NoiseZero / public product design


The buildings on the road side are always exposed to the noise. If exposed to this noise constantly, severe stress cannot be avoided. To avoid this, soundproof walls should be established but these walls have flaws of obstructing the beautiful city view and dividing the space.

To solve this problem, the noise cancellation technology was applied to the streetlights that are on the road side. ‘NoiseZero’ does not only light the way but also play a role as soundproof to control the noise. Also, because it does not create wall to control the noise, there are no such flaws that appear on the original soundproof walls.
