Have you ever driven your car in an unfamiliar area and found that you had to turn the radio down to see better? You are not the only one! That’s because our senses need to be balanced to work to their full potential. The same way the smell of a wine can affect the taste we experience when we drink it.

The Guardians “Sound of Success: Finding Perfect Acoustics for A Productive Office” article highlights that “Sound in a space affects us profoundly. It changes our heart rate, breathing, hormone secretion, brain waves, it affects our emotions and our cognition.”

When designing your office space, it’s important to include items such as fabric furniture, canvas pictures, carpets, rugs and cushions, which are items known to assist the acoustics of an office space. Ecophon explains “The best office acoustic solution is ultimately about worker health, well-being and productivity.  It requires consideration of the people, the activities taking place and the physical space itself. Improvements in technology and changes to organisational cultures mean workers have more trust and freedom to work from wherever they like.  The challenge is to create offices people would choose to work in and good office acoustics play a big role.” The Entente piece by Lyndon Designs for example will leave you in acoustic heaven!
