In an effort to help travelers find a bit of peace in a hectic airport environment, the Frankfurt Airport has installed a series of 'Silent Chairs' in its terminals. Whether they are used for napping or for catching up on some work, these chairs provide an easy way for travelers to enjoy a moment of peace and quiet before their flight.
The Silent Chairs are large loungers featuring an arched design and glass-paneled sides. It is this unique design that helps to reduce ambient noise and provide a calming environment. The chairs are also equipped with integrated speakers that allow users to plug in their smartphone or tablet and listen to their own music. For those who are trying to get some work done, the chairs come with functional features such as integrated power outlets, USB ports and small side tables.
While noise-cancelling seating may seem like a small addition to an airport lounge, these chairs provide travelers with a welcome reprieve from the stress of air travel.
