AKUNOK ACOUSTIC SOFA
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.
