Brown office booths in interior

Ten noise-regulating acoustic products for communal interiors

Dezeen Showroom: a range of office pods designed for group and individual working and a modular system of noise-dampening lights are the latest acoustic products to be featured on Dezeen Showroom.

Also included in the selection are panels that take cues from historic design periods by Woven Image, a work booth that caters to neurodiverse people by Nook and sound-absorbing lampshades by De Vorm.

Acoustic products have exterior coverings made from compressed fibres such as wool, foam or felt that absorb sound waves, helping to reduce reverberation and dampen general noise levels in enclosed areas.

They are commonly specified in open-plan offices where they help to facilitate both individual and group working, but can also be useful across mixed-use, public, education and healthcare spaces.

Read on to see the latest acoustic products from a variety of internationally recognised manufacturers and brands featured on Dezeen Showroom:
