Decibel 43

Making Work Sound Better

The Decibel program began as an experimental project with a directive to explore how sound attenuation properties could be achieved within thin structural panels.

Since then we have embarked on a journey of design trials and numerous prototype tests to fine-tune the narrative and application of this product. This system was designed with architects and space planners in mind, to offer them the flexibility to plan large open spaces with acoustic privacy and the tools to personalise the system, so that their project could have its own unique look. As its chief function is to create acoustic comfort, we named the system Decibel, the unit for measuring sound.

Decibel 43 seamlessly combines furniture and Micro-Architecture. The elements create versatile space division and enclosures while keeping the overall feel of an open and social environment. They are designed to work together individually and collectively to create practical spatial concepts for group collaboration and individual privacy to optimise your office’s productivity and creativity.

Led by purpose, backed by research, and driven by design, Decibel 43 will help you design great spaces so that we can work better.

The Team

I believe that design should elicit emotion and showcase an object’s application, materiality, engineering, and most importantly, its function and how it optimizes the overall user experience.
 
Good design is intelligence and diligence made visible. The Decibel program aims to influence the idea of space planning with a user centric approach.
