NOOK set out to design + manufacture a primarily Australian made soundbooth solution that reduces distractions & enhances privacy in open-plan offices. The challenge was to develop a high-quality eco-friendly soundbooth without costing the earth. To rival international solutions, NOOK demanded a small footprint, desk space, power and superior soundproofing, ensuring privacy & reduced office distractions. NOOK needed to be modular, enabling units to be assembled & moved by customers. Challenged to feel private, but not claustrophobic, suited to short private tasks (Phone + Video calls), whilst discouraging extended use. NOOK sought a minimal + calming aesthetic, referencing Scandinavian interiors, suiting a variety of office environments.
NOOK delivers a flat-packed modular sound booth, that takes less than an hour for two people to assemble with one hex key. Unique multi-layered panels - PEFC-Certified plywood and 100% PET marbled acoustic felts (est. 80% recycled ≈ 1200 bottles per booth) reduce sound ingress up to 30dB. With a single power entry point for 'Plug + Play' installation, interiors are dappled by calm soft box lighting, circular fan ventilation, and power + USB sockets are auto-switched. User testing identified optimum; wall, door, whiteboard + internal bench positioning. NOOK is minimally styled in neutral white + black finishes, with FSC-Certified American Oak hardwood frame + details.
