Privacy-Focused Sofas

The BuzziSpark Sofa Uses Dividing Screens to Create Private Nooks

— February 22, 2018 — Art & Design
The BuzziSpark sofa is an innovative piece of furniture that addresses the challenges of conducting a private conversation in a public space. Designed by Alain Gilles and the playful brand BuzziSpace, this new sofa invites users to relax in a cozy cocoon with high-backed privacy screens. The screens, at each end of the sofa, provide a nice little nook that blocks out a decent amount of noise. There is no divider between the nooks, therefore allowing sitters a chance to hold a conversation or even host a meeting on the sofa.

The BuzziSpark sofa could easily find a place in a home, but the sofa itself was designed to fit in offices. The material used in the screens blocks out a good deal of sound and helps to provide distraction-free workspaces for anyone inhabiting an end of the sofa. The BuzziSpark sofa is the first product from BuzziSpace's privacy-focused line, with a single-seat sofa being planned for the near future.
