AKUNOK ACOUSTIC SOFA

ABSTRACTA

From an acoustic perspective, Akunok ranks among the best, with top scores from independent interior acoustics expert and Acoustic Facts. Its elegant, clean and honest design language evokes a subtle association with Japanese architecture.
Akunok is designed for dynamic environments characterised by noise and movement, such as open-plan offices and co-working spaces. It is also ideal for furnishing lobbies, libraries and reading rooms. Or for improving the soundscape and creating spatial variety in large, open environments, such as malls, train stations, and airports.

A play on the words acoustic and nook, Akunok is about carefully created seclusion — rather than establishing enclosed rooms.

The concept consists of generously deep and comfortable acoustic seats in one-seater and two-seater versions; an innovative floor screen; and two neat tables, one round and the other oval.

It isn’t just the sound-absorbing material inside the seats that dampens sound.

Akunok’s corners and voids also act as sound traps. The combination of a high seatback with a thick seat cushion allows to dampen both high- and low-frequency sounds.
