The Sabine collection by Glimakra of Sweden is a unique approach to office decor that incorporates element designs that have been linked to well-being and positive dispositions. The sleek Sabine collection by Glimakra consists of felt-covered cabinets and partitions that smoothly absorb sound across a frequency range of 125 hertz to 4000 hertz.

Further experimenting with their sound-absorbing technology in this new collection, designers Johan Kauppi and Bertil Harström continue to explore ideas that stay away from the opposing ideals of cubicle versus open-concept when it comes to office layout. Sound absorption is one way to combat the barriers to open-concept work spaces, potentially eliminating noisy distractions, while the arrangement provides enough privacy without isolating each worker to a cubicle.
