With the rise in popularity of open concept offices, noise cancellation furniture pieces such as the 'Diplomate' by Pierre-Emmanuel Vandeputte provides a mobile way to create an independent workspace amongst an unenclosed work environment. The 'Diplomate' is a flexible desk divider that can be used to seclude individuals for added privacy, while simultaneously blocking out unwanted noise for peace and quiet.

The 'Diplomate' is a cream felt divider that clips onto a wooden frame. The frame is attachable to flat surfaces such as desks and counters and it creates a secluded space for workers to be productive.

While communal office settings can be ideal for collaborative idea sharing and cooperative work initiatives, facilitating a space for workers to also have individual space provides a variety of work environments in one space.
