance for both concentration and collaboration space in current open layouts. More workers crave for a workspace where they can fully concentrate without being interrupted. The curved shapes of the modules gently “wrap around” workers to help them relax. The soft, comforting surface material brings a sense of security. The muffle system allows many entirely new ways to partition an office, at the same time blocking off other people’s eyes and noise. muffle was recognized as being superior to conventional low partitions in terms of its sound absorption at frequency bands containing high degrees of spoken voices.
