Danish studio Norm Architects‘ Tone Cabinet designs were created to dampen noise in the home as well as the office.
Created for Swedish brand Zilenzio – which specializes in acoustic products – the furniture is designed to absorb noise while remaining pleasing to the eye.
Until now, many of these had been aimed at office workers, with companies releasing rollable dividers for workers on the go, and combined desk partitions and lamps in a bid to tackle the challenges of crowded workspaces.
Norm Architects collection, meanwhile, is designed to work just as well in the home. It has a lightweight metal frame, on which rest nearly square rows of fabric-fronted cabinets.
Small metal tabs on the outer edge of the doors serve as handles.
Norm Architects has previously worked with Zilenzio on acoustic panels, made to resemble scrap wood and designed to make graphic wall patterns when combined.
The studio is behind a wide range of design projects, creating everything from a contemporary take on antique bathtubs to the interiors of Kinfolk magazine’s Copenhagen office.
