Sometimes eavesdropping cannot be helped, but the 'Talk' furniture by Keilhauer is a collection that looks to minimize the efforts of earnest ears.

Making use of privacy screens, these chairs look to give you the most confidential conference you could hope for in a public place. The seating features high backs and v-configurations that block out nosy neighbours and instantly upgrade any lobby or room to impeccable interior designing status. Given the bustling and highly dense nature of cities, these couches are perfect for any downtown office, so as to give people a chance to speak and congregate with little distraction.

With the boom of social media where constant status updating is common practice, a little privacy cannot hurt.
